Atmosphere

Few locals, very quiet, be careful with the kids which are taking a bath with no boards. Have fun and enjoy a latin surf spot.

There are no locals in Jose Ignacio except the ones from punta del este, respect and you will have no problem. A good advice is not to come in groups of more than two people.

The spot is a good break in Uruguay, especially in the days where Pamperos make it impossible to surf in better breaks.

Where to Stay in Jose Ignacio - If it isn’t too much trouble, would you be able to give me some information regarding where to stay in Jose Ignacio? I am traveling to Uruguay at the end of November (through the first week of December) and would like to visit this village for a night or 2. Thus far, I have only been able to find information on 1 hotel and it’s a bit on the expensive side. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
