  • Once only River with huge sand dunes of sand and native trees. The huge tourism income was obliterating the natural and today was replaced by a population of houses and other more elaborate. Sandy beach that has been degraded by the introduction of inappropriate vegetation. In addition to the construction of a promenade close to the coast, which has contributed to the destruction of the beach itself. But today there are offers of various types which can have better visitors. Shops. Restaurants... places to have fun etc. There are also places a bit more rugged where installed only with a tent. Of course there are possibilities for toilets and places to make roasts. There the native vegetation has not been so decimated"... charged certain amount by the place. Optional motels and houses that are for rent. You can pass from one day to months. It all depends on your desire. And if you have little money you can catch...

Where to stay in Fray Bentos

Traditionally an industrial center rather than a touristic one, Fray Bentos has a limited range of accommodations. Head to the water's edge and you'll find a couple of nice hotels; move farther back from it and you'll stumble across a few simple guesthouses. This will no doubt change in coming years, with the listing of the old industrial factory as a World Heritage Site. Until then, consider looking in the neighboring towns of Las Canas and Mercedes for a wider selection of lodgings.
