Puente Leonel Viera, Maldonado

Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
Providing a free joyride over the creek Maldonado, Puente Leonel Viera seems like it was built simply for fun. Driving across the undulating bridge, which connects the posh beach resort town of La Barra with Punta del Este, may remind you of riding a roller-coaster--especially if you cross it with some speed. For something a little slower-paced here, try the little dock: a great spot for fishing.
