Where to stay in Fray Bentos

Traditionally an industrial center rather than a touristic one, Fray Bentos has a limited range of accommodations. Head to the water's edge and you'll find a couple of nice hotels; move farther back from it and you'll stumble across a few simple guesthouses. This will no doubt change in coming years, with the listing of the old industrial factory as a World Heritage Site. Until then, consider looking in the neighboring towns of Las Canas and Mercedes for a wider selection of lodgings.
