Tour Details

Take this Uruguay Punta del Este guided bicycle tour and you'll agree: few places can boast the beautyónatural and man-madeóthat Punta del Este offers.

Few resorts in South America rival Punta del Este for glamour. It might be geographically located in Uruguay, but it's where the glitterati and elite of Buenos Aires make their homes for the summer. This beautiful Uruguayan resort area has become an exquisite place to see.

On this tour you will enjoy a bike ride on flat areas that demand a low level of strength. You will be guided along safe paths and visit Mansa Beach, where sea lions can be observed. You will also see the city's symbolic lighthouse, which dates back to 1860. The lighthouse is 147 feet tall, and the crystal panels that are part of its illumination system were brought from France.

Another highlight of the tour is the church Nuestra SeÒora de la Candelaria, a beautiful sky-blue and white Victorian structure.

Other points of interest are: the Four Seas point, Punta Salina (where the famous and only navy battle of River Plate between German and British ships took place), English beach, Emir beach, Punta Vapor (where the first mass was held in 1516), and the famous monument known as ìThe Hand.î

Guests will be able to stop along the way at every attraction to allow for photo opportunities. Punta del Este's charm, nature, well-kept gardens adorned with colorful flowers, and the Atlantic Ocean's beautiful sandy beaches make it a perfect location for a smooth bike ride.

Riviera of Uruguay February 26, 2016
Reviewer: Ed  
It was a nice short and sweet bike ride around a summer resort of Uruguay.  Had warm weather and enjoyed the off-the-beaten path sights.


 
 
Very enjoyable February 22, 2016
Reviewer: Gremlinshotel  
This is a very easy ride that even novice riders can enjoy.  I would recommend that novice riders choose a bike with only 3 or 5 speeds, to make shifting easier.
