Uruguay Things to See and Do

follow us

The list of things to do in Uruguay includes everything from strolling through the Mercado del Puerto on a Saturday in Montevideo to lounging on one of the city's most popular beaches, Pocitos Beach.For something different, visit one of the largest sea lion colonies in South America at Isla de Lobos in Punta del Este. Things to do in Uruguay can be as simple as sharing a mate with a local, or visiting beautiful Colonia for a steak dinner. Don't underestimate this under-the-radar South American country: there is plenty to keep you busy, with less hustle and bustle than some of the other more-traveled destinations.
