For those who don't know what Punta del Este is, it is a beach ringed town/peninsula in Uruguay about 1.5 hours from Montevideo. It's widely …

An unexpected day trip

... say about today really apart from watching useche attempt rock climbing (which he was very decent at) & checking out the waves along the coast to doing some rock climbing of our own (much smaller though) haha, the photos will tell you the story.

By this stage of the trip Uruguay had exceeded all my expectations and we were blown away by the generosity of the locals and our new friends.

... really nice marina but jenny and i wanted to go up the chairlift, to a bi hill, to get some views over the town.

... highway, fairly far from the sea which we knew the house was overlooking and with nothing recognisable around! I noticed an estate agent across the road so we went to ask him for directions. He told us we had been dropped off at a minimum 40 minute walk away!!! Then he said the local bus would take us to Casa Pueblo if we just waited for it at the bus stop outside his shop. Hey presto, 5 minutes later a rickety old bus turned up and drove us straight to the house and dropped ...

    Super convenient hotel right in the middle of Punta del Este. You can easily walk to any point of the peninsula. It's nothing fancy, but it was clean, showers had hot water, the wifi worked well, and there was a free breakfast. It was a bit pricey, but I would definitely stay there again.
