Everything you need to know about the Festival of Books


Uruguay Uruguay is known for its great scenery, especially near Punta del Este, good food and friendly people. It's a short flight or ferry ride from Buenos Aires. The best time to go is in summer (December through March), but I went in November and had a wonderful time.
