Punta del Este on the southern shore is Uruguay’s best kept secret. Offering wondrous sites to behold beneath the waves as well as above.
Other dive sites in Punta del Este include Minas and Maldonado Bay. Minas is the place where divers can explore a submerged goldmine. In Maldonado Bay, divers can explore ship wrecks such as the wreck of Lord Nelson’s favorite ship, the HMS Agamemnon. This incredible 64-gun Navy vessel sank slowly into the bay in 1809. It is now a powerful underwater reminder of the grandeur of the ship in its sailing days and is just waiting to be explored.
