Photo Blog: Running Away to Cabo Polonio, Uruguay

Sometimes you just have to run away to the nearest beach. You know, get away from it all.

One of the best places in South America to do this is Cabo Polonio, Uruguay.

This bohemian, come-as-you-are hippy town is famous for it’s lack of electricity and subsequent amazing star gazing. During my recent vacation to Uruguay, I decided it was finally time for me to check this place out.

Located on a rocky point surrounded by Cabo Polonio National Park, this is not your average vacation destination.

The only way to get here is to take one of the 4 x 4 shuttles that run hourly through the sand dunes. I recommend sitting up front.

Cabo Polonio is simply amazing. Travelers come from all around South America to rent a rustic cabin on these special shores. The most common activity is relaxing, closely followed by beach exploring, sitting amongst candle light and playing the guitar.
