San Jose de Mayo

Little Montevideo

San Jose de Mayo became known as a cultural center during the 19th century. Today, you can see how the town's colonial-influenced architecture, historic theater, monuments, cathedrals, and breezy plazas earned it the nickname "Little Montevideo." The San Jose River flows along the northern reaches of this town of 30,000, with the Uruguayan pampas lying on the opposite side. Add a ranch visit and some light hiking to your itinerary and you'll have plenty of things to do on a quick trip to San Jose de Mayo. Customize your holiday with our Uruguay travel route builder tool to create an adventure that suits you.
