Yes, Uruguay is very safe. Montevideo is a capital city, so it is recommended to be careful at night, but you can visit it at any time. Colonia is safe at all times as it is a very quiet city.
Uruguay can be visited all year round! It depends on what you are looking for and if you prefer to travel in cold or warm weather, but you can visit Uruguay at any time of the year.
The climate is template and humid (average 17 °C), with warm summers and uniform rainfall throughout the year. Due to its latitude, the four seasons are clearly differentiated.
Uruguay can be enjoyed in 1 day with a tour from Buenos Aires or in multiple days visiting more places and in more depth. We recommend 1 or 2 days in Colonia and 1 or 2 days in Montevideo.
