See the José Ignacio Lighthouse, the town’s most popular landmark, and visit other attractions like José Garzon Lagoon and the Sea Museum. The journey is almost as great as the destination – you’ll enjoy wonderful views of the Atlantic as you ride along the seaside highway.

Know More about this tour

After pickup from your Punta del Este hotel by air-conditioned coach, your 4-hour sightseeing tour begins as you make your way northeast to Jos Ignacio. Look out the window and admire beautiful Atlantic views as you drive along the ocean-side road, passing through the beach towns of La Barra (a colorful village popular for its Montoya Beach), Manantiales, El Chorro and Balneario Buenos Aires.

Arrive in Jos Ignacio ready to see its top sights with your knowledgeable guide; the small coastal village is best known for its eponymous lighthouse, which youll visit in addition to other attractions like Jos Garzon Lagoon, a local handicrafts market and Nuestra Seora de la Inmaculada Concepcion Parish Church.

Then visit the Sea Museum, where youll see one of the worlds largest shell collections. The museum is home to more than 5,000 species of marine life, both alive and in skeletal form, including sea faun, coral, sea stars, sea horses, dolphin and whale skeletons, turtle shells and shark jaws.

After youve soaked up the beauty and relaxing atmosphere of Jos Ignacio, youll be returned to your hotel.
