St. Tropez of Uruguay

By Linda Tancs

Punta del Este is regarded as the St. Tropez of Uruguay.  Less than two hours from Montevideo, the tiny peninsula offers enough glitz and glamor to rival its French counterpart.  Twenty miles of pristine beaches, resorts, condos and nightlife attract the jetset and, during the fast-approaching high season (December to March), there are fashion shows, a film festival, a jazz festival, rodeos and regattas to attend.  If you prefer quiet enjoyment of the surf and sand, then take in a natural tour by biking, horseback riding or bird watching in the cooler months, April through November.
