One of the main tourist attractions of Uruguay is its beaches, that is why most tourists visit the country in summer.
Along the coast, summer temperatures can reach very high values, but inside the country they are a little bit cooler, especially at night.
The most celebrated festival is Carnival, which takes place on Monday and Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday.
For a few days, Montevideo turns jovial and festive.
Over the Easter various traditional activities are organized:
roasts, dressage horses, Horse riding or folk music.
