no hablo espanol

by bkq

Is it hard to be a tourist in Uruguay without being able to speak Spanish? Are there any places in Montevideo, Colonia del Sacramento or other cities where one would be likely to meet English-speaking travelers and locals?

Re: no hablo espanol

by johngayton

You've made a good start already - "no hablo espanol". You don't have to learn a lot of another language in order to enjoy a place - a few basics go a long way and locals will love you for having learnt a little. You'll get a better experience just smiling and saying "no hablo espanol" and then asking for what you want with a "por favor" at the end.

Sorry i missed the last bit - then you'll find the locals who have a little English will feel comfortable trying that out on you and you can end up having great conversations as you teach other a little of your respective languages.

Re: Pocitos is the best neighborhood (barrio) bet for you...

by akken

There are two choices that are always available. Glen R.'s Uruguay Expat lunches every Sunday from noon to satiety at Fellini's Ristobarreto, Benito Blanco and Jose Marti just completed 5 years of uninterrupted meetings in English.
The other certainty is Feligreta (www dot feligreta dot com), a tea/coffee/art gallery combo on Avenida Brasil at Jose Ellauri. We have bilingual service every day we are open (closed Mondays.)
Tuesdays and Thursdays are English Days, on which English is the default language. We normally have a mix of folks from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and,of course, Uruguay.
So, you won't be alone in Uruguay. Come see us,
Ken

Travel Tips for Montevideo

Chilly evenings

by durvende

If there's one thing I've learnt by living in this city it's that no matter how hot it is you should always have a swater with you. This is cause even if it's over 30 °C the temperatures always drop when the evening comes, specially if you are near the sea.

Drinking Mate & Having Nice Mate cups!

by Hexepatty

It would seem if I didn't mention Mate, I'd easily be lying about visiting Uruguay. Drinking Mate is a past-time hobby more popular, dare I say, than Football?! I mean EVERYONE has their personal, cute mate holder, w/ Silver Straw... and they even carry a nice thermos of sorts for backups.

I didn't try mate. Primary reason for that is that it is an herbal tea known to create gastro-havoc if you have GI problems. And I do, badly... so as Much as I would have enjoyed trying this -- apparently bitter hot herb tea beverage -- I had to pass.

Many places in Montevideo will sell you a wide range of Mate Cups / Holders and thermoses. Some get VERY fancy, but the basic mate Cup is constructed out of a gourd. So it is Biodegradable!

Very interesting!

José Artigas

by Bjorgvin

The revolutionary leader and soldier José Gervasio Artigas (1764-1850) is generally regarded as the father of Uruguayan independence. But that goal was not reached until several years after he had been forced into exile. As a young man he was a cowboy (gaucho), but soon joined the Spanish military forces. Later he turned against the Spanish and fought for independence of the colonies. In 1814 a civil war broke out in the Río de la Plata region, and the Portuguese invaded what is now Uruguay. Artigas resisted for three years. From 1820 he lived in exile in Paraguay, but the independence of his native Uruguay was finally achieved in 1828. PLAZA DE LA INDEPENDENCIA (Independence Square) in downtown Montevideo is the main square of the capital. In the middle of the square is the equestrian statue of Artigas and underneath it his mausoleum.

Uruguay Club

by globetrott

Uruguay Club is the name of this interesting building next to the cathedral Iglesia Matriz. The building dates back to the year 1885 and all you can see of it as a tourist is the beautiful ornate facade. There are several cafes with terraces at "Plaza Constitucion", from where you will be able to see this lovely building.
Dont miss this building, when you are at "Plaza Constitucion" ,
the adress of Urugua Club is :
Sarandi 584

Painting

by andal13

Uruguayan painting can be seen in several Art Museums; I talked about MuseoTorres García on "Must see activities", because it is a very important museum situated on the most touristic place (Old City). But "off the beaten path" I want to recommend two Art Museums:
Museo de Artes Plásticas y Visuales: Herrera y Reissig and T. Giribaldi (Parque Rodó)
Museo Blanes: Millán 4015 (a beautiful ancient mansion in Prado)

La pintura uruguaya puede disfrutarse en varios museos de plástica; hablé acerca del MuseoTorres García en "Must see activities", poruqe es un museo muy importante ubicado en el lugar de mayor atractivo turístico, la Ciudad Vieja. Pero fuera del trillo turístico quiero recomendar dos museos de arte:
Museo de Artes Plásticas y Visuales: Herrera y Reissig y T. Giribaldi (Parque Rodó)
Museo Blanes: Millán 4015 (una hermosa mansión antigua en el Prado).
