La escollera, Montevideo

1.8
Fishing enthusiasts will love La escollera, a favorite area of the port where locals cluster for a catch. Alternatively, watch the ships coming in and out of the harbor, or just take a long walk down this peaceful shore with its panoramic sea views. The neighborhood close to the harbor holds significant historical and colonial interest, with a checkered past in African slavery.

  • In the Plaza Independencia you cross the door of the Citadel and take the pedestrian Sarandi, and at the end you'll come across the breakwater. Is very used by Montevideo in search of a good fishing. I don't consider it a tourist attraction.

  • A beautiful spot on the banks Rio de plata, where you can appreciate the constant traginar of all ships that come and go from the port of Montevideo to very few meters. From the bottom, you can see the entire Bay and the view of the cerro de Montevideo, which gives the name to the city. MONTE VI from EEST to West.

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.
