Punta del Este Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Punta del Este?
Meaning the ‘point of the east’ this tiny city is a well-developed holiday resort whose influence stretches out along the east coast. With an actual year round population of under ten thousand, the city comes alive in the summer months as the number of people triples. There are great beaches around the city and a recently built marina that services the super yachts from Uruguay’s elite.

How do I get Into Punta del Este?
With two flights to and from Buenos Aires, the city of Punta del Este is reasonably well served. There are no direct flights into the airport from overseas and travellers from anywhere other than Brazil must make a connection before continuing. Flights from the UK to Buenos Aires are quite frequent so you won’t find getting to Punta del Este very difficult.

What is There to see or do in the City?
The main attraction is the beach and there are many of them stretched along the coast. Be careful where you swim for the further east you go, the more treacherous the waters can be. The Casa Puebla is a fascinating place to visit. It’s a holiday resort but set in a living museum created by the famed Uruguayan architect Paez-Vilaro. The Lussich Arboretum, around which the city formed is still going today and is a beautiful place to visit, especially on hot days.
