Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is perpetually overshadowed by its more glamorous neighbors, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Sure, millions of people love BA and Rio, but if your stress has reached unhealthy levels, they’re not the best cities in which to unwind. If you’re planning a dream trip to South America, be sure to fit Montevideo into your itinerary — preferably in the middle of all that tango-dancing, bullfight-riding, favela-touring, and bargain shopping. Montevideo, Uruguay offers the perfect respite to recover from a bout of anxiety.
The Rambla stretches along a dozen miles of the Montevideo’s coastline. But where are all the crowds?
Not quite The Caribbean, but Montevideo’s beaches are stunningly pristine considering the number of people who live here.
Solo moment anyone?
Make new friends who won’t judge you by your suitcase brand or your credit card limit.
Feel your anxiety drift into the ocean breeze…
The relative chaos of Rio and Buenos Aires will feel thousands of miles away.
Find new ways to meditate — and forget your Xanax.
Well, I am much more relaxed reading this and looking at the pics! Thanks for sharing; always enjoyable to read your posts!
I would visit Rio and BA out of a sense of obligation, but it sounds like Montevideo matches my style a bit more. Thanks!
I love Montevideo. I am going to spend a couple of days there to relax from stressful Buenos Aires. I also write about travels in my blog so want to take pictures and write short stories about the city. Any place you can recommend for relaxing?
Yes. I want to be there.
I so want to go there!
