    The sea lions one more tourist.
    The Punta del Este port has simple access. Good lighting. Small and medium size boats. Amplitude of schedules in high season.
    Excellent views of the island.
    Wonderful options for sunrise and /or sunset photos.
    Well organized and clean.

    I am not a wine lover so I cant tell about it. I really enjoy traveling, landscapes, nature, architecture and food!
    I found Vina Eden very nice in all those things I like...but so expensive that I wasn't able to make the tour and have lunch. I chose to have lunch...and it was just OK. Very little portions, nothing special. Everything looks amazing but I find it quite disappointing.
    So if you have a lot of time, you are a wine lover and you have a BIG budget, you can visit Vina Eden. Otherwise just take a look and have a cup of coffee in the lovely restaurant!

    The museum, nestled in a quiet neighborhood, contains mostly modern sculptures, paintings, and lithographs by Latin artists. In addition to permanent exhibits, several temporary exhibits, including one by Alexander Calder, were on display. The lighting and space were pleasing. Admission is free and the museum is small enough to visit in an hour or two.

    Free. Sublime. Great statues. Great walk. Did I mention Free? Just wonderful. And you get to meet the Great man himself. A charmer.

    If you visit Uruguay and spend time in Montevideo then take a trip to Punta del Este it will certainly make you see the difference between the two places. The latter makes you think of some of the best resorts on the Gulf of Mexico, even some of the better European resorts. The beach here is lovely, the water warmer than you might expect and it is very, very clean - a real contrast with the capital. Well worth a visit.

    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.

    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.

    This street has mostly tourist-related shops and restaurants, but there are also other businesses which seem to flourish year-round.

    This is a nice church in the centre of town, right next to the lighthouse. We drove by on our way out to tour an olive farm and then I sopped by again while walking around town. This was a nice church but not elaborate or fancy like many.

    This lighthouse is one of the few old landmarks in this very modern city. It is not possible to go inside but it makes for a nice photo.
