  • If you come east you can't stop coming to Punta! Enjoy a walk through Gorlero, the pier, its beaches, the restaurants, its imprint and its people, make Punta del Este an ideal destination to enjoy, alone, as a couple or as a family at any time of the year!! Close to Piriapolis, Montevideo, José Ignacio, allows you to walk and base here and get to know these places within walking distance of Punta. Its traditional beaches, La Brava and La Mansa are an icon of the city. Your nights a different evening x discover each time. Without a doubt a destination i come and return to whenever I can! Super recommended!

  • Breath taking sightseeing. If you are in Punta del Este, you must go. It's beautiful to watch the sunset there. On Tuesdays there are a lot of sea lion, because on Tuesday the shops there clean the fish , and they feed the sea lions with it, so it's a good opportunity to them and some gulls too!
