    José Ignacio is fantastic, beach, sea and fishing.
    There is a site with lots of information about turism in Uruguay, and is an official site.

  2. Matt Dyer says:

    Awesome destination if you're looking for a low key beach that still has some decent amenities, this is a great spot. Not super touristy and good place to get the local feel.

    I love José Ignacio! If I was an artist or a writer, this would be my home! Ocean, silence, wind, nature, beautiful architecture. I adore José Ignacio in winter time!
