Punta del Este is known as the St. Tropez of Uruguay, thanks to its beautiful beaches, upscale resorts and swanky nightclubs. The Vegas-style Conrad Casino adds to the lively entertainment scene. For a break from surf and sand, saddle up with a local gaucho and ride horseback through the wild plains surrounding the city.

Once the home of celebrated Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro, this eye-catching seaside Mediterranean-style structure is today a modern art museum.
Such a gorgeous white structure. The art work wasn’t to my liking but I enjoyed the short film on the life of the owner. The coffee shop was quite good. This is an amazingly large and interesting building.

A marvellous "domed" bridge made years ago by an engineering genius. Decades later the flow of traffic rendered it to narrow, so the Uruguayan government in a brilliant decision made another twin bridge next to it... exactly the same as the original with its two distinctive humps.

Beautiful park with sculptures by the uruguayan artist Pablo atchugarry and other international artists. It also has a building with rotative Exhibitions and two stages where free events are held.
The Fundación Pablo Atchugarry houses not only the studio of this celebrated Uruguayan sculptor, but also includes a superb installation of contemporary sculpture on the beautiful grounds, a gallery of his own work, and a larger gallery with special Exhibitions of contemporary artists whom he knows. But the special treat was to meet, visit with, and watch the artist himself create his masterpieces in Italian travertine marble.

The Ralli Museums is focused on drawing attention to the works of living Latin-American Artists. Additionally, it exhibits works by European 15th through 18th. Century artists, post-impressionism collections as well as paintings and sculptures representing other artistic trends. As a non-profit, private institution we do not accept donations or subsidies fromo either public or private sources. Nor do we engage in any kind of commercial activity; consequently, no dining facilities or museums shops are available in our premises. We hope you will enjoy this proposal as muchs as we have enjoyed preparing it for you.
This museum is only open at weekends. The building is beautiful, outside and in. There's a quite nice wee sculpture garden/courtyard. Thankfully this was free as it was our third disappointing visit to places of art in Punta del Este. Another 5-10 minute tour of a flat, uninspiring display.

Rambla goes all around the Peninsula I would start at the Hand by the bus station, and Brava beach around the point Great Britain Square, then past the Harbor, on to Mansa Beach, or the reverse. Good views, picture taking, sea lions in the marina.

Definitely not the fancy arboretum of North American standards, but a wonderful example of one man's vision. Quiet, comfortably walkable, and even marked with QR codes on the various plant and tree specimens. Plus, there is no admission charge!

As part of a shore excursion, we took the trip out to the Bodega de Garzan and enjoyed both an olive oil and wine tasting. They have a very good presentation on the olive oil process in a state of the art showroom. They also let you taste their wines and almonds before you jump into a tractor pulled vehicle to see the vineyards and trees
