Where to go in your car rental in Uruguay
When you decide to rent a car in Uruguay, you have the convenience of exploring the country on your own terms. Start in Uruguay's capital city, Montevideo. Be sure to explore the national monuments and museums there before heading up the coast to Colonia del Sacramento, the oldest city in the country. This city boasts beautiful architecture and a few interesting museums. Check out Uruguay's oldest church, Iglesia Matriz, and the city gate and wooden drawbridge. When you've seen all that Colonia del Sacramento has to offer, make your way up the country's western coast along Rio Uruguay. Stop in the small town of Salto to experience the natural hot springs. You can explore so much more of Uruguay when you decide to rent a car, and Sixt wants to make that decision as easy and convenient as possible.
