... when we got back. Jane and Nate asked us to play pool so we spend the afternoon playing pool and drinking beer. Around dinner time Nate mentioned this game called 'settlers of catan' and asked if we had ever played. Jane explained that she had made her own version and did we want to play. Why not? So they began to set up and explain the rules, it was really complicated as there were lots of rules, especially when it came to scoring points, but became easier ...

Population 83. Altitude 12 meters above sea level. I'm not sure why the elevation is important but it's right there on the road sign as you enter Punta Del Diablo. Apparently the population of this village can spike to over 20,000 during the peak season, but right now that prospect is about as far fetched as sitting in traffic during rush hour. Things couldn't be any more chilled out.

Sipping mate, fine ...

We found the surf!

Stop 3 on the Uruguayan coastal tour is Punte del Diablo. We arrived at a fantastic hostel with a very well equipped kitchen, big lounge, hammocks and a pool. The owner seems to really know what travellers want, we think after so many hostels we could a good job of setting up our own, maybe an idea for our next adventure?! We spent the first afternoon relaxing and making friends here.

Day 2 we were off on bikes to the national ...

Where the Beach Meets the Forest

May 19 - June 13

During temporada baja, low season, Punta del Diablo remains true to its old form.

Right now, this sleepy yet colorful coastal village contains no more than a few hundred people. But during high season, which begins somewhere around November, the population swells to 25,000 or more. Party-seekers, who are mostly from Brazil and Argentina, flock to Punta del Diablo for surfing, dune boarding, and horse ...

Chill-out Uruguay style

... about this place still seems to elude us. It seems to change here as fast as the weather does. In Punta del Diablo you should go out with clothes for two seasons. You can be roasting under the sun one minute, the next a chilly wind (the wind is ever-present here) can make you shiver, then you are hot again, looking up to a clear sky and two minutes later you are soaked from a sudden shower. Also the character of ...

    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.
