Montevideo in detail

Step into the glitz of the only real metropolis in Uruguay, this fine city has historic charm, picturesque colonial buildings and a huge coastal promenade. Parks like the beautiful Parque Prado with its botanical garden and rose area make for a tranquil afternoon visit, whilst the hustle and bustle of Mercado del Puerto makes for a relaxed outing amongst the urban renewal of the restored 19th century port market.

Do you best unwind at the shops? Montevideo is brilliant for shop-till-you-drop shopping excursions. Choose from modern merchandise to local souvenirs, fashion and jewellery to unusual crafts. The real fun will be had at the vibrant Montevideo markets and street fairs.

Refuel with a hearty meal in the Montevideo restaurants. Forget global cuisine and delight in real Latin American and South American dishes with meat being the main focus. For a quite drink head to the intimate bars or quaint folk-music venues.
