Hockey is a growing sport in Uruguay with the majority of hockey concentrated in the capital, Montevideo with other areas currently isolated from the sport. The Hockey federation’s aim is to take the sport further afield, outside of Montevideo into the whole country, to increase the enthusiasm of players and make this sport a more popular one.
When you’re not playing sport, visit one of Uruguay’s many pristine beaches or travel to Montevideo, Uruguay's culturally rich capital with its 19th century neoclassical buildings and a photogenic Old Town. Other places to visit are the picturesque cobblestone streets of Colonia del Sacramento, beautifully set above the Río de la Plata or South Americas most glamorous resort of Punta del Este. For those seeking wildlife, a trip to the fishing villiage of Cabo Polonio, with its sea lions, seals, penguins and whales spotted offshore is not to be missed.
