“Great beach promenade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Wide, sloping beach. Can be very windy so be prepared. Kite surfers and fitness enthusiasts will love it.

“Lifeblood of the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Montevideo embraces the Rio de la Plata by showcasing its shoreline with many kilometers of hike and bike trail, known as the Ramblas. We strolled along several different spots at different times of day, and were impressed by the way that the people of the city use this trail--walking, running, biking, rollerblading; playing sports or sunning on the parks alongside it, working out on the equipment located at intervals, or grabbing a bite to eat or something to drink at one of the small cafes. We saw a nice cross-section of the populace enjoying this picturesque riverfront walk. It might be possible to make it from one end to the other via bike, but you won't be able to walk it in a day. But in the right weather, you won't mind--it's a great place to people-watch while you get a little cardio.

“It is really nice to sit there an relax, drink mate.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

I liked that was really near the city, just accross the street. It is sunny until sunset, that occures behind the buildings, and it gets windy at that hour, so you may want to take a little sweater or something to cover. The best part is that hour, you can drink mate with friends. And then simply walk around the Rambla.

“Huge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I am not so sure about how many km are la Rambla, think 20. Full of people fishing, running, chatting and enjoying the life. I liked just walk there chatting with my partner for hours. Nice landscape and atmosphere. Not miss it

“Promenade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I'm not sure if the Rambla qualifies as an attraction because I go there to walk every single day. What it is is a sidewalk around the entire city along the Rio de la Plata coast. It's lovely to chill and work out and there are a few nice restaurants along the walk. There's also a holocaust memorial on the section near to Parque Rodo.
