Tourist attractions in Uruguay

by Phil
(Colon , Michigan)

Here are some of my favourite Tourist attractions in Uruguay

Aguas Dulces: Know for its awesome fishing and is located in the Rocha Department. I ate some fantastic seafood and a unique fruit called Butia.

Santa Teresa National Park: The view here is breathtaking. There is a wonderful Fort known as Fortaleza de Santa Teresa and plenty of camping at the park which is run by the government of Uruguay.

The whole family loved this one and my wife thought it was beeautiful.

Make a night of it!

Montevideo Uruguay - the Capital city: Argentinians come here in droves over the summer and it is a favorite vacation destination for many. As the capital city you will find museums, history, culture and all the amenities of any modern North American city.

It is well known for many things including the home of the central government and its beautiful white beaches.

I especially enjoyed the fascinating architecture with influences from throughout the world.

The Indian and Gaucho Museum: This historic center is located in Tacuarembo and is open Mondays to Fridays from 1 pm to 7 pm. Weekend hours are 2 pm to 6 pm - if my memory serves me right.

Mercado del Puerto: If you want some action and interaction, check this out. It has tons of authentic Uruguayan restaurants where you can sample lots of interesting Uruguay food recipes and bazaar is always crowded with tourists and local people of Uruguay.

Colonia del Sacramento: One of the most romantic cities. With cobblestone streets, old architecture fantastic parks and quaint restaurants. The nightlife was pretty good too.

Termas de Dayman: Located in Salto Uruguay. A health spa for the whole family with natural springs it is known for its healing powers for almost any ailment. The wife and I relaxed while the kids tired themselves out with all the water activities.

Casa del Pueblo: One of the most notable Artist endeavours in Uruguay and located in Punta Ballena, just north of Punta del Este

If you are looking for some all day excursions, I suggest you check out the following Tourist attractions in Uruguay:

  • Cerro Pan de Azucar

  • Colonia Suiza

  • Museo Didactico Artiguista

  • Punta del Diablo offers Awesome fishing and Surfing!

  • Punta del Este is the Tourist hotspot

  • River Delta

  • SOS Marine Life Rescue Center

There are lots of other great Tourist attractions in Uruguay but these were some of my families favorites. - Phil

Colonia is defined on the actual riverside thus be sure to go walking round the shores and also climb the actual stairways from the lighting house to get good views from the area.
