Punta Del Este



Often compared to Saint Tropez, this small town on a narrow peninsula comes alive each high season, as jet setters, A-listers, glitterati and frolicking fashion models descend on its white and golden sand beaches (depending what side you’re on) and scenic shorelines.

For only two weeks each January, this normally quiet town bursts at the seams with revelers seeking to rub elbows with celebutantes at all-night parties. The rest of the year, it’s an idyllic seaside hamlet to kick back and unwind.

Whether you’re looking to live the high life during high season or chill out and discover blissful relaxation the other 50 weeks of the year, our two favorite area accommodations provide the perfect backdrop as Punta’s beachy vibe washes over you. The aptly named Grand Hotel offers a perfect beachfront combination of modern design and world-class service sure to please even the most discerning of travelers, while the adults only (16+) Serena Hotel, tucked away in a 19th century flour mill, offers first class service close enough to Punta yet away from it all.

There is no shortage of cultural, gastronomy and adventure activities in Punta del Este. Here, guests will find shopping at prestigious locales like Avenida Italia Design District, the Calle 20 fashion district and the Punta del Este Shopping Mall, as well as dining, nightlife, antiquing, galleries, theatres and even music festivals in summer. If the adventure sports in the great outdoors are more your speed, try your hand at fishing, sailing, surfing, polo, golf, tennis and more.

Punta del Este is accessible via a less than two hour drive from Montevideo or the relatively new Capitan de Corbeta Carlos A. Curbelo International Airport, which is only about a 10-minute drive from Punta. We recommend at least three nights in the area to discover its pristine beaches, electric nightlife and surrounding towns like La Barra and Punta Ballena.

Punta del Este tours can be customized for your personal interests. Have questions about this destination, tours here or hotels? Speak with our Uruguay destination specialists at (800) 772-9188.
