Rivera

The capital of the department of the same name, Rivera stands on the border with Brazil, with the city of Santana do Livramento only a street away. Growing out of a small village established in 1860, Rivera's residents can today move freely between the cities, with customs and checkpoints situated outside of the cities. Rivera's tourism largely revolves around duty-free shopping, as well as its proximity to dense, lush areas of rainforest.
