  • Nice place with horrible Migrations and Coast Guard. The latter will ask any sort of documents and COLOR photocopies of everything, although the already have the information in their registers. Even worse bureaucracy than other Uruguayan Coast Guard offices. A real shame!
  • Great place to look at the boats and watch the seals. There are several restaurants to eat if you are hungry.
