“A small Peninsula, with great atmosphere.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

Punta del Este is considered one of the best seaside resorts in the world. Tourism runs from December through March..daysa re in the 80's, nights much lower temperatures. On the Eastern side of the Peninsula, the sea is calm ..and peaceful. On the Western side it is the opposite,crashing waves, high surface. A wonderful tangy breeze usually blows all day.Aristotle Onassis built his first mansion there..That is saying something..! Argentine's have week-end homes there, where they visit all through the year, as it is a 20 minute plane ride across gthe RIver Plate.I have lived there full-time, it could'nt be a better place to be..

“Great restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

The port in Punta del Este is full of private boats, many of which are very expensive, and features a large number of high-end restaurants and bars. There is a small dock and gazebo that you can walk on to get a view of the harbor, but the main attraction is really the restuarants and laid-back afternoon feel near the water.

“Best summer place in Uruguay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

Amazing spot during the Uruguayan Summer (December to March). During December and January is crowded and party oriented. Still it is great for families and group of friend during the whole summer period. Many cultural activities and great restaurants.

“and you thought S. Francisco was great??”

sea wolves play at 10 feet from where you are... fishermen sell the catch of the day... or you can even eat there what was swimming some minutes ago!
