This resort is located on the Ruta Interbalnearia, 18 kilometres (11 mi) east of the centre of Montevideo. It borders the resorts Parque Carrasco to the southwest and San José de Carrasco to the northeast.
Originally a seaside resort, now it is a residential neighbourhood and resort of Ciudad de la Costa. It was created in 1946 on 57 hectares, which were owned by the Sociedad Anónima Hipotecaria de Adquisiciones, Negocios, Inversiones y Locaciones. Between 1985 and 1996 its population increased 70%.
As an extension of the Rambla of Montevideo, Route 10, known here as the "Rambla Costanera", crosses the stream Arroyo Carrasco and runs along the seafront of Ciudad de la Costa. The sister lake of the Lago Calcagno divides the resort from Carrasco Airport the other side of the lake and Route 101. Shangrila is divided by the long Avenida Luis Giannattasio, along which are concentrated the main commercial and service activities of the place. This avenue divides most of the resort from the lake to the north.
