These are my 3 suggestions to guarantee you a memorable and exciting visit to Montevideo or Punta del Este:
1. Montevideo is a safe city, although I would recommend you to take care of your personal belongings. Take care if you bring an expensive camara.
2. Major credit cards are accepted, Money exchange shops and ATM are everywhere. Dollars are accepted.
3. Water and food quality have the same standards as USA or Europe.
In restaurants, customers are charged around 3 dollars as "Table Fee".
Restaurants beverages (soft drinks, wine, beer and coffee) are quite expensive. Tipping is optional, usually 10%.
