Montevideo on Christmas day

by debbieO

Is there anything open on Christmas day in Montevideo?
We are family of 3, arriving Montevideo on 12/25 by cruise ship.
Will there be tour operator or taxi at cruise port?
Shall I prearrange a tour? Anybody can recommend a tour guide?

by globetrott

take a look at my Montevideo-page, I came by cruiseship as well (Celebrity Infinity) and all that you will see on this page I have done by walking for about 3 hours from the ship. I always felt safe, no bad people in the street, not even around the port.
I think we had a shuttlebus to a shoppingcentre in the centre of town, but if you take that you miss some of the great sceneries and lovely old houses.

Travel Tips for Montevideo

Montevideo Tip

by nomadic

The fondest memory for me was on the day we left Montevideo for America. Our taxi driver, after finding out we were soccer fans, told us that he used to play for the Miami team in the USA and his uncle used to play for the national soccer team of Uruguay. This is a country of about 3 million people, and in the past 50 years they have won 3 world cup soccer championships! He was so excited about our appreciation for soccer he took a detour and showed us the national soccer stadium. From his 'special connections' we were able to get inside the stadium and have a grand view of the grounds.

Admiral Graf Spee

by Bjorgvin

The Battle of the River Plate: The German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee was sighted on Dec. 13, 1939, off the Río de la Plata estuary by a British search party. The British ships attacked (there were three of them), but they had to withdraw damaged. Graf Spee made off in the direction of Montevideo, a neutral port, where its commander obtained permission to stay for four days to repair damage. When the ship put to sea again the captain had his crew scuttle their ship because he believed he couldn’t escape from the superior force he thought awaited him. In fact the British reinforcements had not arrived, except one ship. This happened 4 miles out of Montevideo, where thousands of spectators watched from the waterfront. – For more information: Museo Naval, Rambla Charles de Gaulle.

Yemanjá

by andal13

Uruguay is a lay country, and a lot of people do not practice any religion; the majority of those who do have a religion are Catholic, but during the last years an Afro-Brasilian religion (Umbanda) has won many adepts. One of the most important rituals of this religion is the Yemanjá celebration; Yemanjá is the godess of the sea, and on February 2nd her adepts go to the cost to give her offerings, thank her for her help or ask her petitions.
This celebration attracts a lot of people, believers and just watchers.
I am not a believer, but I feel this celebration is very touching.

Uruguay es un país laico, y mucha gente no practica ninguna religión; la mayoría de aquellos que sí tienen religión son católicos, pero durante los últimos años una religión afro-brasileña (Umbanda) ha ganado numerosos adeptos. Uno de los ritos más importantes de esta religión es la fiesta de Yemanjá; Yemanjá es la diosa del mar, y los 2 de febrero sus adeptos se dirigen a la costa a llevarle ofrendas, agradecerle o hacerle peticiones.
Esta celebración convoca a mucha gente, creyentes o simples observadores.
Yo no soy creyente, pero siento que esta celebración es muy emotiva.

Escollera Sarandi

by Chiil

Nice little area of the bay where you have a nice view of the city. Here you can see people fishing.

People where getting pissed at the guy casting the net because that scares all the fishes away.

the London-Paris-building

by globetrott

Edificio del London Paris / the London-Paris-building was built in 1908 and it is another one of the many interesting buildings with great architecture along avenida 18 de Julio, at the crossing with Rio Negro street.
