  • It is worth to spend the afternoon in the island. It is better in days of light winds. Fantastic views of Punta del Este.

  • Today we embarked on the Cruiser Samoa company to go fishing the Gorriti island from 9 to 11 pm. The marine was not witnessed, reason by which we leave 15 minutes later. Despite the fact that the climate wasn't ideal company made us to embark. Unfortunately didn't pique the first 20 minutes, then moved us a few meters to another place. One of us felt a pique, and anyway the captain decided without consulting us back 10:20 at a minimum speed, alluding to the bad weather. We only fish almost half an hour and they charged us the service for two hours. A scam. They work badly and to dialogue with them verbalising the sequence of the events were not self-critical nor comprehensive. We do not recommend that they hire them, attach a picture so that they display the place of these scammers.

  • Gorriti Island, is located in Maldonado Bay, which is part of the beaches calm of Punta del Este, Spa considered number one in South America. Due to its special location, the views from the Gorriti Island are impressive, look it towards the peninsula of Punta del Este. No traveler must get to know this wonderful island, where can also bathe on beaches.

Where to stay in Punta del Este

A major vacation destination, Punta del Este boasts a wide range of accommodation options, though most establishments remain relatively expensive even during the off-season. Summer marks the peak of tourism (December to March), and during that time even mid-range hotels charge top rates. Visitors with deeper pockets can choose from a number of three- and four-star hotels within walking distance of good beaches. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider one of the hostels scattered throughout Punta del Este's residential neighborhoods.
