The City

No one likes a crowd

Montevideo is chill, cosy, nostalgic, alternative, undiscovered, not overcrowded—and has the best quality of life in Latin America.

Soak up some street art, go to a poetry reading, and sip some mate while watching the sunset on the beach.

Come visit Montevideo before the secret is out!

HP Montevideo Housing


Hello, beautiful rooms. Natural light in bright spaces. Kitchens for cooking. Fast wifi. Unpack and settle in while living in the same building as your HP friends.

We will be in the hip and modern Palermo area. Close to the boardwalk, the beach, the park, the coworking space, and the best food in town, you’ll love your home here.



Time to talk about some perks of where we will work:

  1. The wifi is fast and reliable. No worries here.
  2. It’s within a 15-minute walk to our housing. Buh-bye, wasted commute time.
  3. You don’t have to hear Sharon talk about her cats!

We’ve got everything you need to be productive: places for calls, nice chairs and desks, a well lit space, and more.

Increase your creativity, focus, and energy by working in a fresh environment with new people in Montevideo.

Trip Highlights


empty beach paradises

Between sprawling beaches in the city and remote paradisiacal beaches we can travel to like party central Punta del Este or the hippie natural reserve of Cabo Polonio, you might just get sick of beautiful beaches. Daily sunset watching required.


Walk those streets

Each neighborhood has a different outdoor market with food, antiques, and nostalgic treasures for you to discover. Street art crops up where you least expect it and the majestic architecture is bound to keep you snapping photos.


finally master spanish

If you're anything like us, you've wanted to do this for awhile. Learn Spanish where the locals are nice enough to explain it to you. Improve your Spanish to not only gain a life skill but immediately elevate your Tinder game while in Montevideo.


drink like a local

Wonder why everyone carries an oddly-shaped cup with a metal straw? Welcome to the world of mate. You'll quickly grow to love it. More of a wine fan? The best Uruguayan wines are not exported so you'll only be able to taste them here.


run along the boardwalk

Why sweat inside when you can run along the world's longest boardwalk? The 22-km path is often full of people taking advantage of the local nature. You'll often see small groups exercising or doing yoga in grass patches along the way.


weed. yep, i said it.

Whether you are a fan or not, marijuana is a part of the culture. Uruguay was the first country to legalize recreational use 5 years ago. People register at the post office to grow their own or buy some from the pharmacy—and are reallllly chill.

Our troubleshooting, rose-drinking, karaoke-singing, and all-round kick-ass superhero facilitators are destined to become your new BFFs.

Sara Magnabosco

Head of Admissions | Trip Facilitator

Sara, from Italy, joined Hacker Paradise as Trip Facilitator after spending four years in rainy Belgium running one of the most active coworking spaces in Europe. With a background in Sociology, she loves being surrounded by people and help them to connect and create meaningful relationships.

Tea drinker by day, she never refuses a beer at night.

Vanessa Famighetti

Trip Facilitator

Vanessa has lived on three continents, visited over 35 countries, and worked creating custom travel excursions and personally running rough-and-tumble overland trips (driving an actual bus, ya’ll).

She’s a daily do-er of yoga (the sweatier the better), bonafide pickle fan, and lover of all things beachy. If you want to catch some epic sunsets, Vanessa is the one to follow!

kitti Borissza

Trip Facilitator

Kitti is an idealist keen to help make the world a better place. She cofounded a freelancer collective and two social enterprises, executed go-to-market strategies for startups, and traveled as a digital marketing consultant before joining Hacker Paradise.

Her best days are spent barefoot next to a bonfire.

Will Newhart

Trip facilitator

Will joined HP after working in a myriad of fields, including healthcare, romance fiction, journalism, hospitality, and film. His safe space is Google Sheets, but he’s always ready to make you smile.

He lives to dance and eat the local breads. If you ever need a sober buddy or want to bust out a spontaneous trek, Will is your guy!
