Pocitos Uruguay is a massive high rise area fronting the Rio Plata.
It is a location that many foreigners own apartments, as well the local citizens. It is considered to be an upmarket location. There is a small beach which is very popular in Summer..It is located out side of Montevideo City centre and is well serviced by the Montevideo transit bus system. Pocitos is worth a visit when visiting Montevideo. If driving take the coastal road( Rambla) to Pocitos. It will be obvious when you are there by the high rise apartment blocks lining the road.

If you go to Montevideo, it's better to stay in this area instead of downtown, it's much safer and nicer, there are many great hotels and you can walk around, eat at the many restaurants in the area, do exercise at the rambla or take a taxi to the port, to Carrasco or the downtown area. You 'll be right in the middle.

The area is lively and has what I consider to be the best beach area. However, the people that live there are quite uppity so act accordingly. Many activities and sports on this beach on the summer season. Lots of people and lots of fun.

I used to live in Pocitos many years ago, as a child. Now that I return from time to time to Montevideo, I like to stretch my legs around Pocitos, which remains a nice neighborhood although it has grown fast and not always in the best direction. Nice coffee shops, bookstores, restaurants and walks. As for the beach, you can look at it or walk around, but I don’t advice you to get into the water. There are many other nice beaches to swim.
