Yin and yang. Old and new. That is Montevideo in a nutshell. The modern part of the city is alive with buzzing energy, and when you need some peace and quiet, get lost in the city’s huge green parks at Parque Pardo and Parque Rodo. Travel back in time in the old part of the city where you can see colonial buildings. But don’t let the vintage façade fool you because it is more hip than it seems. There are many restaurants to satisfy your taste buds and lively clubs to light up your night. Oh, did we mention the city is overlooking the ocean?
