More Punta


Punta del Este is part of the Municipality of much larger Maldonado, which is adjacent to it and set back a bit from the sea. The town is much more laid back and considerably cheaper than Punta. The Cathedral de Maldonado below is a great example of the beautiful blue tiled roofs of the area.
Since Argentine tourists generally clear out of Punta by the end of February, Punta had already held its Carnaval Parade the weekend before we  arrived. On the Sunday before Carnaval, Punta did however offer two pretty spectacular evening sky shows. We captured both from the rooftop of our hotel.
