Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay and its largest city. The city's population is roughly 1.3 million, and it's home to a rich culture and a wide variety of historic architecture. Montevideo is a prime tourist destination, in part because it's located directly across Río de la Plata from Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital city. The city has several boutique hotels.
Cala di Volpe
The Cala di Volpe Boutique Hotel is touted as Montevideo's first boutique hotel. It's on the coast in Punta Carretas, and every room has a view of where the widest river in the world meets the ocean.
