I don’t think much of Uruguay. I went there because it was a ferry ride from Buenos Aires…and because one should be worldly. The towns closest to Argentina are all colonial, which is great I suppose if you’re 60. The beach towns are closer to Brazil (literally) and can be cool, but they aren’t going to knock anybody’s socks off. I would go back to Punta Del Este and maybe try the beaches north of there, but not much else. BA and Rio offer just too much more to spend significant time in Uruguay. Good looking and nice people though 🙂

Notes to self:

-Stay somewhere other than Old Town Montevideo!
