This is one of the most important and popular tourist destinations in the country, chosen by thousands of visitors of all ages and nationalities.

We will stroll along the beautiful coastline of Punta del Este to admire its beach and will visit the emblematic “La Mano” or “Los Dedos” gigantic sculpture. La Mano is a sculpture in Punta del Este by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal. It depicts five human fingers partially emerging from sand. It is also known as either Los Dedos, or Hombre emergiendo a la vida. In English, its popular name is The Hand. It is a famous sculpture that has become a symbol for Punta del Este since its completion in February 1982 and in turn has become one of Uruguay's most recognizable landmarks.
- MACA (Museum of Contemporary Art Atchugarry):
A museum to preserve the dreams of artists.
The 40-hectare International Sculpture Park was designed in dialogue with the landscape and offers the viewer a natural setting in which to appreciate the monumentality of the works of national and international artists. With a special focus on the diversity of expressive languages, the park is part of the museum and is open to visitors all year round.

Casapueblo is a building constructed by the Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró. It is located in Punta Ballena, 13 kilometres from Punta del Este.
