Uruguay’s bustling capital is an energetic, vibrant city with a cityscape that veers from Spanish colonial to art deco and on to sparkling high rises. With a strong cultural heart, Montevideo’s streets ring with the staccato beat that drifts out of cosy tango clubs and people dance in its beautiful plazas.
Spend the day on one of the city’s beaches, and by night grab a seat at an outdoor plaza cafe, listen to the music and watch the locals as they dance the night away.
