Today we set out for the beach. As you can see from the google map snippet, there's not a ton of detailed road maps. Plenty of tourist offices give out free maps but they lack detail, as we discovered.
The main obstacle today was a conference call that I have every Friday at 11 am EST, or 2 pm Uruguay time. We picked up the rental car at …
The day we were supposed to spend entirely on the beach, soaking up the sun, turned out to be cloudy, windy and a bit chilly. We did our best though, seeing the touristy spots in Punta, eating seafood next to the water, and of course, more ice cream!

Once you find the place (no signage and don't trust google maps) you will see it's a total retreat. beautifully decorated and great service. you can pay the same amount in town and what you'll get there is just standard. what you'll get here is remarkable.
