10 Things NOT To Do in Uruguay

Get more Tips here!

What’s not to love about Uruguay? The nation is not only home to an inviting cultural heritage and diverse natural beauty, but it’s routinely praised as South America’s least corrupt and most democratic nation. However, it's always good to remember these 10 Things NOT to do in Uruguay to avoid troubles.

1. Don’t Stay on the Beaches
There’s nothing wrong with spending a few days lounging and enjoying the scenery, but you’ll be remiss if you don’t take the opportunity to travel inland and enjoy all the cultural and natural beauty of the country. It’s absolutely worth exploring.


2. Don’t Drop Your Guard in Montevideo
While the capital city isn’t more dangerous than any other major city throughout the world, it still has its share of crime. When you’re in tourist-heavy locations, it’s a good idea to be on the lookout for pickpockets and small time criminals.


3. Don’t Park Anywhere
Urban areas in Uruguay are known for car break-ins, so it’s best not to leave your rental car unattended on the street. Montevideo has several pay parking options that will provide for the safety of your vehicle throughout your stay.


4. Don’t Be Put Off By the Hello Kiss
Don’t be surprised if you meet someone and find them leaning in to kiss you on the cheek. Men and women alike will greet you in this way, so it’s best just to go with it.


5. Don’t Shop at the Same Store Over and Over
The prices of goods can vary from place to place in Uruguay, so try to explore the area and visit a series of different shops. You might find that some shops have better prices on various items.


6. Don’t Just Wander Into the Ocean
In the Beaches, lifeguard towers often have flags hanging outside. A red flag indicates the most dangerous conditions and means you should probably stick to sunning yourself rather than taking a dip.


7. Don’t Give Money to Street Kids in Montevideo
They might look friendly and charming, but if you hand over a few bucks, you could be feeding addiction. One of the hardest hit segments of the population are young kids who beg on the street to get cash for their next fix.


8. Don’t Go Without Learning Some Spanish
It’s best to learn a few phrases of Spanish to get through most interactions. Most people in Uruguay will be very patient with you, so don’t be nervous about trying the language even if you’re not fluent.


9. Don’t Go at Any Time of the Year
As gorgeous as it is, Uruguay is also home to its fair share of natural disasters, as well. Be sure to watch the weather before you go, and in the event of an emergency, just pay attention to the local authorities.


10. Don’t Leave Home Without Some Cash
The official currency of Uruguay is the Uruguayan peso. The value of 30 pesos is about one American dollar. As a result, most places love doing business with the dollar, and you can often negotiate the price of certain goods.

Best Places to Visit in Uruguay

Best Places to Visit in Uruguay
Bordered by Argentina and Brazil, the tiny country of Uruguay is often overlooked by those heading to its bigger neighbors. Uruguay is a country you cannot afford to skip from your Latin America itinerary. It has so much to offer, whether it’s surfing beaches, good wine, stunning scenery, delicious steaks and of course marijuana.

Cross its borders and the reward will be endless delights, from glamorous coastline to ranch-peppered interiors where wild lands, gaucho culture, and local folklore lives on. It was one of the first on the continent to allow gay marriages, legalise abortions in 2012 and established a welfare state in 1903.
And of course, the marijuana which it’s so famous for since December 2013, Uruguay legalised the cultivation, sale, and consumption of marijuana for recreational use.
Here are the top ten places to visit on your next trip.
1.Montevideo
2.Colonia del Sacramento
3.Salto del Penitente
4.Pan de Azúcar
5.Punta del Diablo
6.Punta del Este
7.Laguna Garzon
8.Cabo Polono
9.Carmelo
10.Piriapolis

As it is a really relaxed city you should take it easy and enjoy the tranquility as best as possible!

--- Things to do in Montevideo ---

1) Ciudad Vieja
In the video I mentioned a free tour which takes place every friday to discover the old town. Anyway you can also do it on your own! The tourism office next to the town hall provides free maps with all POI and all sights are in walking distance close to each other.

2) City from above
At the tourism office you’re also able to get a free ticket for the terrace at the top of the town hall. Take the elevator and enjoy a great view over Montevideo!

3) Discover the architecture on a walk
You can find an interesting mix of architectural styles in Montevideo – discover them by walking around the innercity, where you’ll also stumble upon nice pieces of Streetart.

