Punta del Este - URUGUAY
This is my first postcard from Uruguay, sent by Sergio and written in Portuguese - thanks a lot! I'm a beach and sea lover but normally I run from the massive tourist gathering spots and try to pick quiet almost deserted places. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
Punta del Este is a city and resort on the Atlantic Coast in the Maldonado Department of southeastern Uruguay; known as the St. Tropez of Uruguay, thanks to its beautiful beaches, upscale resorts and swanky nightclubs. The Vegas-style Conrad Casino adds to the lively entertainment scene. For a break from surf and sand, saddle up with a local gaucho and ride horseback through the wild plains surrounding the city. It's twinned with Marbella (Spain).
