The small district of Maroñas is in the northeastern section of Montevideo City. It has only one main street, Camino Maldonado, with minor road arteries joining with the Avenida General Flores and the Avenida José Belloni.

It is home to the Hipódromo Nacional de Maroñas, where horse races are held every weekend, culminating in the major Gran Premio José Pedro Ramirez championship race.
