Restaurants: La Huella (Jose Ignacio, best lunch experience in the area), Marismo (Jose Ignacio), Art Hotel Las Cumbres (Punta Ballena inland), Bugalow Suiza (Punta del Este), L'Auberge for waffles at tea time, San Vicente (between La Barra and Jose Ignacio, Beretto (sp) (Punta del Este), La Posta del Congrejo (hotel in La Barra).

Shopping: Internationaldesinger shops a block off Gorlero in the peninsula, many others in the peninsula.

Entertainment: Shows at the Conrad and La Mantra, caberet-style singers at Medio y Medio in Punta Ballena area.

Beaches: Best is Jose Ignacio at La Huella (see above), followed by Bikini in Manantiales; all of La Mansa and much of La Brava in Punta itself are just fine.

Other suggestion: Late tea time at Art Hotel Las Cumbres to watch the sunset.

You have to rent a car - there's just no other way to see Punta del Este with any kind of efficiency.

If is tea time , consider Las Vertientes also, but you must have a car to go into the countryside
