Honestly it's pretty nice. I've been mainly in Montevideo itself, but have visited a few cities in the interior as well (TacuarembÃ³, Melo, Salto, Mercedes). It's really beautiful here, and the landscape is like the perfect segue between Argentina and Southern Brazil.
Montevideo's a great city, although it's gotten more expensive as the dollar has fallen. I think goods are generally still cheaper in Argentina though. It's more low-key than Buenos Aires, and I could see being here in the Summer as a great vacation. Given that I'm here for work, I haven't gotten to experience as much as I'd want to, but it is a really cool place.
And with the Copa America going and the recent deep-run by PeÃ±arol into the Libertadores, it's been a great footballing atmosphere. The Estadio Centenario is incredible.
