Ah, Montevideo! No, it’s not the name of a questionable movie rental shop from the ’90s where you can find original VHS copies of Point Break. Montevideo is the capital city of Uruguay and the dream destination you didn’t even know you needed to visit. You’ll find plenty of sun, shopping and entertainment near your Montevideo accommodation here, from the historic Ciudad Viejo to the restaurants and craft stalls at Mercado del Puerto. This is where you can scarf down a chivito—the city’s filling signature sandwich—then dig your toes in the sand at popular Pocitos Beach.
Things to Do in Montevideo
Get ready, get set and get relaxed with a leisurely stroll on The Rambla. A 22-km long avenue along the coastline, this beautiful spot south of the bay is popular for fishing, cycling and people-watching. Soaking up the lovely waterway scenery will put you in a good mood for a visit to the Museo del Carnaval and shopping at the Plaza de Independencia, both near several excellent Montevideo hotels. The colourful neighbourhood of Barrio Reus is worth all the gorgeous photos you’ll take there. And if you’re in the mood for even more local adventure, take in a football match at the Nacional.
Getting in & Around Montevideo
Wing your way to Carrasco International Airport (MVD). From there, it’s easy to find transport to your accommodation in Montevideo. Buses travel from the airport to downtown regularly.
