Piriapolis

Founded in 1890, Piriapolis ranks among the premier beach resort destinations in the country. The city's founder, Francisco Piria, bought the long stretch of coastal land with the express purpose of establishing a resort town. After completion of his own residence in 1897--now one of the main attractions in Piriapolis--Piria added hotels, amenities, a port, and a steam train line. Now renamed in his honor, the resort city attracts visitors with its beaches, seaside amenities, and surrounding landscape.

Where to stay in Piriapolis

No one can say for sure what Francisco Pira would have made of the modern development in Piriapolis--but he wanted a beach resort, and he's sure got one. Hotels old and new cling to the beach, offering a variety of facilities including private swimming pools, outdoor dining areas, casinos, and spas. For something a bit quieter, explore the resort-style accommodations in the less built-up areas of the beach. Alternatively, head a bit back from the coast for simpler, modest options.
