I arrived in Uruguay from Buenos Aires, after an hour long lovely ferry ride which took me across the Rio de la Plata, to Colonia del Sacramento, a beautiful colonial town of Portuguese origins which is definitely among the places to visit in Uruguay. I spent two full days there, just relaxing in the lovely city, enjoying its tiny alleys and colonial houses as well as the vintage cars.

I then went to Punta del Diablo, a small fishermen village which has one of the best beaches in Uruguay and where I fully recharged my batteries for four days. I laid in the sun, read a lot, swam, befriended the local dogs, ate lovely food and most of all relaxed.

My final stop was Montevideo, the vibrant capital of Uruguay. There, I walked around town and did one of the best things to do in Montevideo: took a stroll on the Rambla.

I loved Uruguay through and through: its people, its lifestyle, its culture. I wish to go back again!
