    Is Uruguay a dangerous place to visit, or is it relatively safe for women and children on holiday? What is the infrastructure like? I have a distant aunty in Montevideo I'd like to visit in January.

    Uruguay will have to be one of the safest countries in South America, though as I tell everyone you do have to exercise your common sense, and obviously take the usual precautions.

    Basically, don't wander into dark areas and don't flash cash as petty crime is a way of live down there. A a whole, Uruguay is a safe and beautiful country with a small town feel and incredibly friendly locals.
