With a rich cultural scene and plenty of developed beaches, Montevideo vacations appeal to a growing number of visitors from around the world.
Step out of Montevideo with an excursion to Pizzorno Family Estates in Canelones--about 44 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Plaza Independencia, get a sense of history and politics at Palacio Legislativo, go for a walk through Rambla de Montevideo, and wander the streets of Pocitos.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Montevideo trip simple and quick.

Hartford, USA to Montevideo is an approximately 19.5- hour combination of car and flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Hartford to Montevideo due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Hartford in January: high temperatures in Montevideo hover around 82°F and lows are around 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) to allow enough time to take a bus to Maldonado.

Kick off your visit on the 10th (Fri): make a trip to Puerto de Punta del Este, make a trip to The Fingers of Punta del Este, snap pictures at Puente Leonel Viera, then explore the world behind art at Museo – Taller de Casapueblo, and finally kick back and relax at Playa Punta Ballena. Keep things going the next day: get great views at Mirador Punta Ballena, then kick back and relax at Playa Montoya, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Mansa, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Pinares.
