  • First I must say that Cabo Polonio should be included in the script of who visits Uruguay. It is a secluded and rustic seaside village with sandy streets, simple constructions, without lampposts and the electricity is only available for specific periods throughout the day, creating a special atmosphere and surroundings. The beaches itself does not have the beauties and structures found in Brazilian beaches, but provide beautiful surroundings for hiking and pleasant moments of leisure.

  • This place is beautiful! In an area so small a variety to be exploited. The beaches are beautiful, the houses are unusual, the sea lions are beautiful to admire. A paradise!
