The perfect location
Punta del Diablo is a fishing village located in Rocha department, right on the east coast of Uruguay. It is known for having a bohemian and artsy vibe as well as for its beautiful three beaches: La Viuda, Rivero, and Playa de los Pescadores. It is three hours away from Montevideo, the capital and major city of the country, but once you get there you will feel like a million miles away from the urban life. It is perfect for you to disconnect from your daily routine and appreciate nature. It is near other amazing places for camping like Santa Teresa, La Pedrera, and La Paloma, so if you can accommodate it, include them in your schedule, or if you are near, pay a visit to this wonderful fishing village by bus or even by hitching a ride.Camila Blanco
All of my Uruguayan friends have replied this question in the same way. The capital- Montevideo. Montevideo. It is clear to me that a lot of people don´t even know about its existence. Because of my huge interest in South America, I am aware of it since my childhood. However, for a very long time it represented for me only the city with a strange name (it includes the word „video“) at the sea between Brazil and Argentina. Easily searchable in the map, just in front of Buenos Aires on the other side of the bay. Now I know not only that it has nothing to do with videos and that it is not located directly at the sea but at Rio de la Plata (the estuary of the rivers Uruguay and Paraná to the sea) but also a loooot of other things. Firstly, Montevideo is a very special city. It represents the best of the country for Uruguayans, a sort of oasis of peace and progress for people from other South American states, (…) for tourists. What can be written in the (…)? Let´s see what does this city offer.Barbora
