  • Have quiet parts but if you walk through the neighborhood will find some bars with music and crowded, good for a walk and enjoy the beach, which is very cold even in summer.

  • Pocitos beach is worth visiting mainly for those who want to take the famous photo on the marquee Montevideo which is on the same beach. At the time I was very windy what ended up being a little bad because flying a lot of sand, but is worth knowing. In some places have Wi-Fi available and chemical toilets.
