Punta del Este
25 March 2009 | Punta del Este, Uruguay
Punta del Este is a very pretty and pleasant place on the NE corner of Rio de la Plata. It is a very popular place for (mostly wealthy) people to vacation.
Now that summer is over and children are back in school, many shops are closed, and it is quiet and peaceful.
In the picture, Issuma is at anchor in front of the Conrad hotel. There are moorings and docks to tie up at in Punta del Este, and there is also a big anchorage.
The members of Yacht Club Punta del Este, and especially their Commodore, Horacio Garcia Pastori, are extremely hospitable to visiting sailors and have a very nice restaurant overlooking the picturesque harbor.
