Best time to visit Rio de la Plata:

Summer (December to February): This period is peak tourist season in Uruguay. The weather is warm and sunny, making it perfect for enjoying the beaches along the coast of Punta del Este or relaxing in Montevideo. This time also coincides with the festive season and Carnival celebrations.

Shoulder Seasons (Spring and Fall - September to November and March to May): These months offer pleasant weather with milder temperatures. It's a good time for outdoor activities, exploring cities without the peak crowds, and enjoying nature as the landscapes flourish with greenery.

Winter (June to August): Uruguay's winter is relatively mild compared to some other countries, but it's cooler, especially in the evenings. If you prefer fewer tourists and don't mind cooler weather, this can be a good time to visit. Also, this time might be ideal for enjoying hot springs in places like Salto.
