          A very nice and warm family home. I even felt like a family member. So friendly and nice. The kitchen is clean, breakfast is good (and included), pool, view tower, bike rental....

          everything you need.

          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!

          Very friendly place, vast garden, comfortable shared kitchen. A good deal & exquisite experience, especially at season's start (end of Nov), when it is still not crowded yet lively.

          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.

          We set off on the bus once again, sad to leave La Paloma but hopeful Punta del Diablo would bring more of the same. The journey was a pleasant couple of hours as we, once again, gazed out the windows at the forests and fields with the occasional glimpse of sea and were reminded of Scotland (on a very good day and if you ignored the abundance of …

          ... we check out this fort at the national park. It was huge. We happily paid the 20 peso entrance fee and roamed around a bit. It was occupied by the spanish, then the portuguese, the argentinians, uruguayns and brazilians at different points and had some interesting history. We were lucky enough to watch a stunning sunset from the top of it, after which we called it a ...

Then we spied a giant black bird in the sand, as we got closer we saw it was eating something. Closer again revealed it was a vulture eating a dead seal. It smelt so badly. So hurrying passed we made it to the rocks but it was too rough to see anything. With dark clouds rolling in we headed back to the hostel. Everyone else had the same idea as the hostel was ...

          On the way to the cemetery we saw a dog walker (paseadorres de perros). See pic. It was pretty crazy.

          On Christmas Eve we caught the fast ferry to Uruguay. Now I don’t like to put countries down so I will list out the positives first:

My walk along the beach was relaxing, and once coming across a nice dune I sat down, dropped my bag and read. It was peaceful and I was happy, until the rain caught me. No mucking around, this rain was pouring down and I had no protection. Quickly I found in the distance a large bush which was my best chance not to get soacked. "Iran, I ran so far away", and once in the bushes ...
