Uruguay Tourist Attractions
Uruguay draws a huge crowd of tourists annually, especially during summer.
The country has a large number of sandy white beaches, monuments, lush greenery, ranches and a taste of the exotic South America.
Some of the Uruguay tourist attractions are mentioned below.
Punta del Diablo is a famous tourist spot of Uruguay, for those looking for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can enjoy miles of beaches, surf, fish, laze around in wooden cabins and enjoy a generally relaxed rural lifestyle.
Next is Punta del Este, a plush resort that comes with beaches, swanky hotels, restaurants and parties, and is known for its many beach activities and all-night discos. However, if you find Punta del Este too crowded for your taste, try Isla Goritti, which has more beaches as well as fortresses.
Casa Pueblo, located just five minutes from Punta del Este, is the Uruguayan Mediterranean villa and art gallery, housing renowned artist Carlos Vilaro's masterpieces. Casa Pueblo comes with breathtaking works of art and a bar.
Montevideo is the place to be at in between late February and early March. The place is all about art, culture and festivities. Palacio Salvo in Montevideo is another Uruguayan attraction that is a must-visit for those who appreciate architecture.
Uruguay's beaches also offer plenty of water-based fun, so you can take your pick and go boating, swimming, surfing or fishing. Uruguay's Colonia del Sacramento is all about cobbled streets, colorful history and scenic beauty. You can see the local museum, lighthouse, drawbridge and bullrings, and then let your hair down at the local nightspots and other entertainment venues. Plaza de Torros is all about striking architecture, while Feria de Tristan is the place for shopping for antiques, records, books, pets and more.
