  • One of the most beautiful spa towns on the continent.
  • Where the waters of the Río de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean meet.
  • It has been referred to as 'The Pearl of the Atlantic' or 'the Southern Monaco'


Seaside city located 130km from Montevideo. A thin peninsula that enter into the sea and is the official limit between the Río de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean. In this tour we will visit its most characteristic and important places, as well as other not so well-known points that only the locals frequent. It is one of the most important and chosen tourist centers in the country by thousands of visitors of all ages and nationalities, it also became synonymous with the international jet set decades ago. Not only its natural beauties are what make it stand out, but also its different architecture and the services it offers. This destination really includes 32km of coastline between what is Punta Ballena and Manantiales. Then, 20km from this last point is José Ignacio with its lighthouse. I cannot guarantee that we will visit this last point due to time issues, but that depends on you since it is your trip and beyond my recommendations, it is you who will set the time to enjoy each stop or attraction. Punta Ballena Here begins the area of our tour, a high point of rocks that juts out into the sea and offers a spectacular view on both sides. Here is the famous Hotel Casapueblo Museum, built by the artist Carlos Páez Vilaro. Las Grutas To the East of the above, under the slope and cliffs, is the small beach and village. A world apart isolated from the rest of the environment with hidden coves and caves. Mansa Beach Already entering our main destination, the first thing we have is this beach. We will walk along its boulevard making stops to go down to the beach, walk along the wooden walkways, take photos or whatever you like. We will also enter their residential neighborhoods. The peninsula At the end of the above we will be delving into it, which is the origin of the city. We will visit its historical places such as the Lighthouse and the Candelaria Church and its shopping center and famous Gorlero Avenue. Rambla Circunvalación and Punta de la Salina that separates the Río de la Plata from the Atlantic Ocean and is the southernmost point of the country. Port Luxurious yachts and sailboats are combined with artisanal fishermen who return from the sea and sell their fish. Large sea lions always come to wait for the fishermen to throw them leftover fish, so they are on the pier a few meters from the people, like “posing for a photo”. Brava Beach and The Fingers The first thing we will visit is the famous sculpture of Los Dedos, a mandatory stop for all visitors. Then, we will tour the entire boulevard and the adjacent neighborhoods such as San Rafael, Rincón del Indio, or Bevery Hills, making as many stops as you like. La Barra, Montoya, Bikini, Manantiales We will cross the Maldonado Stream through the famous undulating bridge and visit the small beaches shopping center and its narrow streets. After all this, if we still have time and you want, we can go another 20km East to José Ignacio a very nice village that has became very famous.


Hotel pickup and drop-off Any stop that customers could want or need Wifi and internet conection wherever we go, not only in the vehicle

Important Information

  • As in all our tours and destinations, I make the following observations: This is your Tour, with your times and preferences, I am your guide to take you to the best places and advise you, but you are the ones who set the pace and what you prefer to dedicate more or less time to. If you like to stop, we stop, if you want to continue, we continue. I am not very strict or bureaucratic when it comes to the total duration of the ride and the return time, so you can enjoy yourself. The vehicle to be used is licensed for 7 people, including the driver, and there are safety features for everyone. The ideal number of adults in the group should be 4 of medium build so that they can travel in total comfort. It is also possible to incorporate 2 children or adolescents if they are not large. The clarification is because the 3rd row seat is smaller than the rest.
