Uruguay is nestled between the continent's two giants, Brazil and Argentina, and Montevideo, Uruguay's capital city, is located at Uruguay's southernmost point on the Rio de la Plata.
A charming city made up of 19th century Beaux Arts buildings, parks, and historic monuments, Montevideo is home to more than half of the nation's three million citizens. Small in size, but large in status, Montevideo is an example of stability and democracy envied by her larger neighbors, and she is one of the most literate nations in the world, with a tradition of humanism and social justice.
