La Rambla

From La Rambla
<<previous next>>
One of the perks of living in Montevideo, Uruguay, definitely is the walk by the coast, and the beaches on it, which is known here as La Rambla de Montevideo(don't ask me why).

La Rambla goes from Ciudad Vieja to Carrasco in Montevideo, the most popular part of it is the Pocitos's neigborhood one, La Rambla de Pocitos.

It's the favorite place for montevideans to chill out, have a beer, or mate with bizcochos along with friends, or family, specially in spring and summer time. It's also a great place for doing some sports, like: jogging, biking, fishing, beach volley, beach football, or just walk.

Some say is what Buenos Aires lacks, and porteños envy the most of montevideans, but I'm not sure about that. I'll just leave you with a photo album, that I hope explains better what the Rambla is all about...

By the way, merry xmas!

I love your blog, it's very interesting. Montevideo is not the nicest place in Uruguay though; we have just got back from a few days in Uruguay, Montevideo has some nice bits but it's like all big cities and the beach is not the best. We stayed at a really beautiful spot in Lavelleja, near Minas, much prettier than Montevideo.

I've heard that every Montevidean who visits Chicago loves it, and I think I understand why. The Rambla closely resembles Chicago's Lake Shore Drive.

I love the rambla. I am from Pocitos...well,I was when I lived in Montevideo.

I like it in the morning when there are the locals, I hate it in the evenings when all dirty people from the slums arrive..especially in summer.

Hey Argentinean,

Hi, how is it called that spot in Lavalleja? Maybe it's worth a post :)

thanks for your feedback,

Great blog gabo_uy!

I am a Uruguayan living in USA for 9 years now. Your blog is more informative than many “official” sources, such as tourist books or so. Great job!

Let me tell you something else about “La Rambla”. If you ask 100 people from Montevideo living abroad what do they miss the most about Uruguay, no less than 80 will tell you “La Rambla”.

I couldnt agree more with the last comment! I got back yesterday to the feeezing cold of NYC and I always miss (besides my family) is walking on the Rambla in Pocitos.

The place near Minas was at km127 on the ruta north from Montevideo. We also went to Villa Serrana (you do mention these places in a blog entry). It was beautiful countryside, and we saw lots of birds, including hummingbirds, parakeets and some rhea.The last line of my first entry should say we are not Argentinean!
