Cabo Polonio is on a remote peninsula on the Uruguay coast about 6km from the main highway. There are no roads to get there, only paths through sand dunes. As a result, the only way to get to Cabo Polonio is by one of the official giant modified trucks to carry people there or by walking through the sand.
It’s a place stuck in the past. With no cars, electricity (except for scant solar & wind power), wifi, ATM’s or places that take credit cards, you feel completely isolated from the outside world. In the two days, I spent there I could feel myself descending back into the 90s.
Have a look at my photos of this curious place.
