Places Worth Visiting

Canelones is the province where I live. A good part of it is a long stretch of sea-side resorts along the Río de la Plata, just east of Montevideo.

I live in Soylmar, Ciudad de la Costa, which is part of "Costa de Oro", the whole strip of beaches.

Here I show some of my favorites places. I'll start with Cuchilla Alta, which is where I am staying right now.

I have to take pictures, but I'll place a post-card to start. I will be updating this in the next few days.

Cuchilla Alta is one of the last beaches in Canelones, so it is really close to Piriapolis and Punta del Este, in Maldonado. Actually, from my house on the beach, I can see all of the Piriápolis skyline, with its soft hills. You can see some of it in the postcard.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Ideal for relaxing; nice, kind people.
  • Cons:Not many services, slow-paced town (could be a pro), almost no night-lift; only one cyber-cafe
  • In a nutshell:Sigh.....!
