How does our Uruguay eSIM work?

An eSIM is an embedded SIM card, and you probably already have an eSIM-compatible device. When you install an eSIM for a country or region, it lets your device connect to local networks in that area. This means your device will have data without needing Wi-Fi or paying roaming charges.

Use a Uruguay eSIM to stay connected

Uruguay is a Spanish-speaking South American nation distinguished by its lush interior, beach-lined coast, art-deco structures, and prominent landmarks.

When visiting such a beautiful tourist destination, you’ll want to share pictures and keep in touch with your friends and family.

This is where a Uruguay eSIM is helpful. It’s the most convenient and affordable solution for staying online when there isn’t available Wi-Fi.


How much travel data do I need in Uruguay?

A few factors will determine your travel data needs in Uruguay. When you’re in a hotel or café, you’ll probably have access to Wi-Fi. But when spending your time traveling and sightseeing, you might want to use several apps that require mobile data.

Thanks to a Uruguay eSIM’s flexible data plans, you can start with a small data package and upgrade whenever it’s needed.

We also have a travel data calculator to help you estimate how much data you’ll need for your trip.


Will I pay roaming charges with a Uruguay eSIM?

Forget about roaming charges with a Uruguay eSIM. An eSIM will instantly link your smartphone to local networks in Uruguay, giving you prepaid data while traveling.

To avoid roaming charges on your primary SIM, please make sure you’ve turned off Data Roaming on your primary SIM (and confirmed you aren’t enrolled in a carrier travel plan) to prevent your home carrier from adding roaming charges to your next bill.

Popular foods to try in Uruguay

Uruguayan cuisine is influenced by the cuisines of many other European nations. Here are three classic Uruguayan dishes you must try.

Chivito: Although its name translates to “little goat,” Uruguay’s national dish is a slice of grilled or roasted beef served in a bun with lettuce, tomato, mozzarella cheese, and a fried egg.

Asado: This dish is made by barbecuing meat over a wood fire, then served with side dishes like salads, bread, and of course, beer.

Chajá: This heavenly Uruguayan cake is made up of three layers of vanilla sponge cake, peach syrup, dulce de leche, finely chopped meringue cookies, and scrumptious whipped cream.

Uruguay enjoys a mild climate all year long, which make it a great travel destination.
