Possibly one of the most undervisited capitals in South America, Montevideo should not be overlooked. This is Uruguay’s capital and largest city. It has an abundance of charm, some beautiful classical architecture and a very relaxed Spanish outlook on life. Stay in one of our Montevideo hostels and take a seemingly endless stroll along the seafront promenade of La Rambla. This is an avenue that goes along the coastline of Montevideo - full of people jogging, walking, biking, fishing or sitting in the sunshine admiring the view. Take in the many tourist attractions and shops on Avenida 18 de Julio or visit the Plaza Independencia in the heart of Montevideo's Ciudad Vieja (old city). You can go shopping in the Punta Carretas Shopping Mall, housed in a former prison it’s the city's largest mall. When you’re hungry don’t miss Mercado del Puerto – this is the place to eat and a meat lover’s dream.
