The best tourism office is by Mercado del Puerto, at the corner of Francisco Maciel and Rambla. There’s another one across the Rambla, facing Calle Yacate, with more organized bus services.


Fed Ex is on Calle Juncal in Plaza Independencia, between Sarandí and Buenos Aires. It is open Monday- Friday 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2.-5 p.m. Next door, find Moneygram, which is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. There’s a HSBC ATM along Calle Ituzaingo in Plaza Matriz and a Banco Santader open Monday- Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on 25 de Mayo and Treinta y Tres. Stock up on money before the weekend.


Hospital Maciel is on 25 de Mayo between Francisco Maciel and Guarani. For non-emergencies, plan to get there early and avoid the crowd. There’s one pharmacy at Sarandí 510 and a 24-hour one right outside Plaza Independencia on Avenida 18 de Julio, just before Calle Andes.

Keeping in Touch:

You can find pay phones along PĂ©rez Castellano by SarandĂ­ and along SarandĂ­ in Plaza Matriz. Make photocopies at the Paper Store at SarandĂ­ 514 and send mail near SarandĂ­ 460.
