The Uruguayan territory has an extension of 176,000 km2 and 138,000 km2 of jurisdictional waters. Rivers, streams and lagoons form a dense hydrographic network divided by slight undulations. Uruguay is a natural country, a green backwater between the Uruguay River, Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean, where good weather and short distances allow the nature lover to take advantage of it all year round.

The country offers the tourist the most varied options to enjoy the most of your visit: 650 kilometers of coastline with spas such as Punta del Este,  Tourist Resorts where you can enjoy country life, places full of history such as Colonia del Sacramento, declared Cultural Patrimony of the Humanity by the UNESCO, a quiet Thermal region, or its capital Montevideo, a city full of life that breathes culture, are just a few examples of what Uruguay has to offer.

The level of security, high literacy rate, high levels of health and a territory with 98% of potable water networks are some of the indicators that confirm that the quality of life is one of the most important patrimonies of the country.
