Q: What are the main attractions in Uruguay?

A: Situated in South America, Uruguay is a smaller mid-latitude country whose main appeal is its long Atlantic coastline and the picturesque town of Colonia. This historic town of Colonia is also a World Heritage Site for its well-preserved colonial quarter.

If you visit Montevideo be prepared for an active night life and cultural attractions like museums and galleries. Wine tourism is starting to take off here.
