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.
See La Mano, a sculpture of a hand protruding from the sand
Explore the coast on foot or by bike
Partake in Punta del Este's lively nightlife and fine dining
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.
Day 4: Return to Montevideo
After breakfast, a private transfer will take you to Montevideo to either the port (to return to Buenos Aires) or to the airport for an evening flight to your next destination or to return home
Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
