border to border within a day ) there is plenty to see and do. With the
proper permits, collect an astounding diversity of aquarium compatible

colonies along the coast. View the abundant birdlife. I can pretty much
guarantee seeing a Nandu (rhea- the South American equivalent of the

Go back in time. Visit an estancia and experience the lifestyle revolving

wide, open vistas or just relax. Experience a different culture and
New aquaintances become old friends very quickly.
I've traveled here 4 times and plan to go back. So at least you should
experience Uruguay once."
