The only guides to Montevideo & Uruguay, written by an author resident in Uruguay. Mentioned in the New York Times, BBC, National Geographic, Le Figaro, Decanter and more.
And indispensable for getting the most out of Uruguay as a visitor or resident.
Are they up to date?
With the end of the pandemic in sight, the author reviewed the guides in October 2021. The beauty of buying a guidebook by a local.
The very few updates required to the Uruguay guide are collected here along with a few new recommendations.
The Montevideo guide came out just before the pandemic (the audiobook in the middle of 2020!—yes, we’re in it for the long-haul). We are just finalising our revision but are happy to tell you that pretty much all are still working.
The Uruguay travel guides with passion and soul
The Guru’Guay Guides are not endless dry lists. The author selects only the very best or the most curious places and then goes into serious detail—so you can make leisure and travel decisions with confidence. The guides describe each destination, where to stay and eat, things to do, how to get there and features important ‘what you should know’ advisories. So easy to read, readers often devour a Guru’Guay guide in one sitting.
Other travel guide writers use Guru’Guay guides too
