Planning to spend your next vacation in Uruguay? Book your cheap flights to Uruguay, and you'll soon find yourself in an absolute jewel of a country, and one of South American's smaller yet no less splendid of a country. Uruguay's tourism is often overshadowed by the likes of its more popular South American rivals: Argentina and Brazil, but offers so much to visitors. Not only is it a reasonably priced country, but absolutely beautiful and varied, with everything from the big capital city of Montevideo, to the history of its UNESCO World Heritage Site, Colonia del Sacramento. Come for national history, colonial style architecture, beautiful beachfront, a fabulous arts culture, not to mention to world's leading country for beef consumption-yum!
No trip to Uruguay is complete without a trip to the nation's capital and the heart and soul of Uruguay and half of the nation's capital. Visit the Palacio Legislativo, a 1900's building which is the home of the Uruguayan government, and offers excellent tours. The building itself is extremely distinguished and artistic, with tours highly recommended. Plaza Independencia is Montevideo's main city center, with a grand monument dedicated to Jose Gervasio Artigas, the 'father of Uruguayan Independence,' and also home to his mausoleum. Check it out, and acquaint yourself with Uruguayan history. Palacio Taranco is a beautiful museum, housed in a 20th century house, featuring fabulous examples of Uruguayan art, architecture, furniture and such. With so much to see and do in the capital, you'll never be at a loss for activities. Cheap flights to Uruguay might be a challenge to find on the internet, but not if you know where to look for them.

Once you buy your airline tickets to Uruguay, and visit Colonia del Sacramento, you'll be struck by so much colonial history and beauty at this UNESCO World Heritage site. Start your trip in the walled old city, and Colonia del Sacramento's historic old quarter, dating back to the 1700's. Start at Puerta de la Ciuradela drawbridge, which was used to mark the entrance to the old city. The Plaza de Toros bullfighting ring only saw 8 bull fights until the sport was banned in 1912, and is a pretty cool site to check out. There are museums galore here, such as the Portuguese Museum, featuring lots of military items and personal items from the 1700's and 1800's. The Tile Museum is located in a beautiful 300 year old stone building, filled with similarly aged tiles from Uruguay, Europe, South America, and more areas.
By ordering cheap flights to Uruguay, you've booked yourself a ticket to the most exclusive beach resort, Punta del Este, or the 'San Tropez' of Uruguay. This is where the rich and fabulous love to spend their days frolicking on the beaches, in the casinos and at the bars and nightclubs. The beaches here are ideal, with Playa Braza being perhaps the most famous. It's a great place to relax, sunbathe, play in the sand, party and hang out (the waters are too rough for swim.) Playa Mansa is a wonderful family beach, with excellent waters for swim, as well as frolicking, eating, and enjoying yourself in the sun. Check out the Conrad Resort and Casino, if you're looking to gamble and play one of your favorite casino games. Check out the Casapueblo musem, with no 90 degree angles in its design, beautiful ocean views and original art by Carlos Paez Viaro.
