Rio de la Plata is the widest river in the world and separates Argentina from Uruguay. It is almost 200km (120mi) wide at the point where it joins the Atlantic in Punta del Este. The capital city Montevideo gets some waves and big stormy swells can produce fun pointbreaks at places like Solis Grande or San Francisco, a pointbreak out by Punta Colorada in Piriapolis.
