Jose Ignacio

When to go

Jan-March

Ideal length

4 nights

Transfer time

1 hour flight from Patagonia

The small fishing village of Jose Ignacio is the new place to go for a beach holiday in Uruguay.  Punta del Este has grown quickly and commercialism has taken over, but thankfully the sleepy little town of Jose Ignacio has preserved its small town atmosphere. The village is located on a natural peninsula that juts out into the ocean with two sweeping beaches either side.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN JOSE IGNACIO

THE LIGHTHOUSE

The lighthouse, which has made this entire area famous, is one of the most popular places to visit, as it has an incredible view of the town, especially from the top

PLAYA MANSA

On the west side of the peninsula, the Mansa beach is usually the calmest of the two beaches and a place where you will see fishermen bringing in their catch in their colourful fishing boats

PLAYA BRAVA

A great beach for surfers as well as body surfing.  The swell from the ocean is much greater here, but it also a good place to sit and watch the action
