Getting to Montevideo

By air

Montevideo’s Carrasco international airport is served by a number of airlines that link it, via nonstop flights, to other large South American cities, as well as European and North American destinations. There are also frequent connections between Montevideo and Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital, that offers a wider range of flights to destinations across the globe.

From Carrasco airport you may use a personal car service (known as Remise locally; usually more economical) or by taxi (taxis stop at the exit of the terminal, on the ground level).

By land

Participants from neighbouring countries may also choose to travel to Montevideo by land. Additional information will be available through these pages soon.
