  • I loved the place, as my hotel was near everyday I see the dogs playing on the lawn and admire the view and the diversity of birds. Beautiful and safe. Walking down the ramblas has a bridge and the naval museum.

  • Montevideo has several points which allow you to sit, rest and relax. The "Puerto Buceo" is another place you can relax watching the boats leaving, returning or anchored. You can also admire the movement at the port while walking along the rambla. Between the river and the rambla, there is a large lawn, a small strip of sand and stones. The port is located between Pocitos Beach and Playa Buceo.
