The St. Tropez of South America

Today we visited the Atchugarry Foundation in beautiful Punta del Este, Uruguay—an area often referred to as the "St. Tropez of South America." The group strolled the large, exquisite property and explored works by dozens of artists. Pablo Atchugarry, the artist who started the foundation, happened to be working in his studio during our visit, and he graciously chatted with us. Our journey then took us to Casapueblo, a cliffside villa and museum built by the late Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró with magnificent views of the ocean.
