Pocitos Tours and Activities

Pocitos
A coastal neighborhood of Montevideo, Pocitos is located along the banks of the Rio de la Plata and is renowned for its beach, Playa Pocitos, and the rambla (boulevard) that borders it. The area features many 10- to 15-story apartment towers that lie along the rambla and feature views of the neighborhood, Rio de la Plata and Playa Pocitos. The rambla features a number of fancy restaurants and trendy shops that attract not only local Uruguayans but also visitors from Argentina and Brazil. 

The water at Playa Pocitos is very salty due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. It is also browner than what you find at other beaches in the area; however, the water is clean and locals do swim there. The fine-sand shore only sees small waves, ideal for visitors with young children.

If you want to get off the rambla and see a bit more in the wealthy barrio of Pocitos, wander up Cavia Street to the older part of the neighborhood where you will find several beautiful mansions. You’ll also encounter other buildings of architectural interest, including Casa Darnaud, the seat of the Russian Embassy, and the Casa Towers, the seat of the Italian Embassy. 

A number of other buildings in the area were declared National Heritage Sites in 1986, including Casa Felipe Yriat, Casa Casabó and Casa Williams. The building of Escuela Brasil was added to the list of National Heritage Sites in 2002. 

Practical Info

Pocitos is located only 10 minutes away from the central part of Montevideo. It borders Parque Rodó and Cordón to the west, Parque Batlle to the north and Punta Carretas to the south.
