South America on a Shoestring - Uruguay (Chapter)
This is the Uruguay chapter from Lonely Planet’s South America on a Shoestring guidebook.
Uruguay is a backpacker’s dream. Travelers come for the wild, surf-pounded beaches, for celeb-spotting at Punta and the history-soaked smugglers’ port of Colonia. They stay for the people – warm, open and sincere folk who have constructed one of South America’s most progressive societies.
- get snap-happy on the cobbled streets of the former smugglers’ port of Colonia del Sacramento
- hit the beach in style or in the wild along the country’s beautiful stretch of Atlantic Coast
- get those hips moving to the candombe rhythm at Montevideo’s Carnaval party
- restaurants & accommodation
