Punta del Este, Uruguay
I have been hearing about this beach town since I arrived here in Montevideo. From everything I heard, it sounded like a Miami in Uruguay. I had to go, clearly.
2 hours outside of Montevideo rests the town of Punta del Este. During the months of January and February the place is packed with people – a lot of Brazilians and Argentines. People here have some money – some dock their mansion-boats, others drive around in luxury cars.
Then there is Bikini Beach – a must spot to go to in order to see the daytime festivities. At night the clubs aren’t worth going to until 2 a.m., and stay open all night into the daytime. If you are looking for a party on the beach while getting your fill of people-watching, Punta del Este is your place.
