Balneario Zagarzazu

Reviewed By TravellerRoy - Buenos Aires

This is a large expanse of sandy beach along the river close to the town of Carmelo, Uruguay. It is very popular with the locals in summertime and is a pleasant walk during the cooler winter months. There is a large park with family picnic areas attached to the beach alongside the river inlet leading to and from Carmelo.

Calera de las huerfanas

Estancia de Belén,ruinas jesuíticas,siglo XVIII ,capilla en estado original mas Antigua del Uruguay

Reviewed By Latitude33 - Uruguay

It was pouring rain when I took the narrow road that led 4 kms from the main freeway on to the Calera de las Huerfanas..had no idea of how the place looked like, it is an area that has pretty well kept Jesuit church structure and some other buildings from those times, as well as the ovens to prepare lime powder for construction. The grounds are very well kept, and there is signage posted by each ruin to inform of it, but only in Spanish. I wasn't able to get a tour as it was raining and there didn't seem to be anyone around, but still thought it was very interesting to see this in the middle of nowhere. The birdlife in the area was abundant too!

Puente Giratorio

Reviewed By Jarko2015 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This is the major crossing across the river that leads from Colonia into Carmelo. It's not exactly the world's biggest or attractive bridge, but it gives good views of the river itself and you can walk under the bridge along the embankment for a nice stroll.

I guess it must be much nicer and lively in the summertime, full of vessels, but anyhow it is still a nice place to stroll around, even on a vehicle.

Muy buena calidad de comida y bebidas.
El lugar muy ameno, llegamos sin reserva a almorzar.
La atención dejo mucho que desear. Muy amables pero ineficientes. Tardaron una hora y media en traer la comida.
