A City with an Artistic Soul

Fashionable Punta del Este is one of the most world’s most appealing seaside resorts, its white sand beaches popular with families and the glitterati alike. Fashionable cafes and shops line the streets, and an evening harbor-front stroll will no doubt include a serenade by street musicians and entertainers.

The town projects an artsy vibe, with a contemporary museum and the Brava Beach open air sculpture park, displaying large works in steel, concrete, wood, iron, and marble. The fascinating Casa Pueblo, home of artist Carlos Paez Vilaros, is a dazzling white fantasy on a hillside overlooking the town.

Casapueblo

An elaborate resort/museum built in the Mediterranean surrealist style; Casapueblo is a labor of love for artist Carlos Páez Vilaró that took 36 years to complete. Built as a liveable sculpture, explore seemingly endless rooms and terraces, then settle in for a stunning sunset over the Atlantic from the outdoor bar.

Playa de Los Ingleses

Punta del Este is home to over 40 miles of beaches, but Playa de Los Ingleses (the Beach of the Englishmen) is the closest to port and more sheltered from the wind than other local hotspots. Make a pit stop here to soak in a little more sand and surf before you board.
