We drove around the port of Punta del Este and wound up at the confluence of the Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean. Very nice neighborhoods around there too.

Sea Lions arrive every morning to clean up the scraps from the fishing boats. Some huge specimens stay in the harbor all day and parade for tourists.

Nice visit, good food and good walking distance from other parts of the city. During the summer is hot, take water but you can always buy it around.
