Montevideo Guide

Montevideo Ferry Port

Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay and is situated on the south coast of the country, typically used as the gateway to Argentina. The crossing to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, lasts between two and five hours, and runs several times per week. It showcases Montevideo’s prominence in Uruguay when around half of the country’s population reside in its capital city - though it’s easy to see why. The city centre is alive with an eclectic mix of cool bars, live music and a bohemian art scene, creating an image that Montevideo is one of South America’s coolest cities. The Solis Theatre and the Museum of Fine Arts provide the cultural edge that attracts so many young artists to the city, and impressive buildings like the Palacio Salvo and Palacio Taranco are what keeps them there. Away from the city centre, the beaches are usually propped with tourists basking in the glorious weather or locals having a game of beach football or volleyball. The evening is when the beaches really come alive, with discos and parties at beach clubs lasting till the early hours of the morning. For those looking to escape the vibrancy of the shorelines, the southeast of the city is where the shopping malls are found, offering authentic clothes and materials at relatively cheap prices. The size of the city is fairly small and the public transport is very efficient, so travel around Montevideo is fairly simple. The only problem some may have is the language barrier; most locals will only speak Spanish so it is advisable to learn some basics or carry a translation book whilst out and about. Alternatively, taxis are reasonably priced for quick and easy transport.
