Located 260 mi/415 km northwest of Montevideo, on the Argentine border, Salto, Uruguay, is a surprise: a cow town with a good art museum, the Museo de Bellas Artes y Artes Decorativas. There's also an anthropological museum, a history museum and a sculpture museum dedicated to the exceptional Edmundo Pratti. Northeast of town you'll find Termas del Arapey, one of several bathing spas in the area. Salto dates from the gaucho days when cattle were driven to town, slaughtered, preserved with salt and then shipped to Cuba and Brazil.
