The village of Pueblo Garzon is located about 70-Km from the beach resort of Punta del Este in Uruguay. Within a period of eight years this tiny village, population 200, has been transformed into one of the most sought after tourist destinations.

The peak period is December to February.

Tourists come here to not only relax in peace but more for its unique gastronomical delights.

The transformation was because of the arrival of a Argentine chef Francis Mallmann who began a hotel and restaurant on the site of what once was a grocery store.

It seems today the streets are lined with luxury cars and there are high end restaurants and boutiques.

Tourists do not mind spending up to $170 for lunch and $780 for a hotel room.

The hotels pamper the tourist with delicious dishes and the tourist can relax in a hotel room with wood-burning chimneys.
