Uruguay Travel Health Advice

Hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccinations are recommended, and travellers are advised to take precautions against mosquito bites due to a high risk of dengue fever. Medical and dental treatment is expensive in Uruguay so comprehensive travel health insurance is strongly recommended. It's best to take sensible precautions regarding the consumption of food and water; visitors should stick to washed, peeled and well-cooked food, and bottled or purified water are better options than tap or well water.
