There are two small grocery stores nearby (3 blocks walk) for all your basic needs and a number of lovely restaurants. The centre of town is 8 blocks (10 minutes) away and we are happy to offer recommendations, although our favorite is buying fresh fish from the local fisherman and popping it on the BBQ!
The nearest beach is the Rivero - family friendly, a number of surf schools if you fancy giving surfing a go, lifeguard service in summer months. You can also walk to Playa Grande, our favorite beach, where dolphins and turtles can often be spotted. You can also horse-ride, surf, cycle, go fishing, bird-watch or just chill our in your cabin and let life lull by. I also offer yoga classes down on the beach for any yogi or yoginis out there.
Bus services drop you off in the centre of town from March through to December and during Peak Season (January and February) at the Bus Station. If you are travelling by bus let us know your arrival time and we'll come and pick you up.

Excelente las cabañas Bossas y la relación con los anfitriones. Las fotos de la publicación representan exactamente el servicio ofrecido. Volveremos a Punta del Diablo y seguramente a Bossas.
Lovely time in Punta Del Diablo in Las Bossas! I stayed in Bossa Nova and the cabaña is beautiful, with a lovely terrace and direct view to the sea. Sara and Leo are wonderful - thanks to both of them for their warmth and good hospitality :-) Hope to be back in Uruguay again soon!
We loved Our stay at Sara & Leo's cabins! Our month was really relaxing ! We stay 7 days at Marakatu cabin and 20 days at Samba. All from the description and pictures was real. Cabins are really near to the sea (we can ear it from the bed at night ), the ocean view from the bed is beautiful, hammock on the balcony is perfect to the siesta, a barbecue to grill very good fish,...
We met Sara and Leo, they are very helpful hosts !! They helped us in every thing we needed and went to make sure we were comfortable ! Very good communication, they are always available for their guests !
One month in paradise, we definitely recommend a stay here :) Thank you!
I stayed one week on "Samba" cabin.
It was awesome, totally worth it. It had more facilities than expected. Light switches and electricity outlets everywhere.
The place is very quiet and peaceful (at least in September) has an excellent view to the beach.
There was a very big storm with heavy rain, and nothing happened to the cabin.
We loved staying in the Samba cabin. The bedroom is upstairs and has a balcony which has sea views. We ate our breakfast out there every morning. The cabin is well equipped, we cooked dinner for ourselves most nights as not many restaurants were open (we visited during low season). The cabin has most things that you will need during your stay, including wifi. As we visited during low season it was a bit cold in Punta del Diablo in the evenings but Sara provided a heater that kept the cabin warm, and the down duvet and blankets on the bed kept us warm when we slept.
Sara was a very good and helpful host. Sara gave us lifts from and to the bus stop at the start and end of our stay. Sara provided information about what to do in the area and about local services. Sara also teaches yoga classes, I attended one class during my stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. So I recommend attending one of Sara's classes if you enjoy yoga.
The cabins are close to the beach (nearest beach is a 5-10 mins walk), there are a couple of supermarkets nearby (not huge but sell the basics), and the centre of town is not far to walk either (approx. 10 - 15 mins walk).
Please note that there are no ATMs in Punta del Diablo so I recommend that you bring enough cash with you.
I highly recommend staying at the Samba cabin. I wished that we could have stayed longer! Thanks for a great stay Sara!
Sara and Leo were wonderful hosts! We stayed at the Bossa Nova cabin at it was awesome--a private deck, beautiful ocean view, and nicely located close to the beach but not too close. We also got a ride to and from the bus station which was incredibly helpful and thoughtful. We would love to return!

Leo is from Uruguay, a pure gemini who loves surfing, photography and gadgets. As a kid his parents took him on holiday to Punta del Diablo many times. Sara is from the UK and met Leo over 10 years ago in Barcelona where they both lived until last year. She loves the outdoors, yoga and veggie food and was easily convinced to go and live in Punta del Diablo. Together they have travelled to many wonderful places such as Indonesia, China, Morocco, Thailand, Peru... and try to help and accommodate their guests as they like to be treated themselves - chilled vibes in a safe environment, plenty of tips and local know-how, if you want to just hang out on your hammock all day that's cool but if you're up for a BBQ we are always at the ready ;-)
