Ahhh, Punta del Este is simply beautiful! La Mansa is one my favorite beaches. This is where the Río de la Plata meets the Atlantic Ocean and you can get the most stunning natural pool of Uruguay. It’s ideal for swimming and families with kids. Many cruisers arrive to Punta del Este during this season and the Gorriti island, located in front of La Mansa gets packed. It used to be a great place to enjoy the sea, despite the fact that water around the island is colder than at La Mansa, but recently, with so many boats in the area, the air feels full of fuel. It’s a pity. Anyway, you can still enjoy a marvelous beach without going to the island. Usually people gather here to see the sunset. I particularly like La Mansa during the morning, when there are no crowds.

Punta del Diablo has beautiful rocks shaped by the Atlantic Ocean. You can walk among the millenarian rocks of the Cerro Rivero or at the end of the Plaza de los Pescadores and find interesting shapes which make you admire the power of nature.
Punta del Diablo posee bellísimas rocas azotadas por el océano Atlántico. Uno puede caminar entre las piedras milenarias del cerro Rivero o sobre las de la punta de la Playa de los Pescadores y encontrar bellísimas formas creadas por el impacto del mar. Es realmente para maravillarse por la fuerza de la naturaleza.

Punta del Diablo is definitely a nature-oriented spot. You don’t need trendy clothes there. Just grab your bikinis, some shorts, t-shirts, a pair of jeans and a sweater for the night. You don’t even have to think about shoes. You will be on your bare feet almost all the time. The rest of the time, you’ll be wearing Havaianas or similar. Here is an article (in Spanish) published on El Observador newspaper a few days ago about this little fishing-surfing village.

I have just found an interesting piece of information about a castle in Montevideo. Would you buy a castle if you could afford it? What would you turn it into? A hotel? A museum? Here is the history of the Castillo Soneira (links in Spanish).
