I´m new to the forum and have looked for any threads about Uruguay but its definately one of the less popular destinations in SA! I´ve been here for a few weeks and I´ll soon be in Montevideo. Anybody there at the moment? Anybody know good places to stay there in the centre of things? I´ll be here for a while as I´m studying guitar but I´ll be moving on to Buenos Aires. I´d really appreciate any info. Thanks for the help,
Whatever you do, go to the best restaurant that i have been to on my travels calle don pepperoni or something like that, it has a black front and is quite big, its near the main plaza. Have the brochette be pollo or chorizo which is on the skewer, huge and truely AMAZING!!
Cant reccommend the hostel form LP as it was rubbish.
Have fun, and happy eating!!
Well, I'm planning to go there, but that won't be until February, March or so next year. Have to see Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina first...
Though I really think Uruguay is the place to be, especially after doing some really tough trekking down in Patagonia in January! Everything I've heard about the country seems good, it's supposed to be really cheap, beautiful, with nice restaurants, pretty beaches and good surf. Maybe you could tell me all if that's true?
