Most international flights arrive at Montevideo and secondarily Punta del Este (Maldonado). There are many airports in Uruguay. However, not all Uruguay airports have regularly scheduled flights. In fact, some small airports have no regularly scheduled passenger services.

Some regional airports in Uruguay are only served by small "local" airlines which do not make their fares available to major travel web sites. For flights out of that sort of city, you would need to research which airlines serve the city and locate their web site or phone number by any means you have at your disposal.

Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay or the Republic East of the Uruguay (River) (Spanish: Republica Oriental del Uruguay), is a nation located in southern part of South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the north, the Uruguay River to the west, the estuary of the Rio de la Plata (literally "River of Silver", but commonly known in English as "River Plate") to the southwest, with Argentina on the other bank of both, and finally the South Atlantic Ocean to the southeast. About half of its people live in the capital and largest city, Montevideo. It is the most politically and economically stable nation in South America.

The landscape features mostly rolling plains and low hill ranges (cuchillas) with fertile coastal lowland, most of it grassland, ideal for cattle and sheep raising. To the southwest is the Rio de la Plata, the estuary of the Uruguay River, which forms the western border, and the Parana River, that does not run through Uruguay itself. Several lagoons are found along the Atlantic coast.

The climate in Uruguay is temperate, but fairly warm, as freezing temperatures are almost unknown. The predominantly flat landscape is also somewhat vulnerable to rapid changes from weather fronts, as well as to the pampero, a chilly and occasionally violent wind blowing north from the pampas plains in Argentina.

Uruguay's economy is characterised by an export-oriented agricultural sector, a well-educated workforce, a developed industrial sector and high levels of social spending. Argentina and Brazil together account for nearly half of Uruguay's exports. Although its twentieth-century history includes dictators, violence, corruption and economic upheaval, for the last twenty-five or so years Uruguay has been a model of institutional integrity and fiscal responsibility.

As with its neighbour Argentina, Uruguay is heavily populated by people of European origin. 97% of the population is of white European descent almost evenly split amongst Italians, Spaniards, followed by those of English, French, German, Portuguese, Irish, Russian, Scandinavian and Armenian origins. Many of the European immigrants arrived to Uruguay in the late 1800s and have heavily influenced the architecture and culture of Montevideo and other major cities. For this reason, Montevideo and life within the city are very reminiscent of Western Europe. Church and state are officially separated. Most Uruguayans adhere to the Roman Catholic faith (66%), with a large nonprofessing group (31%).
