Few cities in the world have an avenue that borders the sea - well the Rio Plata, in this case - in such an elegant enjoyable manner. La Rambla extends for miles, alternating beaches and parks. The people of Montevideo and tourists alike enjoy it...More

Visiten MOntevideo and not visitin the Rambla is a huge mistake. The Rambla is a seaside road that has 16 km or more of uninterrupted walking path. There you can see people running or walking, biking or drinking Mate. Others will go to fish. Others...More

Goes on for miles of lovely sandy beaches - and hardly any people compared to (say) Venice Beach or Santa Monica etc.

La Rambla runs from immediately outside the port and stretches for miles. I'm not sure about sea glass but there are lots of entry points onto the shore and beaches that you explore. Happy travels :-)

Happy to take a taxi or bus . if so what name should I ask the taxi driver to take me to. I believe Rambla de Montevideo is a very big area with lots of...More

From Plaza Independencia you could take a bus to Punta Carretas, let's say to Shopping Punta Carretas, and walk down to Punta Brava. From there you could stroll up the Rambla to Playa Pocitos and onward to Playa Buceo. That being said, I agree with MonteCD that the beach is not really that interesting except perhaps for people watching. So I would not spend too much time there. If I had eight hours in the city. I would walk through Cuidad Vieja into Plaza Independencia and on to 18 de...More

Apartment Rental in Las Ramblas (0 Replies)
We found a very nice Apt for short stay rental in Carrer Nou de la Rambla near Rambla de Caputxins, is this a good, safe location? I've heard of some prostitutes at night in some areas of Las Ramblas. Any suggestions for a good location, near transportation and also safe for walking?
