What You Can Expect
Upon arrival in Punta del Este, visit the upscale neighborhoods of Beverly Hills, Cantagril and San Rafael. Admire gorgeous landscapes in each neighborhood as you learn about the history of Punta del Este from your bilingual guide. Then, visit La Barra del Maldonado, a popular old fishing town. With colorful houses and pristine beaches, this is one of Punta del Este's must-see areas.
Next, visit Playa Brava, located on the eastern side of the peninsula. See the beach’s famous 'Fingers' sculpture protruding from the sand and watch surfers out on the waves. Then, head to the other side of the peninsula to see Playa Mansa, another beautiful beach.
After enjoying the views in Playa Mansa, you will have free time for lunch (own expense) and then head to Casa Pueblo with your guide. This famous Mediterranean-style villa and art gallery is located right on the water and was designed by Uruguayan painter and sculpture Carlos Páez Vilaró. Visit the museum and gallery inside the building (own expense) and learn about the life of the famous artist and the history behind this incredible masterpiece.
After a full day in Punta del Este, you'll be taken back to your Montevideo hotel.
