New Years Eve in Uruguay is such fun, there are parties everywhere and incredible fireworks to see all along the coastline. We partied the night away at La Susana Restaurant, we danced barefoot in the sand after dinner, we all had sparklers and ate the necessary grapes to mark the New Year.
I love Uruguay. For such a small country it has so much to be proud off and I don’t just mean Diego Forlan, Uruguay’s rather striking soccer International. I have visited Uruguay three times over the past ten years, each time with my family. We all adore this wonderfully friendly small South American country, it is the perfect place for a holiday to visit with children or friends, no matter what their age. Last December, ten of us, two families with teenage children ranging in age from 12 to 21, headed down to South America from New York, it’s such an easy overnight flight and the best part about it all, there is no jet lag. It’s like flying to Dallas.
