Our country is a reflection of Peace, Security and Natural life, as few places in the world can currently offer.

Regarding the fact that the south borders the Río de la Plata and the east the Atlantic Ocean, wide beaches on its coasts can be seen which are coveted not only by the local but also by the international tourism. To the 650 Km of enjoyable oceanic coasts, tourists should add the lagoons and small coasts of rivers and streams and in this way they will have a wide spectrum of options to satisfy their various likes.

To be located between Argentina and Brazil allows Uruguay to be at a short distance from these countries’ most important cities, as well as from other important cities in Chile and Paraguay.

Uruguay is part of MERCOSUR. Its strategic location makes Uruguay a special protagonist in the market made up of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

The respect for its civil rights and its long democratic tradition – among other factors- have characterized Uruguay since its beginnings. Our country, forged since its origins with European blood, has one of the highest alphabetism rates in the world.


Uruguay has been world wide known, since mid XX century, for its democratic order and its culture. Painters like Pedro Figari and Joaquín Torres García are two of the highest exponents of world reach. Nowadays we are able to identify other virtues such as the excellency of the tourism offered by Punta del Este, the Rural Tourism and the quality of its lands. Its quality of natural country has allowed and encouraged in a big way this kind of activities, bringing foreign tourists as well as investors.
