Hotels in Rio de la Plata

    Rio de la Plata Details

    The Rio de la Plata region used to be considered a playground for only the wealthy. This area is an indentation in the coastline that forms some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. You can visit the modern museum named Casa del Pueblo or visit the nearby Isla de Lobos. The island has a large sea lion colony and also a lighthouse to explore. You can see attractions like the 1895 Catedral San Fernando or the 1771 Cuartel de Dragones. This last attraction is a military headquarters that was constructed between 1771 and 1797. Both of these popular tourist destinations are in the city of Maldonado, which is close to Punta Del Este. Punta Del Este is a relaxed city where you can feel free to sleep late and enjoy your stay in an unhurried manner.
