Choose your hotel close to pocitos. There you can go to the beach, the rambla, plus you have shops, there is a good gym called City Fitness just off of España and eluari. I'd recommend staying there more than the old city side as it's much safer, newer, and beautiful.

clean beaches, no facilities on most of them but still maintained nicely. Ice cream is sold on the beaches and smiling faces all over.

I like recommending this neighborhood to foreign visitors, especially on sunny days, because it has lots of people enjoying the sea view and fresh air, and it's near a lot of shopping places and restaurants. Also, it can be a great place to meet people in a relaxed atmosphere. In summer and spring, and especially on weekends, this place has... More

Really nice to go for a calm walk and enjoy the sunset. Even better if with friends and some mate to drink!

It is a nice beach, no doubt but not more. It is nice as long as you look into the sea and not directly behind you: even if it is not ugly, there are high buildings kind of ruining the beach scenery. Good thing is, it was not crowded (saturday afternoon) as expected and because the montevideo sign is here... More

The pleasant promenade was the highlight for us. We saw some people going in the water, but not sure if it is appropriate for swimming.

Horrible place to live, the noise of the klaxons make your day very upset. Is nice for the restaurants and different shops. Near the 'Rambla' is very good, but, be careful with the cars.
