A Handful of Must-Do Activities Punta del Este
Outside of his responsibilities as CEO of Lakha Investments LLC, Amin Andy Lakha enjoys traveling the world to experience new cultures. One of Amin Andy Lakha’s favorite destinations is Punta del Este, in Uruguay.
This beautiful city has a number of attractions, the most celebrated of which is probably La Mano, also called Los Dedos. This enormous sculpture of a hand features fingers sweeping upward out of the sands of Playa Brava.
Another iconic attraction is the Faro de Punta del Este, a lighthouse that dates back to 1860. While the lighthouse itself is picturesque, it also affords a view of the whole peninsula.
Visitors who want to venture just outside the city should head to La Barra, a chic resort town with great beaches. One of the most exciting parts of visiting the city is crossing Puente de La Barra, a suspension bridge that undulates gently over the water.
Must-visit restaurants include Lo de Tere, located in the harbor. This restaurant, said to have the best shellfish in Uruguay, provides diners with sweeping views of Maldonado Bay and Isla Gorriti.
