From the airport to the city

Carrasco airport is outside Montevideo. There are several ways to reach the city from the airport: airport taxis, a transfer service (a private service) and public transportation.

Airport taxi ( It accepts payment by credit card. You can see the price table on the website. For example, it costs around USD 50 (US dollars) to Punta Carretas, which is a district close to the venue and where are most of the hotels we recommended.

Transfer service (a mini-bus run by the same company as the airport taxis). It takes you directly to your accomodation. It costs U$400 (Uruguayan pesos), around USD 10. It accepts payment by credit card. See for more details.

Public transportation

In front of the last stop (at a corner of the shopping mall) there is a taxi stand, where you can take a local taxi (some hotels in Punta Carretas are within walking distance of the shopping mall).

Currency exchange services

There are currency exchange services at the city center and in shopping malls. Many debt collection agencies, such as ABITAB or RedPagos used to change US dollars, argentinian pesos and brazilian reals.

At the airport there are currency exchange services (our recommendation is not to change much there as the exchange rate may not be the best).
