Uruguay Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 50%, Uruguay represents an interesting blend of the Colonial with a seemingly insatiable desire to embrace 21st century industrialization. A visit to the Museo de la Revolucion Industrial will give you an excellent overview of the country's long years of struggle, where seemingly everyone wanted "a piece of the action" in some form or another. But while there is an undeniable eye towards the future, they definitely haven't forgotten the past as you'll find with a visit to the enchanting Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO world heritage site that takes you back in time to a simpler age. Then after spending a few days wandering the cobblestones, you can head to Termas de Dayman, a series of thermal spas that are unequaled in all of South America. Oh, and, of course, you can't forget the pristine beaches of Punta Del Este or Punta Del Diablo, where you can kick back and soak up the sun to your heart's content. Overall, Uruguay is only going to get more and more popular, so make the trip now while it's still relatively undiscovered.
