Lets go Surfing in Uruguay!
Are you in need of an exciting, new surfing adventure? Think about surfing in Uruguay, a beautiful South American country resting on the southern tip of the Atlantic Ocean.
The average temperature of the country is between 6 to 14 degrees Celsius and 17 to 28 degrees Celsius, or between 43 to 57 degrees Fahrenheit and 63 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit.
With all of the tidal lagoons coming up into the ocean, you will be sure to catch great waves on any given day.
Planning your trip to Uruguay will be easy, but consider your needs: are you looking to explore Uruguay and take part in Uruguayan holidays or do you want to just surf freely and not worry about any crowds?
If being around other surfers-and people in general is something you enjoy, then visiting Uruguay in January through March will be a fine idea. That's a big tourist season for Uruguay because it's during Carnival.If you surf near the capital city of Montevideo Uruguay, you will be able to take in some of the Carnival celebrations when you aren't surfing, so you'll be entertained day and night.
However, if you want lots of open space to yourself, you might want to surf Uruguay during April, May, and September through December. It's also fine to surf in June, July and August, but the weather in Uruguay, while rather warm and humid the rest of the year, gets a little chillier then.
That being said, it won't be cold enough to be unsurfable, but it's just information you should know before try to surf in Uruguay.
If you want to explore Uruguay on your holidays and surfing is something you've always wanted to try, you will be able to find a good spot for beginners.
