“Picturesque little place”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Nicely situated small harbour with picturesque fishing boats, shops selling fish or knick-knacks of various kinds. The sea lions that you read about are in view only when the fishermen have come in and are cleaning their catch - during our visit this was not the case because it was a Sunday; we only saw a single animal swimming in the distance. Oh well.

“Where the "Jet Set" stays but don't want anyone to know the secret”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Punta is the place to go to if you want to feel as if you are part of the "rich and famous". Top notch entertainment, beautiful people amazing beaches and restaurants. It's the Monte Carlo of South America during the summer moths and deserted during the winter.
