Best Time To Travel To Uruguay
We recommend traveling to Uruguay anytime due to the comfortable year-round temperatures. People often flock to Uruguay for the great strips of sandy beaches and the perfect beach weather from October through March; however, the rest of the year offers great deals on accommodation, wonderful cultural sites to visit, vineyard tours, water sports, horseback riding, as well as opportunities to spot dolphins, whales, and sea lions! There’s quite a lot you can do throughout the year here and you won’t want to leave without attending a festival such as Carnival (the longest standing Carnival in South America), Fiesta de la Patria Gaucha, or one of the several wine festivals.
