National Geographic Lists Uruguay among 20 Top Destinations

MONTEVIDEO – National Geographic Traveler magazine has included Uruguay on its list of 20 must-see places to visit in 2016, proclaiming the country an “oasis of stability.”

The luxury resort of Punta del Este, the coastal wetlands, historic Colonia del Sacramento – a World Heritage Site – and Montevideo are some of the attractions mentioned by the magazine.

Traveler cites with approval novelist Carolina De Robertis’ description of Montevideo as “the calmest capital city in Latin America.”

“Low-profile Uruguay has received attention recently thanks in part to the unconventional ways of Jose Mujica, its president from 2010 to 2015, who lived in a ramshackle house on a dirt road and donated much of his salary to charity,” the magazine notes.

“The attention is deserved: South America’s second smallest country, dwarfed by surrounding giants Brazil and Argentina, is an oasis of stability,” the article insists.

Deputy Tourism Minister Benjamin Liberoff hailed the praise from National Geographic Traveler as “an important distinction from a media outlet with influence and weight.”

“What is emphasized in that (article) is precisely what we strive to promote, which is the quality of life in the country,” he said.
