I've been in Uruguay less than a year and am still trying figure out the sun path during different times of the year.. Is there a tool to find the sun's path determination which also creates a visual representation for each time of the year? Google earth or something else? I found this but it only gets me to halfway to where I want to end up ....

Your near the equator so sometimes it is to the north and at other times it is to the south.
In the USA it is always to the south.

But to answer your question. Go to this site and enter your address+date+time
