Its a nice place, with a interesting architecture and a beautiful view of sunset, worth it. I recommend you rent a car and go there by yourself, its more cool and its almost the same price of those tourism groups, and of course you can use the car to know another places all along the day.

This was the mos spectacular sunset I´ve seen, much better than the one in Santorini, which is famous. The sun was setting while we listened to a record of Vilaro´s poem made when he lived on this house.

Your trip to Punta del Este isn't complete without experiencing Casapueblo. We had no idea what to expect and didn't plan enough time for this gem. Allow time, and go to the bar or restaurant to absorb the surroundings.

This is a cool place - you can easily take a bus there and back - there is a mile long walk up to to Casa Pueblo from where the bus drops you off. It's a pretty spectacular walk, with the homes of the wealthy lining both sides, and ocean views from each direction as well. Just the walk is... More

if you are planning to visit Punta del Este, a stop at Punta Ballena is worth the time... Few places are so inspiring, you can sense Carlos Paez Vilaro's art in every little detail of this wonderful location... his art is fantastic...

The museum is not that good or special, but the house itself and the location are really beautiful. It's easy to go there if you are coming by car from Montevideo.

we visited the museum only as the Hotel was being renovated at the time. The museum is very interesting and certainly well worth a visit.
