Wildlife Holidays & Birding Tours in Uruguay + Punta del Este + Jose Ignacio

Located 87 miles east of Montevideo on the southern tip of Uruguay, Punta del Este is the country’s best known beach resort. The ‘Miami Beach of South America’, it is a playground for the rich and famous from both Argentina and Uruguay, complete with yacht marina, luxury hotels and huge mansions. It is also a great base for wildlife holidays & birding tours in Uruguay, from Punta del Este & Jose Ignacio.
 
For sun seekers, Punta del Este is known for its beaches, water sports and nightlife. It is also home to the famous beach sculpture, La Mano de Punta del Este (‘The Hand’), where only giant fingers protrude above the sand. Eight miles along the coast at Punta Ballena is another iconic sculpture, the Casapueblo - the 'Greek Island of Uruguay'. The buildings include not only a four-star hotel, but also an art gallery, museum and the studio of the original artist, Carlos Paez Vilaro. A unique living sculpture, this is a must see on wildlife holidays & birding tours in Uruguay, Punta del Este & Jose Ignacio.
 
For a more relaxed beach experience many visitors choose to stay in Jose Ignacio, 12 miles northeast of Punta del Este. Much developed in recent years, this is a chic resort with some lovely boutique hotels and upmarket restaurants, but it retains a bohemian feel with dirt roads and hand painted road signs. Although no longer a quiet fishing port, it is still a charming place to kick back and enjoy beach life, combined with wildlife holidays & birding tours in Uruguay, Punta del Este & Jose Ignacio. There are fewer tourists here than in Punta del Este and long stretches of beach. For a terrific view of the area, climb to the top of the 45m lighthouse.
 
Along the Atlantic Coast you can see green sea turtles at Santa Teresa National Park, sea lions at Cabo Polonio and an abundance of birdlife at Rocha Lagoon on wildlife holidays & birding tours in Uruguay, Punta del Este & Jose Ignacio.
 
Combine your ideas with our expertise and let us help you create a holiday of a lifetime. We offer a wide range of options at different price points, all of which can be tailor made to your needs.
