Paysandu

Situated on the banks of the Uruguay River, the city of Paysandu nestles up close to the border with Argentina, and, with a population of over 76,000, represents the country's fourth-largest city. The riverfront areas provide large beaches, popular with sports enthusiasts and people just looking to relax. Urban attractions in Paysandu include religious and domestic architecture, with preserved colonial-era buildings sitting alongside newer additions to the main, monumental plazas. Heading up the river reveals more of the region's attractive natural features, including waterfalls, hills, and scenic riverbank areas.

Where to stay in Paysandu

Paysandu's accommodations lie on or just off the main strip, called Republica Argentina at its eastern end and Calle 18 de Julio at its western end as it approaches the river. Choices include simple mid-range hotels offering standard rooms, and more luxurious fare boasting additional facilities such as indoor pools, bars, and onsite restaurants. Looking farther afield, campgrounds provide a good budget option, while neighboring towns, well-linked up by regional highways, offer simple guesthouses just a short drive from the river and its beaches.
