One of the smallest and safest country in South America, Uruguay’s biggest attraction is its coastline, which boasts endless sandy beaches and tiny fishing villages. Even inland, the network of streams and rivers means that you’re never far from somewhere to swim or enjoy watersports. The landscape’s gentle hills, pampas plains, marshland and woodland are great for enjoying nature and spotting wildlife, and the relatively sparse population makes for stunning night skies, unspoiled by the lights and smog of big cities. Uruguay enjoys a high level of education and good sanitation standards – tap water is drinkable throughout the country. Montevideo has all the nightlife, culture and facilities you would expect to find in a capital city, within a compact urban area with the ability to navigate on foot. Furthermore, connections are easy and quick to Uruguay’s gigantic neighbours, Argentina and Brazil.
