TRAVEL CATCH A FLIGHT Fly Uruguay offers a panoramic helicopter tour of the city and its stunning beaches. You can also learn how to fly, with a 90-minute training class explaining the basics. It’s a great way to see the city from up above. Visit: EXPLORE CLASSIC PUNTA A distinctive attraction and must-see for tourists are the caverns in Punta Ballena (a Sea Museum at La Barra) and the artistic Casa Pueblo; a museum and hotel built by Carlos Paez Vilaró perched on a cliff. Locals recommend riding around on a bicycle to stop for photo-ops. Ralli Museum is worth a visit too. It boasts a selection of modern and contemporary Latin American art, alongside European Modernist and Post-Modernist pieces. You can’t leave Punta del Este without seeing “The Hand” designed by Chilean artist Mario Irrazábal. The ominous sculpture is a landmark, with five gigantic fingers rising from the sand, at the beginning of Brava Beach. Swing by the market nearby for souvenirs and local food. STAY AT… Hotel Fasano Punta del Este is not what you’d expect, given the surroundings. The award-winning architectural project is the first Fasano brand outside Brazil, overlooking the Maldonado river. Relax at one of the stunning 20 bungalows and engage in activities and experiences including tennis and golf. To book: View of the sea from Punta del Este Uruguay, Casapueblo. This is a hotel and a gallery art where the famous artist and celebrity Carlos Paez Vilaro used to work Hand Sculpture, the symbol of Punta del Este, Uruguay 60 EQUITY
