El Prado, Montevideo

4.0
#2 of 12 in Parks in Montevideo
The city's largest public park, El Prado serves as a quiet green space and gathering place away from the bustle of the capital. Spread out over 106 hectares (262 acres), the park plays home to more than 1,000 species of plants, several gardens, and a range of pergolas, monuments, statues, and other landmarks. Go for a stroll through its expansive grounds, following the bank of the Miquelete Creek surrounded by palm trees and other native foliage. Bring a picnic to enjoy a meal in the great outdoors, or simply kick back and watch locals go by.

    The prado is a typical and historic district. It has beautiful places to walk and enjoy the outdoors. It is not for tourists that come to visit Montevideo with little time.

    One of the most traditional neighborhoods of Montevideo, several charming houses, the streets are super trees. There's the parque Rodo to practice sports and rest. The Botanical Garden is small, but worth a visit. The House of the President is there, too, saw the first lady coming in your home when I passed in front of the residence. The hotel's restaurant Don Andres is a great choice for dinner.

    the meadow is green in the middle of the grey, beautiful city, surrounded by nature. Nice to take a walk or simply relax

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
