This trip is a 3 night stay in Punta del Este, one of South America's most glamorous beach resorts. The beaches are glorious white sand along this stretch of Uruguay's Riviera coastline where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Rio de la Plata. Elegant seaside homes, a yacht harbor, and expensive hotels and restaurants combine with a hyperactive nightlife to give Punta del Este a feel of exclusivity and glamor.

Day 1-3 Punta del Este

A private transfer takes you from Montevideo to Punta del Este. After checking in to your hotel, your time is free in Punta del Este. Head out to the beach for swimming, surfing, or sun. Punta del Este's main attractions, like Carlos Paez Vilaro's unique Casapueblo, and "La Mano", a sculpture of a buried hand protruding from the sand, draw visitors' attention. Your hotel can arrange excursions (or bike rentals) in and around Punta del Este, including to Isla de Lobos, the world's second-largest southern sea lion colony (estimated at 200,000) and South America's tallest lighthouse. And then of course there is the fine dining and nightlife of Punta del Este.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
