Montevideo is Uruguay’s only large city. It’s about three hours from Colonia del Sacramento by bus. The city lacks Buenos Aires’ monster streets but feels nicer – at least downtown, we didn’t have time for the suburbs. We mostly explored the old town with its grid of quiet and partially pedestrianized streets. The old town doesn’t feel all that old though. And Montevideo sadly lacks Buenos Aires’ trees. Overall it feels like Buenos Aires’ poorer brother.
