The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off on June 14 when host Russia takes on Saudi Arabia and given that we love both travelling and the beautiful game of football (soccer), Prometour is previewing every participating country’s best destinations to visit throughout the month of June. Up next is Uruguay!

Uruguay might be the second smallest sovereign nation in South America but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to see and do when visiting the Latin country. From the Río de la Plata Basin, and the Uruguay River, to the Laguna Merín and the Cerro Catedral (whose peak reaches 514 metres), Uruguay has much to offer. There’s a good reason too why the Economist named Uruguay “country of the year” in 2013. Uruguay to be regarded as one of the most liberal nations in the world, and one of the most beautiful.
