Uruguay Tours & Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about a Uruguay trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Uruguay Vacation Planning page for in-depth Uruguay travel tips.

When is the best time to visit Uruguay?

Every season is the best time to visit Uruguay! Uruguay has a temperate climate with no extreme weather conditions, all year round, making it the perfect travel destination. During the spring and early summer months (from September to December), the temperature in Uruguay slightly increases while the chances of rain lower. The autumn months are also an excellent time to travel to Uruguay (from April to early June). If you are interested in visiting Uruguay during the holiday season, we recommend booking your trip as early as possible. It is a hectic time for both international travelers as well as South Americans.

What is Uruguay famous for?

Uruguay is famous for its beautiful beaches, rolling hills, farmland, and authentic gaucho culture. Wine enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that Uruguay is also famous for its wine production of Tannat – an excellent red wine grape said to be elegant, soft and tinged with blackberry. Authentic wineries in Uruguay are sure to produce and sell this variety of wine on a wine-tasting tour in Uruguay!

Is it safe to travel to Uruguay?

Yes. Staying safe in Uruguay is easy, as it has one of the lowest rates of violent crime in Latin America, and therefore, it is highly unlikely that you will encounter any problems during your trip. However, just like in any other highly-populated area, be sure to use precautions when traveling around Uruguay.

We recommend leaving expensive jewellery and electronics at home and use a money belt while exploring new areas. One of the best advantages of private tours is that you will be accompanied by a private, personal guide who will ensure your safety.

Is Uruguay worth visiting?

Uruguay is one of the best places to do long-distance horseback riding. And its beaches are second only to Brazil’s. If you are into wine, you must visit the country for its unique Tannat wines!

Is English widely spoken in Uruguay?

Approximately 99% of the population in Uruguay speak Spanish. However, English is often understood and used mostly during business transactions. On a fully-custom Uruguay tour, travelers can enjoy having English speaking guides who can help communicate with locals in any situation.

Do I need vaccinations to visit Uruguay?

The CDC recommends that travelers are up to date on their measles and routine vaccinations. They also recommend most travelers to consider getting their Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccinations. However, it is highly recommended to consult with your doctor at least one month before your trip to get clear recommendations as to which vaccinations are necessary.
