Maldonado

One of the larger cities in the country, Maldonado draws visitors primarily interested in the city's coastline and the wider region's beaches. With an economy largely oriented toward the seaside, many areas of the city have a resort-like feel. That's not to say there aren't some highlights around the town to explore: walking tours of Maldonado reveal a number of attractive colonial-era buildings and pleasant plazas. However, the bulk of vacations in Maldonado center on the beachfront hotels and the sandy swathes lining the shore. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Maldonado and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Maldonado

The main area of interest when visiting Maldonado remains the Atlantic beachfront. Here, find well-maintained resort-style hotels with long lists of amenities, along with newly built high-rise options boasting extensive sea views. Move just a few streets back from the water to find attractive boutique hotels and the occasional guesthouse. If you're willing to forego the beach, have a look in the Centro district: this inland neighborhood offers a good set of atmospheric, colonial-era hotels, along with simple guesthouses on its many side streets.
