More Information about Montevideo
Montevideo Airport (MVD)
Flights to Montevideo will disembark at Carrasco International Airport.
Carrasco/General Cesáreo L. Berisso International Airport (MVD) is the largest airport in Uruguay. A In 2009, a new passenger terminal was unveiled, tripling the capacity of the original terminal, which had been in operation since 1947. The visually pleasing new terminal, designed by Uruguayan born architect Rafael Viñoly, contains almost 8,000 square meters of glass, flooding the space with natural light.
When a Uruguayan welcomes you with a call for a "mate", don't be alarmed, "el mate" is the ubiquitous traditional drink, derived from the herb yerba. Mate is found everywhere in Montevideo, the waterfront capital of Uruguay, established in 1726. A hub of commerce and higher education, Montevideo's architecture is reflective of its Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and British immigrants and it enjoys a humid, subtropical climate.
Carnivores and sweet tooths are well-catered for (meat dishes are a specialty and desserts are plentiful) but what is there apart from drinking mate and eating up a storm? Here's a quick guide:
- Ciudad Vieja – Montevideo's old town
- Barrio Reus – a small neighbourhood with charming coulorful houses
- The Rambla – a 22-kilometre waterfront boardwalk flanking the city, ideal for people-watching
- Mercado de los Artesanos – a market on the corner of Paraguay and Colonia streets where local artists sell leather, paper, woodwork and textiles
