Bicycle rentals

by virtual786

I´m wondering if there is a place that rents bicycles for a day or 2 in the Pocitos section of Montevideo?

Hi! above is a good recommendation for Pocitos.
I stayed in Pocitos, great location!
The Albergue Pocitos (see link below) lists "Bicycle Rental" in its services offered from hostel.
I also include a link to map of Montevideo, where you can see the barrio Pocitos by scrolling to the right a bit. (Hope map links work!)

Thanks. I´m going to wait until I get to Montevideo to call , but I´m wondering if they rent bicycles to people who aren´t staying at the hostel?

I'm sure the Albergue Pocitos will gladly direct you to the nearest Rent-a-bike in Pocitos, even if you're not staying there -- and I saw a few in pedmar's link to you.
I stayed in Argentina 4 months, in hostels before getting my place. In Buenos Aires, first hostel had bikes on the spot but none in good working order, or all rented, so they gave me the name of the Bike Rental nearby.
This place had great bikes and service, it was much less of a hassle than dealing with the busy hostel attendants. I returned there every time I wanted a bike.

I can tell that Albergue Pocitos owners/founders (2 young guys who love travel) would be most obliging. Everyone in travellers' places in Uruguay and Argentina was extremely helpful in arranging such things. Muy simpatico!

I had great fun riding a bike all over Buenos Aires!

Enjoy Montevideo!

There is a bicycle rental shop on Perez Castellanos at 25 de Mayo, two blocks up from the Mercado del Puerto. It is only a block away from the “D” bus line and within a couple of blocks of other Pocitos bus lines.

Their email address is BikeMontevideo@gmail.com. The owner, Fernando, speaks Spanish and English. Phone - 099 187 377

Travel Tips for Montevideo

New Years

by oceania26

I was there on the 29th of December, last working day before New Year Eve and people were throwing around their old calendar pages from that year. All over the city you see calendar pages flying around. When I first saw this, I thought someone accidentally lost their calendar but I soon found that was their way of celebrating...not too sure who cleans it up after the fact.

Another little tradition they have is throwing water from office and balconies on passing cars...or so I thought. I was busy watching some ladies throw water on cars below and was thinking they wouldn't possibly do that to unassuming pedestrians below, especially strangers. Just as I was turning to walk I got totally drenched! I was not too happy about that considering I was wearing white pants, my camera (in my bag) and my money belt which contained my passport and important papers...and no clean change of clothes.

El Futbol

by Bjorgvin

El Futbol is as popular in Uruguay as in other countries in Latin America. And yes, Uruguay has won the World Cup twice! First in 1930 when they hosted it in Uruguay, and the second time was in 1950 when they beat Brazil in Brazil. That defeat was so incredible that some Brazilians committed suicide afterwards. Now the best players go to Europe to make their fortune. But the national team has been doing rather well lately, and played in the World Cup 2002.

Football

by Shakermaker

Football (soccer for American's) is a big pasion in Uruguay. The most popular team is Pe?arol and the second one is Nacional. These two teams compete with 12 others in the Uruguay League and they have 90% of the fans. Three or four times per year Pe?arol plays with Nacional, this game is called "clasico" and is the most interesting game of the year. If you happen to be in Uruguay when this match takes place you should go and see it. You will not only learn a little bit about football (if you are not into the sport) but you will also see how fans behave here and find out that football is felt in a different way if compred to european countries. It's a really great experience that you should not pass by.

Flowers, apples and vineyards

by andal13

Montevideo city is surrounded by fields... There are several farms, greenhouses, vineyards, fruit-trees plantations, that feed the Montevideans. Some of these places can be visited.

Montevideo es una ciudad rodeada de campo... Hay numerosas granjas, invernáculos, viñedos, plantaciones de frutales, que alimentan a los montevideanos. Algunos de estos sitios pueden visitarse.

BUQUEBUS

by mtncorg

A three-hour ride from the Darsena Norte terminal in BsAs brings you here to the heart of Montevideo. It is cheaper to take the one-hour boat to Colonia and then connect by bus (same amount of time however), but there is something much more magical about approaching or leaving Montevideo by water. Watch as you leave the brown waters around BsAs and you will see them take on the more steel grey of the open sea as you get close to Montevideo. Magic? You can fly, but why when you can buquebus it?

It is good to be an hour early for all departures - whether to and fro Montevideo, BsAs or Colonia as you have to do pass immigration before boarding the boat.

An added treat for those of you sailors - the Uruguayan fleet is docked opposite the Buquebus terminal.
