Introduction

On the final leg of our trip, we left Colonia to our next destination, Punta del Este. A beach resort frequented during the summer by masses of vacationers from Argentina and Brazil, to sun themselves on the perfect beaches. Sun worshipping is the main religion here at the beaches of Uruguay, and Punta is a first class resort town. In a few weeks the streets and beaches will be wall to wall people. We're glad to be here now when it's still relatively quiet, so we can enjoy the beauty of the beaches without the inundation of the vacationers.
