Chuy is a town in the Atlantic Coast region of Uruguay, with its twin town of Chuí right across the street in Brazil.
The main street in Chuy is the actual border between Uruguay and Brazil. One half of the town speaks Spanish and pays in pesos, while the other half speaks Portuguese and pays in reais.
Buses stop in the center of town, on Leonardo Olivera near the Plaza Artigas.
The border is open, so you're free to cross back and forth between Chuí and Chuy. If you plan to continue into Brazil past the town of Chuí, though, make sure you get your passport stamped at before entering the town. Bus drivers should stop there and wait for you if you ask them to. When leaving Chuí for the rest of Brazil, you'll likewise need to stop at , and the same thing in reverse if you're coming from Brazil to Uruguay.
