General opinion: I appreciate the bus service. It is very good. The buses are new, clean, on time. The roads and streets in general are excellent. I feel safe in Montevideo. I have been here for 2 1/2 years and have not had any acquaintance with crime. Uruguay is getting more expensive. When I came prices were lower. Now I have to be more careful with my food budget especially.

General opinion:  Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay, and today is home to 1.35 million people, over a third of the entire Uruguayan population. Originally founded in 1726, the city was heavily influenced by Britain from the early 19th century to the early 20th century, who used it as a means of circumventing commercial control by Argentina and Brazil. Between 1838 and 1851, Argentina’s dictator of the time, Juan Manuel de Rosas, repeatedly besieged the city with the aim of winning control of the region.
Situated on the northern mouth of the Plata River estuary, Montevideo is ... More Uruguay’s largest port. A period of economic prosperity in the late 19th century drew many immigrants from Europe, however military dictatorship in the mid-20th century led to an economic decline, the effects of which may still be seen today. During this period, many rural poor flooded the city, however this trend has slowed as the country has entered a period of economic recovery, with stronger regional trade ties leading to renewed agricultural development.
