Discover Punta del Este on this trip from Montevideo. We'll take you along Uruguay's glorious Costa de Oro coastline and you'll have the chance to kick back and relax on Playa Mansa.
Punta del Este Day Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Montevideo at 8:15 am and leave the capital behind as we head east. Our journey will take us along the spectacular Costa de Oro coastline until we arrive at the charming resort town of Piriapolis.
First, we'll head to Punta Ballena to visit the famous Casapueblo citadel, which was built by Uruguayan sculptor Carlos Páez Vilaró. He began working on it in 1958 using planks and materials found on the seashore. What started as a wooden shack is today a 13-floor mansion which houses a museum, art gallery, hotel.
The following stop on our excursion is town of Punta del Este, known as the "Monaco of the South". You'll see the magnificent mansions and summer homes which adorn the neighbourhoods of Beverly Hills, El Golf, Cantegril, and San Rafael.
Our tour then continues at Barra de Maldonado, an ancient fishing port named after the river which flows into the Atlantic Ocean here. Afterwards, we'll board a bus and head to Playa Brava and Playa Mansa beaches, the former famous for its finger sculpture emerging from the sand.
We finish the trip in the city centre, where you'll have free time to eat in one of the traditional restaurants or do some shopping in the handicrafts market. Around 4 pm we'll leave Punte del Este and head back to Montevideo.
