On this tour, you will take a scenic drive through Punta del Este's most fashionable and impressive neighborhoods. After tendering ashore, you will begin your tour with an hour-long sightseeing promenade through this upscale resort. Pass through the residential areas of Cantegril, San Rafael, Parque Golf and La Barra de Maldonado, known for its unique hanging bridges.

Make a stop at Ralli Museum of Contemporary Art with its fine collection of paintings and sculptures by noted Latin American artists and several pieces by Salvador Dali on permanent display. This attractive modern building is located in the Beverly Hills district.

Your drive will next take you past some of Punta’s natural wonders – its beaches. Stop at Punta Ballena for sweeping views up and down the coast, before ending your drive at Casapueblo, the home and atelier of internationally renowned artist, Carlos Paez Vilaró. The dazzling white complex, resembling Spanish-Moroccan architecture, is situated on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean.

Vilaró built it in 1958 with his own hands, using only traditional tools. Narrow steps lead to a maze of rooms scattered on different levels and filled with the artist’s works. Return to the port along the picturesque coastal road.

Depending on your time schedule, free time for window shopping may be available downtown, at Gorlero Avenue.
