2. They Hosted the Very First World Cup
Not into chemical extracurriculars? Not a problem. If you’re more of a sports guy Uruguay is ground zero for futbol. Not only does it have a pretty damn good national team, but it was the site of the very first ever FIFA World Cup in 1930. Estadio Centenario where many of the games were played was even declared by FIFA as the only historical monument of World Football, the only building of its kind and definitely worth a visit for any fan.
