Arrival

Once at the airport you can hire a private transfer, take a taxi or rent a car from some of the local car rental agencies. A taxi or remise will cost between 45 – 60 USD (1.200 – 1.600 Pesos Uruguayos, UYU). You can pay the driver directly in Pesos Uruguayos or at the transport desk of your choice with a credit card.

From there you have easy access to the center of Montevideo as well as the east coast with direct buses traveling in both directions.

The currency exchange “Global Exchange” — located in the Arrivals Hall — exchanges currencies 24 hrs. from Mondays to Saturdays 8am to 8pm. Sundays 9 AM to 4 PM.

Entry & Exit Formalities

Uruguay requires passports of all foreigners, except those from neighbouring countries (who need only national identification cards). For an official list of current visa requirements by nationality, check https://migracion.minterior.gub.uy/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1280


Money and Costs

ATMs are widespread and credit cards are widely accepted. It is still recommendable to bring some Uruguayan pesos. Tipping: In restaurants, leave 10% of the bill. In taxis, round up the fare a few pesos.


Climate

The climate in Uruguay is mild and humid, with homogeneous rainfall throughout the year. Seasonal variations are pronounced. November is almost the end of Spring, usually damp, almost ward already (18 °C daily mean). The absence of mountains and other weather barriers makes all locations vulnerable to high winds and rapid changes in weather.
