Punta de Este

Christmas aproaching and we need to find somewhere to stop over the holidays. Decided to try Punta del Este about 2 hours up the coast from Montevideo.

Punta is supposed to be a rich persons playground second only to Rio for the place to be seen by rich Brazilians and Argentinians. All I can say is they can't be that fussy, nice enough place, much like the Spanish costas. I assume its called a rich persons playground because everything is so expensive. Even MacDonalds costs more here than elsewhere, and all the shops are designer labels.

The town has been dead the last couple of days but today its really busy which was surprising for a Thursday, then we saw the cruise ship in the bay which probably explained why.

We won't be staying here for christmas, hopefully the next place will be more afordable.
