Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is the most populated city of the country, with approximately two million inhabitants. A beautiful bay, shaped by the coasts of the Río de la Plata, gives rise to one of the most important ports in Latin America, which is also one of the bases of the economy of the city. The port is also a frequent stop for numerous cruise ships arriving in Uruguay. The Río de la Plata mixes with the Atlantic Ocean and these waters bathe the shores of Montevideo. With twenty-two kilometers of coast, numerous beaches are enjoyed by natives and visitors.
In addition to the beaches, visitors in Montevideo also have different options to spend their leisure time. It is not a mountainous region. However, small hills are present. Among these hills, the Montevideo Hill is an interesting point of the city. With a height of one hundred thirty-five meters, from its top it is possible to have a perfect view of the bay. Different touristic circuits are also available for those who want to know the most attractive places that Montevideo has to offer.
The architectonic structure of the city can be divided in what is known as the Old City, where tourists will find colonial-style buildings, and the Modern City, the contemporary counterpart of the community. Thus, tourists get an idea of the historical transition lived by the city. As in any large city, the cultural activity is also an attraction for tourists. Theatres, cinemas, and museums are available for those interested in a quiet time in Montevideo. Guided visits to the Old City, the Tango Tour, and the circuit to the rural part of Montevideo are among the most popular circuits chosen by tourist every year.
Accommodation in Montevideo is diverse. However, hostels in Montevideo are the choice for tourists seeking to enjoy Montevideo at a low budget. A large number of Montevideo hostels are available, located either in the Old City or in the modern area of Montevideo. As a general rule, they offer free breakfast, city maps, and internet service. Laundry service may also be available. Private or shared rooms with private or shared bathrooms, TV, library, barbecue area, luggage room, and locker service are the main features of hostels in Montevideo. In most of them it is possible to obtain touristic information. Therefore, Montevideo hostels are an excellent choice for visitors looking for a pleasant atmosphere while having a great time in Montevideo.

Montevideo Travel Tips & Suggestions
Montevideo does not allow smoking in enclosed spaces -- all stores, restaurants, cafes, and buses. Gaelic Cafe on Rincon/Ciudadela has a good upstairs for a late afternoon coffee. Parque Laroche by park Rodo and the park at Vazquez Ledesma have weekend markets.
A beautiful city! It was a great surprise to know Montevideo and I recommend everybody to do the same. You won't regret it.
