Some insider tips to getting the most out of your time in Montevideo.
Walk Montevideo’s 25 kilometres of unbroken promenade by the side of the River Plate (known as the rambla). Watch the sun go down around 7pm from Playa Ramirez and try out our secret venue for fish and chips!
Have a huge meaty lunch in the Port Market aka “Disneyland for carnivores”. Secret: Vegetarians should order the roasted stuffed pepper, which is often not on the menu. It comes with melted cheese and olives and ham. To get it without the ham order “Un morrón relleno sin jamón” (oon mo-RON ray-ZHE-no seen ha-MON – I’ve given you the Uruguayshan pronunciation)
Check out what’s on tonight These are my personal recommendations of music, dance, tango, whatever… based on the preferences of the people staying at my guesthouse. As a working musician myself, I tend to select venues completely off the tourist track. Recommendations are usually posted around midday in English, Spanish and/or Portuguese.
