We've got different accents. I'm Mexican and I've found a little bit difficult to understand Argentinian Spanish for instance.
Someone here told you that it is like the difference between American and British English. I dare to say that it is true. As soon as we get involved in trying to find and answer we can get into trouble. We've got different cultures and ideologies. We've got words that have different meanings and what they have in vocabulary, we don't. It is very difficult to get a good answer.

I'm Uruguayan and the accents and pronunciation is different between them .Argentinian and Uruguayan Spanish are very similar but Argentinian tone is different and some different grammar ,I find it ok to speak to a Mexican but to someone from Spain I have no idea how to understand what they say at all

I can talk with a mexican with no problem, despite that they have different meanings for some words.
Argentinian spanish is nearly the same to uruguayan spanish, but there are some things that we don't have in common. In grammar, it's all the same. But argentinians speak with other tone.
Note: Argentina has a lot of regions with differences in their spanish: the south, the west (close to the Cordillera de los Andes, there they speak similar to chilean people), the north (next to Bolivia, there they speak like the bolivians do) and the east side. In this zone is were they speak similar to us.
It's really nice to speak more than a language, I'm not a good english-speaker but I hope that you understand me with no problem.

No. My first language is Spanish (as I was born in Colombia), and I can tell when somebody else's Spanish is from another region by their accent. For what I've noticed, however, Uruguayan and Argentinian Spanish aren't so different from each other.

Certainly not; Mexican Spanish has a very distinctive intonation, whilst the pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary of Argentinian and Uruguayan Spanish is quite unique. Cuban and Venezuelan Spanish sound as though the speaker has a hot potato in his mouth, whilst Colombian, Chilean and Peruvian Spanish sound almost European.

I can talk to any spanish speaker despite his country. Everybody understand perfectly spanish from Spain as well. It is just like the english differences between you, UK or Australia.
There are words used in some regions that are not used in others...
Example: Pibe in Argentina, Niño or Pequeño in México.
There are some slangs that are normal words in other countries. Ask México about the meaning of some words often used in Spain.

I could tell Argentinian Spanish

Unless they are from Spain or Mexico, I can't tell. My Spanish speaking experience is mostly from speaking with Mexicans and Spainards, so I can tell when I'm not speaking to one of those two groups.
