Begin your tour with a scenic drive through Punta del Este’s most fashionable and impressive neighborhoods. Pass through the residential areas of Cantegril, San Rafael, Parque Golf and La Barra de Maldonado, known for its unique hanging bridges.

You’ll stop at the Ralli Museum of Contemporary Art with its fine collection of paintings and sculptures by noted Latin American artists, and several pieces by Salvador Dalí on permanent display. The attractive modern building is located in the Beverly Hills district.

Your drive will next take you past Punta del Este’s natural wonders -- its glorious beaches.

Then, you will visit Casapueblo, the home and workshop of internationally-renowned artist Carlos Paez Vilaró. The dazzling white complex, resembling Spanish-Moroccan architecture, is situated on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean. Vilaró built it in 1958 with his own hands, using only traditional tools. Narrow steps lead to a maze of rooms that are scattered on different levels and filled with the artist’s works.

Return to the port along the picturesque coastal road.

Notes:

The Ralli Museum is closed on Mondays.
