Montevideo Port Shuttles
MVD airport transfers
A dense but small city adorned with old Spanish streets and mod galleries, Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay, home to several neighborhoods rich with miles of beachfront roads and Art Deco masterpieces. Picking up along the western coast of downtown, The Port of Montevideo is the main arrival point for cruise ships arriving to the city’s intricately designed layout. Utilize a vast public transportation network to get around easier, choosing between the Montevideo Ferry Terminal along the furthest west dock, or choosing from various bus stations along Franklin D. Roosevelt Street. For scenic train rides, continue north on this same road to board a train at Central Station. Private alternatives go a long way for those interested in getting to know the area with more intimacy, not only through small sedans but family-friendly SUVs perfect for arriving to distant locales with peace, meet-and-greets adding to the beauty with drop offs via local personal drivers who know the best plazas and local restaurants, or taxis that make maneuvering through narrow alleys a breeze.
Discover one of many waterside attractions by getting enamored with the port’s close access to Ciudad Vieja, or ‘Old Town’, home to cool exhibits like the unique Museum of Migrations as well as the colorful artwork and culture celebrated at the Pre-Colombian and Indigenous Art Museum. Those looking to compliment the day’s most historic turning points should do so with a bit of entertainment, stepping inside the Solís Theatre for evening shows in a mid 19th-century interior, also considering an afternoon walk across the incredible French-palatial designs of Palacio Taranco, and its attached Museum of Decorative Arts. And finally, a great place to watch people pass at after a long day is Plaza Zabala, located just outside Palacio Taranco and surrounded by an array of fine dining restaurants like the stylish outdoor seating at Jacinto, and the more affordable cottage-style ambiance of El Navegante Restaurant.
