Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio had the most incredible weather and beaches I've seen. The people were so kind and welcoming, too! You have to have dinner at La Huella, and you absolutely must do a day trip to the Garzon winery. That's where we were headed when we found this beautiful abandoned building located right on the beach. #lifeatexpedia
