Furthest east, near the border of Brazil, lies Punta del Diablo. This fishing village truly is what Punta del Este was like before developers took over.

When the bus drops you off in the middle of town, you’ll step out onto dirt roads. Several of the most popular hostels are a short 5-minute walk away, overlooking the main beach.

Seven or eight restaurants are open all year, given visitors in the offseason a few options for meals, besides cooking for themselves.
