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.

  • a place where most animals are free; you can touch ñandu and the word's biggest rodent: capibara  more »
  • Nice for walking, touring, see wildlife, native and beautiful view of the hills. For children it is super recommended. They love insurance. It found neat. Was several years that not passing by there.

  • The truth not I am lover of this type of ride, the animals are caged small places, it could have taken place to create a place for the same purpose with other characteristics, if not no fences like the zoo.
