Cruises to Punta del Este

About Punta del Este

Punta del Este is known for being something of a cosmopolitan hub on Uruguay's southeastern coast and fittingly so. It's home to a number of museums and galleries, upscale shops and boutiques and fine dining restaurants. But the city's beaches and woodlands are also popular among locals as well as tourists. For a change of pace, consider a hike to Arboretum Lussich for great views and a peek at the local wildlife.

Punta del Este Cruise Reviews
Punta del Este looks a bit like Miami at first, but it is very different. It has beautiful beaches, shops, and cafes. The beaches were very crowded, and the weather was pleasantly warm. We enjoyed a nice pizza lunch... Read More
