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. República Oriental del Uruguay has a longstanding love affair with tourists from the United States, which means the entire country is ready and waiting to receive every kind of traveler, from the adventurous to the immobile. That doesn’t mean that Uruguay is a nation to which you should travel without doing a little research. To make the most of an Uruguayan vacation, here are some tips and tricks on places and actions you should avoid.

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.
