Bordering Brazil, is the city of Chuy, strategically located in the "corridor" that forms Laguna Merín and the Atlantic Ocean. The Uruguay - Brazil International Avenue, which separates it from its Brazilian namesake, is characterized by a large number of shops, especially free-shops, which are an unmissable attraction.
Year after year, both cities work together for the staging of the biggest carnival party in the eastern part of Uruguay: The Carnival Without Borders of Chui - Chuy. The artists who participate in this festival of singular beauty are Scolas do samba of Rio Grande do Sul, Pelotas, Sta. Victória do Palmar, Chui, and groups of Montevideo, Maldonado, Rocha, and Lascano, among others.
