Punta del este
The unspoilt Uruguayan peninsula of Punta del Este is all paradisiacal oceanic beaches, exotic sophistication, beautiful people and an ardent night scene. There are many travel sights, including the amazing restaurants, which draw tourists over from neighbouring Argentina.
Many of these tourists come from the other side of the Rio de la Plata from Argentina to get some nice fun in the sun on a beach away from the brown waters of the Rio de la Plata.
Jose Ignacio is a small and lovely village on the southern coast of Uruguay, 40km east of Punta del Este. Not long ago, this was a sleepy fishing outpost, a refuge for loners and the occasional celebrity seeking to escape the paparazzi in nearby Punta del Este, a glamorous playground often compared to St.-Tropez. But in the last five years, José Ignacio has evolved into arguably the chicest spot in Latin America, favoured by jet-setters from around the world!
Punta del Este has become the most beautiful modern city of the South Atlantic Coast. This magical place puts together nature and entertainment infrastructure in a unique manner; first class services and tourism diversity make Punta del Este the best resort city.
Enjoy beautiful sunsets in the port of Punta del Este, La Barra or Jose Ignacio before making the most of the wonderful nightlife- some of the liveliest night life on the continent which will keep you dancing until dawn!
Try the great classic of Uruguayan cuisine: Chivito. This dish is the pride of Uruguayan people, not only in the country but all around the world.
