Rising in the coastal range of southern Brazil,
between Curitiba and Porto Alegre, the river flows west towards Argentina;
forming the boundary between the two nations.
The River Uruguay then runs south, between Argentina and Uruguay
and empties into the Río de la Plata.
Large boats can reach Paysandú and smaller vessels may continue to
Salto; 320 km from the river's mouth.

The capital of the República Oriental del Uruguay is in the
southern part of the country, on the Río de la Plata; a modern city with the heart of a
village and excellent beaches nearby: Playas, Ramírez and Miramar.
Montevideo was founded by the Spanish governor of Buenos Aires, in
1726, to prevent the Portuguese from Brazil extending south and fortifying the strategic
heights in the region.
Spanish-Portuguese rivalry continued into the early 19th century,
until Montevideo was made the capital of independent Uruguay, in 1828, acting as a buffer
state between Spanish Argentina and Portuguese Brazil.

Directory for sites related to Uruguay. Most of it is in Spanish.
Primarily a resource for Uruguayan hotels with some background information on Colonia del Sacramento, Montevideo, Atlántida, Piriápolis, and Punta del Este. Hotel information
is better laid out than Travel Now or hotelguide.com, but prices differ considerably
between all three and they don't all have the same hotels covered.
Another Uruguayan directory that is needlessly slowed down with a Java news applet that
has nothing to do with Uruguay.
