Uruguay Travel Guides for Backpackers

In so many ways Uruguay is undervalued as a travel destination. I suppose that sitting in the shadows of both massive South American countries Brazil and Argentina will do that to a country. In fact, many people simply lump Uruguay in with Argentina rather than giving it its own due and attention. However, the truth is that Uruguay, although quite similar to Argentina in many ways, is also very distinctive. One would be doing themselves a huge disservice by passing up the opportunity to visit Uruguay. There are a number of jewels hidden away in this tiny country, and some places that might be obvious destinations are so often skipped over by travellers with their eyes set on bigger prizes. In Uruguay you wont be far from beautiful architecture, a quaint town, a magnificent beach or all three combined.
