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.
