Discover Punta del Este

Punta del Este offers breathtaking natural beauty combined with trendy nightlife as only the hottest spot for the rich and famous in South America can offer. Not surprisingly is called “the Saint-Tropez of South America”. It’s Uruguay’s most precious “gem”, luring privileged visitors from the international jet-set and neighboring countries Brazil and Argentina with its endless beaches, nightlife, casinos, art galleries, and designer shops. All within the safety that sets Uruguay apart in Latin America. Punta del Este is the place where trends end and begin.

We’ll develop on its history, its lifestyle, its real state investments and it’s highlighted like Casapueblo, the Big Hand, the Wavy Bridge, downtown, fashion shops, nightlife, so you can see for yourself how everything was created with a sense of style.

This tour allows you to enjoy the seaside landscapes, learn about history, ecology, demography, and society of the sophisticated touristic resort Punta del Este. All highlights will be covered with your private guide, not only the touristic ones but also the authentic spots that only locals know about.

We will start at the Candelaria Virgin Port where, if we are lucky, the Fur Seals will be giving their welcome show, coping the fresh catch leftovers that the traditional fishermen dump into the sea.

Afterward, we drive around the Old City of Punta, watching the particular architecture of the area. Our first stop will be Punta Salinas the southern point of our country. There we will find The Ajax anchor which reminds the River Plate Battle in the II World War. The Lighthouse, built on 1860, and the Candelaria Parrish facing the ocean in the Peninsula creates one of the most typical postcards of Punta. In our way to the East zone, we will arrive to the iconic Hand Sculpture (or fingers as locals call it).

We move forward to La Barra, surf and art seaside town known by its unique wavy bridge. Then, we will get to the exclusive Bikini beach, one of the top beaches in South America. After this, we will continue our journey through Maldonado city and some residential neighborhoods. Visiting the Ralli Museum, with its sculpture´s patio and surrounded by mansions and green parks is a must.

We finish our tour in the west area of Punta del Este, where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of Gorriti Island, Mansa Beach and Portezuelo bay, from Punta Ballena hill. If art is your passion, don’t miss the Casapueblo Museum and Atelier.
