Major Rivers In Uruguay
Uruguay is surrounded by rivers on three sides.
In the north the Cuareim River forms the border with Brazil for more than 175 miles (280 kilometers).
On Uruguay’s southern border is the Río de la Plata, the large estuary formed by the union of the Uruguay and Paraná rivers.
The Uruguay, from which the country took its name, forms the western boundary and is by far the largest and most picturesque of the country’s rivers.
