Montevideo lead.jpg

Just a few hours by high speed hydrofoil takes you from the centre of Buenos Aires to the heart of Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, an eclectic mix of fine architecture, cultural heritage and great beaches.

Wander along the unique Rambla – a very pleasant, wide boulevard with beaches, along the river estuary – soaking up the sun and enjoying the 18th century architecture. Head to the fascinating gaucho museum, explore galleries and shops with local crafts and get acquainted with one of Uruguay’s best kept secrets: the excellent Tannat wines. Not for the faint-hearted (or indeed for vegetarians) are Uruguay’s most famous gourmet treats, be it a steak the size of your head in Montevideo’s Mercado del Puerto or one of the ultimate street snacks, a chivito, made with various meats, egg, cheese, steak, a few cursory vegetables – probably followed by a two hour siesta afterwards if you manage to finish it.
