Uruguay is a small country nestled between Argentina and Brazil. It boasts a beautiful coastline along the Atlantic with beaches, sand dunes, and the occasional clear blue lagoon. Most of the interior of Uruguay is a rolling grassland, spotted with deer, wildcats, and an array of exotic birds. The people of Uruguay are known for their gaucho culture, which is responsible for the variety of mouth-watering barbeque dishes that are common in the country. A cruise to Uruguay should also make a mandatory stop to take in a performance of the tango, that most passionate of Latin dances.
