The climate in Uruguay is temperate: warm summers and cold winters. The predominantly gently undulating landscape is also somewhat vulnerable to rapid changes from weather fronts. It receives the periodic influence of the polar air. Without mountains in the zone that act as a barrier, the air masses freely move by the territory, causing fast variations of the climate. The coolest month is June, while the warmest is January. The rainfall is equally distributed throughout the year, but tends to be a bit more frequent in the autumn months. There can be frequent thunderstorms in the summer.
The sanitary conditions are very good. There's no need of special vaccination to enter the country.
The Eastern Republic of Uruguay is located in the southern part of South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the northeast, Argentina to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the southeast and the Río de la Plata (River Plate) to the southwest. The country is divided in 19 departments. The capital of Uruguay is the city of Montevideo, which is located inside the department with the same name, and it is placed in the south, in the bank of the River Plate.
