Directions for your Montevideo Airport transfer

Montevideo Airport is located approximately 25 km away from Montevideo city centre, Ciudad Vieja. A drive into the city should take around 35 minutes by car, depending on traffic. 

After settling into your vehicle, your driver will exit the airport complex and take the 1st exit at the first roundabout onto Ruta 101 heading to Montevideo. They’ll then take the ramp onto IB/Ruta 101 – Capitan Juan Antonia Artigas and after approximately 1 km they’ll take the 3rd exit at the roundabout onto Av. de la Americas, continuing onto Av. Italia. After a hundred metres or so you’ll take the exit toward Rambla and merge onto Paul Harris/Vicente Muniz Arroyo. At the roundabout, you’ll take the 4th exit and continue for several km before turning right onto Bv. Espana and then left onto Av. Sarmiento. From there, your driver will turn right onto Rbla. Pdte. Wilson and continue straight onto Rbla Republica Argentina. You’ll continue along this road for 2 km or so before your driver turns right onto Misiones which will lead you into the city centre. From there, your driver will use local roads to take you to your hotel or accommodation.
