    It is FREE! What else can we say ? They created an excellent experience for people coming to Uruguay to remember Uruguay as an amazing country with great art and architecture. This place goes beyond just the achievement of the artist Atchugarry who carves amazingly beautiful marble pieces but combines architecture, art, nature, organizational skills of Uruguayans and puts everything on display. What would I do? Collaborate with Chandon and have them open an outdoor Champagne bar on part of the land, where the guests can get a bucket of champagne and lay on the grass and enjoy the beautiful grounds and picnick.

    Family friendly beach where kids can have fun in a safe environment. Many water sports can be played there. There are plenty of people who rent all kind of equipment

    As it happened, I was given an surprisingly detailed tour by a friend who knew the arboretum very well.
    There are an amazingly broad range of trees that are non-native, but have flourished there.

    It's the 3rd tallest in the world. Built in 1858, it is 194-feet high, and home to over 200,000 sea lions. It is the second largest colony of sea lions in the world. We could barely make out the sea lions from the playa, but we could hear them! The lighthouse is very visible. We didn’t have a chance to go out to the lighthouse on a tour boat, but our guide said there are tours that will take you there.

    This is a revolving restaurant really central in Punta Del Este and definitely worth visiting. The entrance fee is $8 USD and the food at the restaurant is rather expensive. Most everything on the menu is $10+ USD, but the experience and the view is well worth it.
