Tacuarembo

(3.7/5 based on 150+ reviews for 9 attractions)
Things to do: museums, historic sites, wildlife areas
Established by presidential decree in 1831, Tacuarembo grew over time into the capital of its eponymous department, largely because of its agricultural industry fed by the Tacuarembo river that flows through the northern part of town. Colonial-era buildings and nearby waterfalls, tributaries, and pools represent the most popular places to visit in Tacuarembo. An itinerary of both cultural and natural exploration may in fact mimic the journey of President Fructuoso Rivera's brother Bernabe Rivera, who set off under his brother's orders to find a fertile land for the new settlement. As the birthplace of tango star Carlos Gardel, the city's restaurants and bars come alive with traditional music and dance come evening, while the well-maintained public parks function as welcoming meeting places and host a range of cultural events throughout the year.

Where to stay in Tacuarembo

A cluster of simple hotels sit on the side streets either side of Domingo Catalina, well-positioned for travelers wishing to see the urban attractions of Tacuarembo and then head out of town to explore the region's hilly landscape. North of the main drag, a handful of boutique hotels enjoy scenic spots in the neighborhood close to the river. Elsewhere, a small number of motels by the side of the local highways provide comfortable rooms and a great deal of accessibility for tourists more interested in using the city as a pit stop on their wider exploration of the department and its rural areas.
