Puente Leonel Viera, La Barra

4.5
Providing a free joyride over the creek Maldonado, Puente Leonel Viera seems like it was built simply for fun. Driving across the undulating bridge, which connects the posh beach resort town of La Barra with Punta del Este, may remind you of riding a roller-coaster--especially if you cross it with some speed. For something a little slower-paced here, try the little dock: a great spot for fishing.

  • Going to the bar must go through a few bridges in wavy shape. There is one for entry and one for bar output. If it is possible to speed up a bit it is a super experience. An architectural work worth watching. I love it.

  • You have to speed up the car and comes that cold delicious in the belly! The kids love it. Is going from Punta to José Ignacio. And coming back, of course. We passed several times. Free fun!

  • Before it was a single bridge and there are now two bridges, undulating, very different from the usual, in addition to its beautiful view is a fun experience to feel the emptiness in the stomach when he gets, must be handled with caution, but it is an interesting experience and very divirtida if It will be with guys. Step forced for the bar

  • Great architecture and very worthy to stop by and take some pictures. Pictures taken from La Barra to Punta del Este seem to have a better background
  • It is an interesting bridge. Since it is not far from Punta del Leste, it is a nice place to visit.
  • Go over this bridge fast it's like a ride at a amusement park
  • If you didn't already, try to cross it at 70kms/h
  • A 'wannabe different' silly bridge. A little dangerous, actually.
