“Nice sight if you are there already”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I found Punta del Este a disappointing experience. The city and its attractions are over stated and there isn't much to do or see there. My visit to Playa Brava and the pictures I took from "Los Dedos" probably was the highlight of the entire trip.
I do not recommend the city to anyone who is looking for nice beaches, affordable local food, and good weather.

“an icon that does not deserve its favour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

some time last century latin america scupltors tended to be original. One of them created this giant's hand, emerging from the sand, some 5 meters tall. Gulliver was never my hero.

“Too popular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

It´s Ok to pass by in your car, but man, that place is always crowded even in November. The beach at its side is the place to stay if you like to be surrounded by people and you are staying at the Punta and don´t want to walk too much.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

It's an interesting sculpture and easy to visit as it's right on one of the beaches. If you want a picture of just the fingers without people you'll have to come pretty early as people pretty much sit on it all day.

“Take a quick photo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Very close to the bus terminal in town so you can nip across to take some pictures. Better from afar than close up because a couple of the fingers are peeling and looking a little worse for wear. Put your hand in front of you as you take a picture for an "hand on hand" photo
