Nice place to take a photo of the sign and beach, but not much else apart from that. It's a stopover in your day trip to Montevideo

Big letters. Most of the time there is a big crowd around it trying to take photos. So you may have to wait for your photo with no one else in it.

We went early in the morning and no one was there so we were able to take our time for photo opportunity. Would be way better if each letter was in a different colour like most other city name signs

Tourist buses always stop at the Montevideo sign, just at the edge of Pocitos, so that people can climb up and take photos. But while the sign is white most of the year, there have been some interesting changes worth watching for. When we visited...More

A popular spot BUT lots of friendly touristas that will be happy to get you in that iconic photograph. Yes it’s cheesy. Yes it’s busy. But it’s fun fun fun.
