The Tour

The Bus Route

Beautiful full-day tour to get to know one of the four most important seaside resorts in the world: Punta del Este. In this trip we will visit Piriapolis and drive up San Antonio hill, we will see Punta Ballena and Casapueblo, the Brava and Mansa beaches in the peninsula of Punta del Este and much more.

1st Stop

Carrasco

Departing toward the east of the country is the neighbourhood of Carrasco that boasts a historical seaside resort with its Normans chalets and the imposing hotel Casino   Carrasco built in 1921 and recently remodelled to be part of the garden district.

2nd Stop

Piriàpolis

A city founded by the mystical and visionary entrepreneur Francisco Piria. From the bottom of San Antonio hill extends a beautiful beach lined by the seafront named “Rambla de los Argentinos” with hotels full of history, such as the “Gran Argentino” Hotel or the Colón Hotel, and many symbols left behind by its creator to those who would know to interpret them.

3rd Stop

Punta Ballena and Casa Pueblo

In Punta Ballena, Carlos Páez Vilaro,  an exceptional Uruguayan artist built his own house over a 50-year-period. This peculiar house,  called Casapueblo, was built with his own hands and with the help of fishermen from the area.  Today, this irregular and whimsical white mass that overlooks the ocean is the home of the artist,  an atelier and museum. Something not to miss!.

4th Stop

Punta del Este neighbourghs

Among pine forests and eucalyptus, you’ll find the residential neighbourhoods of Punta del Este: Pinares, Las Delicias, San Rafael, Rincón del Indio and the striking Beverly Hills with its Californian style all located in an environment of peace and safety. Historic and modern five-star hotels will impress you with their English style and  canopies giving them the same design you can see in cities like Las Vegas.

5th Stop

Downtown

It was a Chilean sculptor who gave form to the world’s most famous hand or fingers, the sculpture’s actual name. It stands as a symbol of the interaction of man and nature. Gorlero Avenue invites you to discover the local charms and handicrafts. Artigas square, with its characteristic palm trees, only a few steps from the seafront area and port called “Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria”. In the oldest part of the city rises a church with the same name across from the weather station and the lighthouse.

6th Stop

La barra

There is no bridge as fun as the one that takes us to this picturesque town, Leonel Viera Bridge. La Barra de Maldonado is known for its busy nightlife but during the day it sits as a picturesque town created by fishermen and those who love the wilderness and laid-back life. We find cabins with thatched roofs, fishermen on the Maldonado waterway, surfers in the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean, all in the same place.
