#44 of 68 in Sightseeing in Montevideo
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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.
