It’s been almost an every-other-Saturday thing for me when visiting the beaches here in Uruguay. Last weekend, along with the Manila Mafia, off we went to probably the most popular destination on this side of South America. It’s called Punta del Este and it’s my second time around. Please check out this link about my first visit.
We did almost the same stuff as last time. With some very minor updates like the hostel (The Trip Hostel), a new restaurant (El Tonel Restaurant) which is quite pricey compared to parrillas in Montevideo, bar hopping (from Moby Dick to Uruguay’s hippest bar in my list, Dolce Vita) and the sunset experience at Casa Pueblo (complete with a recorded poetry reading from Carlos Páez Vilaró himself).
Let me just let the pictures speak for our trip.
