A panoramic drive through typical inland Uruguayan scenery brings you to the 0'33 olive oil farm. Both a brand name and a global position, 0'33 is the latitudinal average of wine-growing territory in Uruguay.
Upon arrival, you will visit the 0'33 olive groves. Stop at the vegetable garden and visit the Olive Oil Mill Boutique. Here, a specialist will provide you with a detailed explanation of the different steps in the oil-pressing process. A tasting session acquaints you with the extra-virgin oil, cheese, homemade breads and a glass of locally-produced wine.
Back on the coach, you'll take Route 9, stopping at several points of interest along the way. José Ignacio Beach Village at Mansa Beach is a quaint little fishermen's little harbor. From the lighthouse viewpoint, admire sweeping vistas and Brava Beach.
Route 10 returns you to Punta del Este, passing the exclusive summer resorts of Manantiales and La Barra Beach. Crossing the wavy bridge, continue your drive past the Brava beaches and back to the pier.
