Our destination was Salto, in the northwest of the country, a relatively large town on the Rio Uruguay, which divides Argentina from Uruguay. Salto is famous for its hot springs, so we spent two days in the waters taking it easy and relaxing ahead of our upcoming 11 months of travel!

Travelling too often is about rushing around and ticking off the tourist attractions, but it can be just as rewarding to take things slowly and discover lesser known places. Salto rounded off our two weeks in Uruguay, and it was a great place to end a fantastic fortnight.
