    What to Expect
    Start your day trip in Montevideo with hotel pickup. Relax on the approximate 2-hour 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, you'll return back to your Montevideo hotel.

    If you like peace and quiet and don’t care if it is cold and hardly anybody there, then you will love it. It is winter and therefore nobody is sunbathing at the beaches just walking their rambla and enjoying the gazebo at their port. I...More

    It was a beautiful journey, the bus was very confortable. Two suggestions: it last too long, they told it will be a 10 hours and it took 12 hours! the guide was not very good there was some lack of relevant information.

    It's a magical place to visit. More than the architecture the place offer you a rich cultural experience! Make sure you'll have enough time to take a coffee while you enjoy the stunning view on the balconies.
