Air Travel

Uruguay's principal airport, Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco (MVD), is 24 km (15 miles) east of Montevideo. A taxi to downtown costs about 550 pesos; plan on 620 pesos to reach the Ciudad Vieja. A city bus (marked Ciudadela) is cheap—about 26 pesos—but the drawback is that it takes an hour to get downtown.
