Punta del Este Highlights

The picturesque seaside city of Punta del Este in the Maldonado Department is fast becoming the Monte Carlo of South America.

Make like a local as you experience every corner of this majestic area, from its sandy beaches to busy city streets. Head to the 45-meter-high lighthouse, built in 1860 with volcanic sand from Rome.

Stroll past upscale shops and restaurants along the famed Avenida Gorlero and peruse the local handicrafts while at Plaza Artigas.

You'll go across La Barra Bridge and experience the sensation of driving over the famous wave-like bridges. Created by Leonel Viera in 1965, this bridge served to expand the area of Punta del Este and helped pioneer the design of concrete segment bridges of this kind.

On this tour you will also see gleaming yachts at the Port, Brava Beach coast, stunning homes of the rich and famous in residential districts as San Rafael, the romantic Hotel L-Auberge, Beverly Hills, the iconic Casa Pueblo and Carlos Paez Vilaro Museum, and much more including the iconic La Mano sculpture. Throughout your journey your guide will share the history and culture of this popular tourist destination.

We enjoyed our Punta Del Este tour very much. Our tour guide and driver were friendly and knowledgeable about their home town. On a 15 passenger van, we visited several sites we had read about and even though it rained, we enjoyed highlights with our English speaking guide. Definitely worth the price, especially since our cruise ship tours were already booked. I think our tour through Shore Excursions Group was a better value. Will use this company again.

The Punta Del Este highlight tour started off with being picked-up on time at the port. We met another couple so there was only 4 of us for the tour. Wonderful, as we saw the big tour buses loading many people on board for similar excursions. We were only 4. The car was a bit 'tight' but we managed and it made for a comfy ride !! Our guide showed us all the highlights as well as providing great ideas as to wonderful vacation photo sites. The free museum was a real treat !! The lookouts were wonderful. All in all compared to seeing bus loads of people going to the same venues , we were able to 'beat the crowd' and had a wonderful morning.
