This charming little country, nested between Argentina and Brazil in south eastern South America, is internationally renown for Punta del Este, famous summer retreat and meeting point for members of the jet-set and worldwide celebrities of just about any kind.
Nearest airport is Laguna del Sauce, in Maldonado Department.
Even though several airlines operate there: TAM, Gol, Sol, Pluna (Uruguay's national carrier) and Aerolíneas Argentinas, the airport holds a very peculiar record.
Last summer, the number of private jets landing at Laguna del Sauce (an average of 25 daily) was bigger than the number of commercial flights, making it the only international airport of this kind.
As for the total number of Uruguay airports, the list goes up to 65, while only 16 of them have paved runways - concrete or asphalt.
