Carrasco was the first case in Uruguayan history of urban planning and design of an entire neighborhood faced exclusively by private initiative. The main bulwark of that dream was the great Hotel Casino Carrasco, a monumental construction in the style of the luxurious hotels of the Europe of the 900. Low constructions and large green spaces are the main characteristics of this neighborhood.

Avenida Arocena

Es la avenida principal del barrio y junto con sus calles aledañas constituye uno de los paseos comerciales más destacados de la zona, ideal para recorrer a pie. A lo largo de cuatro cuadras, la calle Arocena alberga comercios de todo tipo como restaurantes, heladerías, tiendas de ropa, galerías de compras, supermercados, bancos, entre otros. En la esquina con la rambla se encuentra la majestuosa edificación del histórico Hotel Casino Carrasco.

Rambla and Beach

Given its proximity to the coast and its great dunes, Carrasco was born as a tranquil resort away from the movement of the city. At the moment, the beach and the coastal rambla in front of the Hotel Carrasco are of the most visited places of the neighborhood, mainly during the seasons where the good climate prevails. It is a very busy area for the enjoyment and the realization of sports and outdoor activities. On windy days the beach of Carrasco is one of those preferred by those who practice Kite Surf.


I discovered Montevideo, where almost 300 years from colonial histories to the city of the XXI century. Its memories, music, aromas, architecture, cultural expressions and cosmopolitan tradition are reflected in a colorful sky that dialogues with the water that
Bathes its coast and its bay. It is a city that was built with travelers and visitors, that is why the joy of receiving visits in the Montevideans. Montevideo does not have a favorite season of the year, it is rediscovered in each one: summer, autumn, winter and spring.

It is a city with a young spirit, where throughout the year there are quality theater premieres, it has works of sculptural, mural, architectural art in the more than a thousand squares and squares that make of the public space the privileged place of exchange of the Montevideo, its different expressions but also the link of the city with nature.
