Punta del Este Cruises
Sweetly positioned on a narrow peninsula in southeast Uruguay, Punta del Este is a glamorous resort city with sensational beaches, elegant seaside homes, an extravagant yacht harbour, and a luxury brand culture.
There are two very different, yet equally enjoyable beaches that most visitors gravitate to.

Away from the beaches, the city’s best known avenue, La Gorlero, is popular with both locals and visitors alike. This glitzy palm-lined hub of culture, cuisine and nightlife is well known for its restaurants, high-end stores, busy bars and casinos. Celebrity spotters can fill their days chasing stars as La Gorlero is the city’s best known avenue for a spot of people-watching and a gentle stroll.
Local handicrafts are sold at Plaza Artigas, and the 19th century lighthouse at the peninsula’s southern tip has a viewing platform for wonderful views over the peninsula.
