Casapueblo is about a 20 minute drive from the "downtown" area of Punta, but worth the trip. It is a truly amazing experience to see the beautiful building perched on the hillside, filled with interesting artwork, and offering a fantastic view. I recommend you head over there a couple hours before sunset on a clear day, to have time to... More

Don't miss this place. We had a quiet afternoon in the bar watching the sunset and enjoying a few drinks. Not the cheapest place but so beautiful. Take the museum tour and see the story behind the owner, designer and builder of the place Carlos Paez Vilaro. You can stay here as well, we stayed in a much less exciting... More

An unexpected visit on the way to Punta Del Este. Enchanting visionary salute to the sun. The 30 min video with subtitles the artist Carlos Paez Vilario tells his story and his vision, his love of the sun and the sea. The impressive building he built by hand, nooks and crannies filled with art. Parings, drawings, potter and sculpture. He... More

The building is beautiful. Use time wisely to walk around and take pictures in the balconies. Pics are forbidden inside. If you want to spend some money, buy one copy of the portraits available. Books are expensive, though. If you're going from May to October, take a jacket, because the wind is freezing there.

The museum is enjoyable if you like modern art and modern architecture. The building is extremely unique. Make sure to read Wikipedia about the artist, his home and his life...it is remarkable Order a hot beverage in the cafe and enjoy the stunning sunset as well as the beautiful poem. The poem is in Spanish. A translation on paper into... More

We went around 6pm. Sunset was at 730pm. A beautiful poem is read as the sun sets. Grad a cappuccino for 120$ and head outside. It was cold...13.5 Celsius or 56 Fahrenheit. Bundle up and watch. 1 hr to see all the art is enough time. Definitely worth the trip. Entrance fee was 220$ pp.

O por do sol mais bonito que já vi, indescritível. Você se sente como em um navio cruzeiro. The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. The feelings in that place was amazing, it is like a boat in the ocean. Indescribable!

It is just an antonishing place that you must visit in Uruguai. Casa Pueblo is a rather balanced mix of art and architecture in a unique handmade building in Punta Ballena. There you have the most perfect sunset in Uruguai to please your senses. I do recommend it.

Unfortunately, we arrived here after-hours so we didn't actually get to see the artwork or even the hotel rooms, but they were nice enough to let us walk around and take some pictures at dusk, which actually came out beautifully! We then ate dinner at the restaurant and that was a very memorable meal. I would recommend! (Went 2013).
