Uruguay Headed for a Historic Year in Tourism

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay’s Deputy Tourism Minister Benjamin Liberoff told EFE on Friday that in the first quarter of this year, 20 percent more visitors entered the country at border crossings than in the same period of 2017, which seems to presage a historic year for tourism.

At the Montevideo management office of the country brand Uruguay Natural, which has hosted since last week the 93rd Creole Week, Liberoff noted that these percentages seem to foretell “the largest number of foreign visitors in the history of this period.”

The flood of tourists will be able to experience Uruguayan traditions around the different regions of the country through some “very important” events like Creole Week, which looks likely to welcome, according to the deputy minister, a total of some 100,000 people.

Creole Week, which coincides with Uruguay’s Tourism Week (Holy Week), is being celebrated from March 24 through next Sunday, April 1, in the Montevideo district of Rural del Prado, and which Liberoff described as a promotional event of Uruguayan traditions and festivals.

Regattas, gastronomic festivals and musicals, jazz sessions, performances by the Sodre National Ballet, Beer Week in Paysandu, and the international film festival are just some of the activities around the country that began last week.
