Montevideo

 

 

An eclectic and vibrant metropolis widely noted for its high quality of life, thriving tech community and entrepreneurial spirit, Montevideo is Uruguay’s capital and home to almost half the country’s population.

Here, it’s easy to see why Uruguay’s history of quirky liberalism is recognized throughout the world. Although the city and its surrounding suburbs continue to grow in both area and popularity, the rich 18th century Spanish Colonial architecture, tree-lined plazas and casual ambiance of this coastal urban retreat remain a lure to international travelers.

The sheer volume of hotels in Montevideo can be overwhelming to new visitors, and more are being constructed all the time, but we’ve narrowed the field to a few of our favorites. Looking for the perfect blend of modern and traditional in a lovingly restored 18th century palace? Alma Historica Boutique Hotel, mere steps from Zabala Square, is magical and romantic. Prefer to be surrounded by amazing works of art and Uruguayan handicraft? Oliva Luxury Hotel was designed by renowned interior designer Hassen Balut and is packed with unique works of art. Want to partake in Uruguay’s burgeoning wine culture? My Suites Hotel celebrates all things vino. And, if beachfront elegance is calling your name, the Sofitel Montevideo Casino Carrasco & Spa is the pinnacle of style with a lobby that opens directly onto the beach.

Situated across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires and along the southern coast of Uruguay, Montevideo offers a number of water-based activities to adventurous visitors. There also is a strong soccer culture for sports fanatics, as the very first FIFA World Cup was hosted here. For culture lovers, the arts scene is thriving with numerous theaters, galleries, tango bars and more. And, of course, all the shopping, dining and nightlife travelers would expect of a capital city. Just don’t get so busy you forget to visit the Colonial Ciudad Vieja.

Montevideo is a major entry point into Uruguay for air traffic, as well as the country’s main port, so the city is very easily accessible. We recommend a minimum two-night stay to sample the richness of this dynamic urban oasis.

Montevideo tours can be customized for your personal interests. Have questions about this destination, tours here or hotels? Speak with our Uruguay destination specialists at (800) 772-9188.
