The amazing Riviera which Montevideans love and use for exercise, walking and to spend time drinking “mate” (beverage made from steeping the leaves of the mate bush in hot water) particularly at sunset. Visitors can sunbath at Pocitos’ beach and swim in its fresh waters. Pocitos Hostel is a one minute walk from the beach.

Also Pocitos has the city’s best and most popular pubs, restaurants, grill houses and cafes in which you will have the opportunity of tasting traditional Uruguayan roast beef, exquisite foreign meals or just go out for a few beers, enjoy musical shows and dance till dawn.
