We have never been to Montevideo, Uruguay before.
I was wondering would you recommend doing here for the day??
If you have been to Montevideo, what did you do there for the day??
Does the cruise ships dock near the city? or do we dock a long way from it?
Any ideas / suggestions are very welcome
PS: I read somewhere there on cruise critic is / was a Hop on / hop off bus??, has anyone been on it?? and does anyone know the price?
As an option, I'd highly recommend getting out in the countryside for the day. We went to Estancia La Rabida and really enjoyed it. Besides experiencing a working, family-owned ranch, the grilled lunch they put out was simply amazing. It was a long, leisurely affair with delicious appetizers, huge offerings of various meats, salads, dessert, and Uruguayan wines. They turn the barns into 'restaurants' wth everyone sitting on straw bales, and then later in the day we were entertained by gauchos, dancers, and singers and some rather interesting 'hands-on' activities. South America is definitely one of the most memorable places we've been to.