4) La Rambla de Montevideo
One of the best things about this city is the promenade along the river. You can find some nice spots along the 22km long “Rambla” to relax or for doing some workout.5

5) Chivito
Food should alway be part of a travel experience. Apart from BBQ/Asado like in the other countries around you can find a sandwich called “Chivito” – it’s the Deal in Uruguay and -of course- it comes with meat ;)

Casual, handheld footage from our June vacation to beautiful, natural Uruguay! Shot on Canon T3i. Locations include: Montevideo, Colonia, Punta Del Este, Minas, Canalones, San Ramon, Maldonado, La Paloma, Punta Del Diablo, Pirapolis and Rocha.



Uruguay is a welcoming country that offers a peaceful, genuinely laid-back culture that is notably distant from the world's current conflicts and troubles. Uruguayans are an inclusive, conversational and happy people. We were delighted that Montevideo, Uruguay's capital city boasts a relaxed atmosphere, is affordable and also has a thriving artistic community. With bountiful natural resources and a high quality of life, it's no wonder this country is also a popular destination for expatriates and digital nomads.

Quick City Overview: Punta del Este, Uruguay (HD)

Punta del Este es una ciudad peninsular situada en el extremo meridional de Uruguay, en el departamento de Maldonado. Es uno de los balnearios más importantes de América Latina. Está ubicada sobre una estrecha franja de tierra que convencionalmente separa el Río de la Plata del océano Atlántico —aunque ambas riberas están bañadas por aguas ya marinas—. Cuenta con una población permanente de 12 423 habitantes, cantidad que alcanza los 450 000 durante la temporada turística en verano. Es uno de los centros del conurbano de Maldonado, que en 2011 tenía una población de 135 399 personas. En la Ronda Uruguay desarrollada en esta ciudad, nació la actual Organización Mundial del Comercio.

Punta del Este is a city and resort on the Atlantic Coast in the Maldonado Department of southeastern Uruguay. Although the city has a year-round population of about 9,280, the summer tourist boom adds to this a very large number of non-residents. Punta del Este is also the name of the municipality to which the city belongs. It includes Punta del Este proper and Península areas. The first Europeans to set foot in what is now Punta del Este were the Spanish at the beginning of the 16th century. However, the colonization of the area actually began around Maldonado at the end of the 18th century due to Portuguese expansionism.[ Punta del Este and its surroundings at the end of the 19th century were kilometers of sand and dunes, but in 1896 Antonio Lussich bought 4,447 acres of uninhabited land and there he started a botanical garden, Arboretum Lussich, and planted trees and plants from all over the world. Later the trees started to spread on their own, and now the area is full of mostly Pines, Eucalyptus, Acacias and various species of bushes. On 5 July 1907, it was declared a Pueblo (village) by Act of Ley 3.186. Its status was elevated to Ciudad (city) on 2 July 1957 by the Act of Ley Nº 12.397. Punta del Este hosted an American Summit in 1967 attended by U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. In September 1986, Punta del Este played host to the start of the Uruguay Round of international trade negotiations. These negotiations ultimately led to the creation of the World Trade Organization in 1994.

Punta del Este é uma cidade do Uruguai, localizada no estado de Maldonado. Punta del Este foi considerada o balneário mais luxuoso da América do Sul pela revista Forbes em 2008, superando Cartagena de Indias, na Colombia, e Armação de Búzios e Balneário Camboriú, no Brasil. Diversos famosos possuem casa de veraneio no balneário, como os ex-presidentes argentinos Fernando de la Rúa e Carlos Saul Menem, o ex- presidente brasileiro Fernando Collor de Mello, o ex-presidente uruguaio Luis Alberto Lacalle, o ex- ministro argentino Domingo Cavallo, a cantora colombiana Shakira, o jogador de futebol espanhol Gerard Piquet, o cantor porto-riquenho Ricky Martin, o cantor espanhol Julio Iglesias, o ex-jogador argentino de futebol Diego Maradona, os jogadores uruguaios de futebol Sebastian Abreu e Diego Forlán, o tenista argentino Juan Mantin Del Potro, a atriz argentina Susana Giménez, dentre muitos outros. A cidade abriga ainda o Maior Hotel Casino da América do Sul, o Conrad Punta del Este Resort & Casino.
