Looking for a destination that combines the serenity of the beach with the excitement of cosmopolitan life? Then Punta del Este, in Uruguay is your next destination.



Rio de Plata

Only 90 minutes away from Montevideo, Punta del Este stood out as a great destination many years ago. Here, celebrities and travelers seeking tranquility, beautiful beaches, and an exclusive atmosphere come to vacation.

Although it has an International Airport, some travelers prefer crossing Rio de la Plata from Argentina on a ship. This journey takes you to Montevideo and once you’re there you can go to Punta del Este.

This destination is geographically a peninsula, with urbanization and a modern layout. It has large avenues, large green areas, and beaches for every taste.

At this point along the Uruguayan coast, the Ri­o de la Plata has already turned into a majestic sea of deep blue, with golden sands and varied waves on its different beaches.

La Mansa is the longest beach, with the calmest waves. A bit further north, on the contrary, La Brava lives up to its name with its big waves. Just beyond, La Barra is the meeting place for young people and celebrities.

Punta Ballena and José Ignacio have their own charm and they’re very calm. On every one of these beaches, there are lodges, bars, and popular and local restaurants to enjoy the mythical night.
