Hi all, i'm heading to Uruguay and I'll be spending a few days in Montevideo.
I've heard it's quite dangerous? I've heard stories drom other travellers I've met while backpacking through South America that they have been mugged at knifepoint or been victims of other crimes. Is this something I should be aware of or what is the safety situation for a traveller backpacking alone in this city?
Will I be safe? Is Montevideo particularly bad or is this like any other city in the world?
