  • What else ...

    What else ...

    our place is located by a beautiful beach really close to main turistic spots like punta del este and piriapolis, we usually surf when conditions are good so you might want to join us, transportation is good since we are close to main highway, so you can go spend the day either in punta del este or piriapolis, we are also close enough to montevideo and some beaches of Rocha like la paloma. (about 100km from both places) and about 80 km from minas where you can visit villa serrana ( a nice village located at lavalleja´s hills).
    so sauce de portezuelo, is a strategic spot if you want to visit main south east cities but still stay in a quiet and natural place.
