Puente Leonel Viera, La Barra
(4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. For Puente Leonel Viera and beyond, use our La Barra trip builder to get the most from your La Barra vacation.

  • Is an interesting bridge. Located between Punta and La Barra. Construction beyond curious because was executed in wave format. It's exciting to go up and down when crossing from one side to the other. A ride of a lifetime!

  • Beautiful bridge that connects with the bar. It is one of the attractions of the place. The journey is worth it.

  • The bridge is at least different, with the "belly" down. Gives that chill when you go to some speed on it. Fun.

  • It is an interesting bridge. Since it is not far from Punta del Leste, it is a nice place to visit.
  • The most crazy in the world
  • A 'wannabe different' silly bridge. A little dangerous, actually.
  • It represents Punta del Este

  • Excellent book, an icon of the bar, ideal for shooting amazing with red sunsets with the profile of the bridges cut against the sky. The entire environment is lovely.
