If you’re looking for local advice, our Matador destination experts may be able to help. This week we take you south, to the underestimated little nation of Uruguay.

One of the newest members of our growing roster of Matador destination experts, Dominic is a travel writer and photographer based in Montevideo.

“Whether you are in the town-ish capital city of Montevideo, or hanging out on the beaches of Rocha, Uruguay will offer its visitor a memorable time.”

About me: I say “cheers” in ten languages and counting. I enjoy meeting newness – whether it be a different type of cheese or a new country.

In addition to Uruguay, some of his favorite travel destinations have been Colombia, Australia, Japan, and Denmark.

I’m fired up on: Culture. History. Writing. Photography. Speaking Spanish. Playing basketball. Reading. Cooking. Still learning more and more salsa. New-ness. Now.

Dominic has this to say about his adopted home country: “Whether you are in the town-ish capital city of Montevideo, or hanging out on the beaches of Rocha, Uruguay will offer its visitor a memorable time.”

Let’s collaborate: I am currently in Montevideo, writing for a few publications, starting to take my photography seriously (as I know when and where to show my expensive camera and equipment). I am keeping a blog here if you want to check it out.
