Despite being one of the smallest countries in South America, Uruguay continues to capture the imaginations and hearts of adventurous travelers who are hoping to have a unique and secluded destination. The areas surrounding the capital city of Montevideo are the most popular destinations, but Uruguay packs adventure into every one of its small corners.
The area east of Montevideo is one of the most Westernized places in Uruguay with innumerable beach resorts, and plenty of water activities. Immediately east of the capital are the major resort areas of Atlantida and Piriapolis. From here, you can venture into the surrounding countryside and climb the 493 m (1617 ft) Cerro Pan de Azucar or visit Minas, a lovely town set in wooded hills. The boating, fishing and swimming are good along the beaches of Mercedes.There are also many excellent museums in Paysandu, Uruguay's second largest city.
The largest and best known of the resorts is Punta del Este, one of South America's most glamorous and exclusive destinations. Here you will find yacht and fishing clubs, golf courses, casinos and beautiful holiday homes. If that's not enough, there are excellent beaches, perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
Just offshore is Isla Gorriti, which has more superb beaches and the ruins of an 18th-century fortress. You can also find Isla de Lobos, a nature reserve that is home to a large sea-lion colony.
In the lively waterfront capital of Montevideo, modern skyscrapers jostle with art deco and colonial buildings. Stick around and you'll discover a thriving cultural and entertainment scene.
West of Montevideo, and covering the portion of Uruguay which fronts the Río de la Plata and the Río Uruguay, is the country's most important agricultural area. Its outstanding attraction is the lively colonial city of Colonia (del Sacramento), an under-appreciated town of narrow cobblestone streets flanked by whitewashed buildings.
