Trip Planner: South America / Uruguay / Maldonado Department / Maldonado / La Barra / Puente Leonel Viera
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Puente Leonel Viera and other Maldonado attractions using our handy Maldonado travel route planner.
