Montevideo is the gem of Uruguay’s culture and nightlife. The largest city in the country, it boasts the perfect seaside location for summer getaways, and gorgeous coastal conditions in the winter. Eclectic by nature and diverse to a fault, Uruguay’s blend of people, music, language, and cuisine drive it to be one of South America’s most rocking locales.
Known mostly for its heavily used industrial port, Montevideo was once used as a fortress for the Spanish Empire until the 18th century. Montevideo is home to half the country’s population, and for good reason, it’s hard not to be amazed at the gorgeous banks of Rio de la Plata, or the influx of Spanish, Portuguese, French, and British energy. All of this culture is evident through the city, in its art, its establishments, and its breathtaking architecture.
The discerning traveller will be able to uncover the subtle magic of the city, and appreciate the architecture ranging from art deco to colonial. Take a stroll down La Rambla from Old City to Carrasco to truly complete your travel to Montevideo.
Summer in Montevideo lasts between the months of December and March. Temperatures rise up to the 20’s and some rain and thunderstorms roll in during the hottest evenings. Winter time is from June to August, with temperatures around 15 degrees keeping things cool and dry for the most part during the day and a bit chillier in the evenings.
The best time to plan flights to Montevideo is undoubtedly the month of May. The heat is still in the air, but it isn’t too hot to get outside in the afternoon. Comfortable conditions make sightseeing easy and bearable, and rainfall keeps to a minimum.
The perfect time to book flights to Montevideo is in the spring – September to November, when the temperatures are mild and dry. Sunny days prevail, and rainfall is quite rare this time of year, so pack a light jacket and layers, and you’ll be set for the day.
There’s really no bad time to come here, since the seasonal weather brings balancing conditions, but less people visit in March and April, when rainfall is at its pinnacle. If you can withstand the rain, you’ll probably find a cheap flight to Montevideo during the off-season – just make sure to pack an umbrella.
You can easily rent a car, but Montevideo is easy to get around by bus or on foot. You can walk to most of the tourist attractions, which are clearly marked, and the buses also cover the tourist area. Taxis can be difficult to hail during rush hour.
For a flight to Montevideo, you will be flying into Carrasco. Montevideo Carrasco (MVD) is just 10.0 mi from the centre of the city.
