Start your day trip in Montevideo with hotel pickup. Relax on the coastal drive to the lovely resort town of Punta del Este, which features the posh neighborhoods of San Rafael, Cantagril, and Beverly Hills. Your guide points out features of the landscape and shares the history of the region with onboard commentary.

Admire the seaside homes of La Barra del Maldonado, a charming old fishing town. Then continue on to visit two popular beaches. At Playa Brava, snap photos of the must-see sculpture by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal: "La Mano" (The Hand), also known as "Los Dedos" (The Fingers), depicts five human fingers protruding from the sand. On the other side of the peninsula enjoy the ocean views at Playa Mansa, where you have free time for lunch (own expense). 

Afterward, head to Casa Pueblo, a Mediterranean-style villa and art gallery perched on a cliff atop Punta Ballena. Designed by Uruguayan painter and sculpture Carlos Páez Vilaró, the 9-story, whitewashed building includes a museum and gallery (own expense) where you can learn about the life of the artist and the history behind his creation.

After a full day touring Punta del Este, return back to your Montevideo hotel.

Best of Punta del Este
George_Arnold
, Feb 2020
The trip was very interesting, especially the visit to the home of the artist Carlos Valero. The home just flows with no square corners. His art work is very much influenced by Picasso. Punta del Este is very beautiful. There is a huge sculpture of a hand rising out of the sand. The one drawback was the van which picked up the people at the hotels met the tour bus at a certain point. The bus was already full. The only seats left were a few at the back of the bus. One of the couples could no sit together. Since the English speaking group was very small, we got very little attention.

Really good day trip. Our guide (I am sorry have forgetten her name) was fantastic, spoke 3 languages, Portuguese, English and Spanish. She alternated between all three to accomendate all of us. Lots of stops and viewpoints and we had plenty of free time to explore the beaches and towns. Many thanks for the great day.

This is a nice day trip, spaced nicely and with great views of several points between Montevideo and Punta del Este. I wanted more beach time. And beyond that, we were promised “entrance” to two beaches. We only went to one. Also, the tour guide had difficulty climbing stairs - I felt bad for her. Finally, the day doesn’t exactly get off to the right start when the guide asks you if it’s ok not to speak English. I said yes because I understand Spanish relatively well, but if I buy a ticket for a tour in English, I don’t expect to be asked to not take the tour in English.

My guide picked me up exactly on time. She also managed the time perfectly, being able to explain everything but also to leave some time for each of us to enjoy the places. She was very nice. The driver was also very careful during the whole trip. They took us to an excellent place in Punta del este for luch, Napoleon. Amazing food

Pick up at hotel on time. Small group - which we like. Tour guide very good, spoke in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Only downfall was the stop at Piriapolis. Excellent views, can see why we stopped there but the toilet facilities were disgusting. Obviously all tours must stop here, therefore, it would be advisable to ask the Owners of Meridiano to get their conveniences cleaned up. This was the worst toilet facilities on the whole of our South America trip.

I had a day on the trip, it is well organised and you have sufficient time to explore the area. The only issue I had was that the place we were taken for lunch was expensive.

Nice day outside Montevideo to various stops including Punta del Este. Had enough free time in each place to get a flavor for the area. Enjoyed sitting by the ocean and having a drink in one stop after a local lunch. Excellent tour guide, Ferderica, who spoke the 3 languages needed English, Spanish and Portuguese easily that needed on the bus. She had with a big smile all day as she answered all questions. Definitely recommend it and a good value.
