In Uruguay it is very common for people to take a two hour nap around 3-5. They do that because Uruguayans stay up till 3 in the morning partying. The concept of an afternoon siesta is common some South American countries and a little in Europe. Uruguayans tend to have lunch at 2 to 4 and then after their two hour long siesta tea at 7 to 8. The Uruguayan culture is very different than ours and that changes their schedule a lot because they party all of the time. All the stores are closed from 1 to 4 so the owners can have lunch and nap.
