Welcome to Punta del Este…

      You’ve already imagined it: a time to relax and unwind in a world
of white sand beaches, fine cuisine, lavish scenery, and the opportunity to
engage in a unique South American culture.
      Punta del Este is a small city in Uruguay located on the continent’s
southeaster coast between Brazil and Argentina, projecting toward the
south Atlantic. A peaceful and stable country, both politically and
economically, Uruguay has one of the highest literacy rates in the world
and its citizens are the most educated of South America.
      Rolling green hills and architecture dating back to colonial days is
one of the exclusive characteristics of this peninsula city. The low hills are
strewn with large granite blocks that can best be viewed at sunset against
the horizon. Punta del Este is surrounded by stretches of brilliant coasts,
warm tidal lakes, and striking slow-moving rivers. We invite the cold and
weary, adventure seeking, and curious traveler to luxuriate in the rhythm
of the Uruguayan culture, explore the best neighboring sites, bask in the
warm sun, experience the mouth-watering cuisine and enjoy the services
and entertainment at one of our seven brand new resort hotels, created
especially for you.
 A small city, but never a dull moment.
