Parque Salus

Salus is the dominant brand of mineral water in Uruguay. The source is a spring in the hills outside of Minas, about 130 kilometers from Montevideo. The company has created a park around the source with gardens, nature trails, and a nice playground. Admission is free. We enjoyed a pleasant couple of hours there yesterday afternoon.

At the spring, they have a puma statue spouting water to feed a little pool. Plastic cups are provided for the visitors to drink from the lion's mouth. The plant itself is just across a courtyard with the bottling equipment visible through big glass windows.

The Patricia brewery is also on the grounds of the park.

tihrty years ago Coca Cola tried to buy the company. They saw even back then competitive nature of mineral water. I believe Salus is still in the hands of uruguayans
