Punta del Este
Skyline by night
No Uruguay visit is complete without having seen Punta del Este – well at least, so I have been told by many people… so last weekend I finally headed this direction full of expectations.
Punta del Este is known for it's beaches, yachts, beautiful people and a vibrant night scene. It is expensive, usually about 50% more expensive than other areas of Uruguay, if not more. It's been called the Monaco of South America. Tourist season varies from totally deserted in the winter to very very crowded in the summer, unusual for a city this size.
So since we are in the middle of autumn over here - I did not find this exciting resort, but instead I found a laid back and mundane beach side town. I was very lucky with the weather including a swim in the sea. I explored the town by bike and enjoyed a relaxed and easy weekend.
