Montevideo

With a rich cultural scene and plenty of developed beaches, Montevideo vacations appeal to a growing number of visitors from around the world.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Zoo Villa Dolores. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Plaza Independencia, stroll around Parque Rodo, admire the masterpieces at Palacio Taranco, and admire the striking features of Palacio Salvo.

Plan my Montevideo trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Switzerland of South America
One of the smallest countries in South America, tourist-friendly Uruguay is often called the "Switzerland of South America" because of its consistent economic development and progressive society. Open-minded Montevideo serves as the starting point of most Uruguay vacations, offering visitors an eclectic cultural scene and a chance to discover some of South America's major architectural treasures. Away from the cosmopolitan capital city, vacations in Uruguay involve exploring wildlife-rich areas along the Atlantic and touring the rustic interior on horseback, gaucho style. In this sports-loving country, the highlight of your Uruguay trip might just be a soccer match between Penarol and Nacional, the country's two major clubs.
