Things to do in Uruguay : The Night-life in Uruguay is very good and here there is also Tango see Teatro Solís !. If you like the water you can surf, windsurf or perhaps take a boat tour or go sailing. Check out Cabo Polonio's lighthouse with a trek. The capital Montevideo perhaps is the first port of call for you and make sure not to miss a river front walk as a good introduction to the city. Go see a game of footie and visit the Museo del Fútbol in the Estadio Centenario, where Uruguay's national team won the first World Cup in 1930.
