  • One doesn't go to Carmelo exactly to enjoy the city nor the beaches. The wineries are what attract tourists and surely are worthy the visit. But just driving by was good for a little change.  more »
  • The place is a bit run down, but is very quiet and perfect if you want to enjoy some peace. We were staying at Narbona wine lodge, so the Balbeario was just a side trip on our way. We wouldn't travel ...  more »
  • In my opinion, all who come to Uruguay in the summer, need to have the experience of taking a dip in the Rio de La Plata and this locker room is a wonderful choice. We were there on a weekday in March and was practically empty. The River at this place is relaxed, almost a mirror of water and the silence is imperative. Excellent for those who want to rest, get some Sun and even meditate, in contact with nature. It's good to note that a resort of rio, especially in this city of Carmel, is completely different to what we Brazilians have to benchmark. There is no kind of infrastructure-no bathroom and there's no kiosk. It's good to get water, fruit and a pinch if you intend to spend a longer period of time. We recommend tbm, which in addition to sunscreen, you take insect repellent, because when it comes to River, there is a fairly large incidence of mosquitinhos.
