One of the smallest countries in South America, Uruguay is a pleasant and laid back country that is primarily known for its beaches, the most popular ones located in Montevideo – the country’s capital and at Punta Del Este. These beaches are excellent and are good enough to attract many vacationers from the neighboring countries of Argentina and Brazil.

Montevideo is Uruguay's only major city and is noted for its sophistication and diversity. It has a nice collection of restaurants in the Mercado del Puerto, where you can munch on some huge steaks. You can also check out the ranches in the countryside that raise the cattle. Please check out our list of Montevideo Uruguay hotels if you are planning to visit Montevideo.  We also have a guide to Montevideo attractions that highlights the best sights there.
 
In additional, the Portuguese influences are evident throughout the country. One example is the charming 17th century colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Uruguay
Imperdible... ir a "Cabo Polonio"... en el departamento de Rocha a como 2 horas de Punta del Este. Pasando una serie de dunas arriba de una especie de tractor, estilo zafari (único medio para llegar a la playa)... se llega a un pequeño pueblo de pescadores... con una de las mejores playas de Uruguay... tranquila, exquicita, donde se puede descansar, comer bien y tomar un par de caipitinhas a la orilla del mar. Mas que recomendable!!

Dont take any tour with Buquebus or other, only the boat.
Then don't take a taxi at the port.
They rent lot of nice car just near, walk 100m following everybody.
