Essentially made up of great plains, known as Pampas, and long sandy beaches, Uruguay offers beautiful landscapes.

Uruguay is located in the geographic continuity of the Argentinian Pampa, that is to say that the country is mainly made up of great plains. The Pampa itself will be confronted with steep mountains and deep canyons, fed by numerous rivers. These regions, with their uneven relief, are conducive to a rich and varied biodiversity. This is the case, for example, with the Quebrada de los Cuervos National Park, which is home to a wide variety of birds including mountain peacock, saffron blackbird or Dominican Pepoaza.

The rest of the territory is characterised by large stretches of fine sandy beaches, which are concentrated along the Atlantic coast. You can admire this seaside landscape by staying in one of the many hotels in Punta del Este or Punta del Diablo. The coasts are also home to incredible marine life, including in the Isla de Lobos Island, home to the largest sea lion colony in the country. The south of Uruguay, where stands the small town of Carmelo, is famous to be the country wine region.

Salto is also well worth a visit, as it is famous for its relaxing spa's on the banks of the Uruguay River.
