On a bus tour of the town. Saw a wonderful museum that should not be missed. They had a traveling Chagall exhibit there and beautiful paintings.

Punta Del Este is beautiful. The only downside is the tender ride from the ship to the dock. Very reasonable tours are available from the dock area.

A lovely seaside town. We walked along the boardwalk to the hand sculpture on the beach and then walked back along the Main Street. Beach was lovely, nice and clean.

Loved this place and had a great time with a local guide. We were even treated to a floor show over lunch followed by our dancing the conga. What a great introduction to the place.

Walked about the peninsular area near the port. No real sights to see but a very pleasant town. The sea lions near the port were very entertaining.

Went to an olive producing farm (Lotte 8). Took about an hour to get there by coach but saw loads of scenic Uruguay which surprisingly looked a lot like Devon/UK. Interesting and informative host and good talk about olive producing. Provided wine/bread/olive oil tasting and we walked round the olive trees on our own after asking the owner if we could! Punta del Este seemed like a nice place (we didn't have time to see it on this tour) but while we waited to board the tender boat, we saw lots of sealions who had come for a free feed at the local fish shop. They were amazing and huge! I don't think HAL are going there anymore which is a shame but glad I went when I could. Usual good weather, although was a bit British-like at the olive farm (drizzly and cold!!) Read Less

Did a bike tour booked on our own, since we'd walked some of the city before. Took cab out to Casapueblo which was well worth the trip to explore this Gaudi style hotel and work room with great views.

Beach resort with a 40 minute tender ride. Little of interest for me. Really wanted to visit Montevideo, but that port has apparently been switched with this one.

This was one of my favorite stops and such a beautiful place. We booked a city-tour right off the ship for $30, and we literally saw it all. This is the way to go, but you can book on the ship for $79.
