  • Pocitos is the trendy neighbourhood of Montevideo, concentrating many restaurants, cafés and bars. To know the points of interest in Ciudad Vieja, Uber necessary, or rent a bike, which I strongly recommend (Orange bike, in Ciudad Vieja). At the end of Pocitos, this famous sign of Montevideo, to take pictures.

  • Beautiful area to go and enjoy a nice walk, jog or just to sit and enjoy. The views are amazing. Recommended  more »
  • Like the Ocean coast we have in Brazil, who doesn't know he's wrong easy river beach. Clean, safe and very well used by Uruguayans. Nice to see their interaction with lots of dogs who attend this piece of Rambla despite being banned. Even with that infringement, dog poop that way I don't see any! Good for a casual ride with a beautiful view! For more information about Uruguay: visit my Muse blog

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.
