Punta del Este

A spectacular place to work and live in.

Punta del Este is a unique natural destination with more than 20 km of coastline and high mountain ranges overlooking the sea. It is recognized around the world as one of the most outstanding seaside resorts in the Americas and the most exclusive in the region. It is in the Department of Maldonado, just an hour and a half from the country’s capital.

Spectacular homes, buildings overlooking the sea, yachts in the port, shopping centers, golf courses and a complete range of health, education, financial services, restaurants and 5-star hotels combine to make Punta del Este an exceptional place that thousands of foreigners choose to live and work in.

The varied coastline and fine white sand of the Brava and Mansa beaches make it an ideal destination for water sports. These beaches meet at the mouth of the River Plate and the beginning of the Atlantic Ocean. Punta del Este is growing westward at Punta Ballena and eastward at La Barra and José Ignacio.
