InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Montevideo

Hello to all Americans in Montevideo! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Montevideo? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Montevideo which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Montevideo is a vibrant place and rich in culture. The capital of Uruguay is a port city known for its rich history and culture, lively arts and music scene, international flavor, and much more! With the available taxis, bus network, and suburban rail lines, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Pocitos, Punta Carretas, or Carrasco, for example, which are up to an hour commute away from Montevideo’s center.

Although Montevideo has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Montevideo, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
