    The market is a permanent fair located within a building on the famous Plaza Cagancha, a few blocks away from the Plaza Independence. Free admission, but I confess that I thought a program half get tourist and with prices a little exaggerated. When I was in Uruguay the first time, I didn't think all that expensive. Still, it's worth a visit to get to know the local crafts, since it's so close to other attractions. There are pieces of leather, gauchos artifacts, paintings, sculptures, souvenirs and other items. The payment is centralized in a cash box or card. You can access wi-fi in the environment also. How is close to various attractions (and the Plaza Cagancha itself is quite nice), it's worth a stop by, take a few photos and panning some souvenir of the city, before moving to other points of interest.

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.
