Making Beach

A travel blog entry by meganfisher


Somehow, when the locals translate going to the beach into English, they say "make beach". Well, I spent the better part of the last week doing just that. I think it will be my last beach time until Asia, so I wanted to make the most of it.

I took the bus from Montevideo north along the coast. When the bus says it is semi-direct, it means …

... style: normal; font-weight: normal;">It’s super safe (touch wood).

Righto… the negatives:

  1. Holy **** it is expensive. Manly has nothing on this place. We paid US$75 for two small bowls of pasta, one dessert and 500mL of water. And then they asked us for a tip (we politely refused as we had literally run out of pesos).

    ... any British summer we've had! We spent most of Thursday sunbathing on the beach, and wore shorts and vest tops. Did I mention the private beach?!

    On Friday we walked around Santa Teresa National Park, which is huge, and we had the entire place to ourselves apart from several noisy flocks of parakeets nesting in the trees. We were wandering around in a beautiful tranquil place and ...

... sing along to the sounds of the lion king. At 04:30 it was time to call it a successful night and hit the bed seeing breakfast was not gonna wait for us in the morning, and seeing I was back to my adventurous mode I wanted to make the most of the morning before heading to Cabo Polonio. Seeing I was happy and energetic once more I was counting on Crowded House to take the weather with me to the beach the following morning.

    Great place to stay. I little bit back from the town, but an easy walk to everywhere. The staff is super friendly and they have the cutest little puppies. Good breakfast, clean facilities. A nice pool, pool table, lots of common areas, and a well stocked kitchen. I stayed longer than intended!

    Best Hostel ever

    We were six months into a year long trip when we found this hostel. It was definitely the best hostel we have stayed at yet. The hostel was built to be a hostel, not a converted house. The rooms and bathrooms are well planned out and the common room and kitchen are huge. There is a pool, seriously a pool, with a pool house, that has a pool table (sensing a theme?). The owners are amazing and charge reasonable prices, rather than most other hostels in the area, that over charge just because they can. Highly recommend!! Book ahead of time, this place fills up.
