About this listing
Maracatú is one of LAS BOSSAS Beach cabins - a spacious open loft style cabin just meters away from one of the main beaches in Punta del Diablo. Sea views, kitchen, bathroom, WIFI, Alarm, TV in HD, hammocks, deck chairs, BBQ, parking and wood burner!
The cabin 'Maracatu' is one of three beach cabins (Cabañas Las Bossas) all located on the same plot close to the beach in Punta del Diablo. It is a spacious and light, open-pan beach cabin with fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Its style copies that of the original fishing shacks built by the first inhabitants of this Uruguayan Fishing Town but ensures that all your creature comforts are well accommodated for; fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, juicer, pots, pans, etc), hot pressure shower, your own BBQ, hammocks, sun deck, WIFI, Direct TV with channels in HD in English, Spanish and Portuguese, speakers for ipod, laptops, etc, safety money deposit box, beach gear, fan for if its hot, heater for if you're visiting in winter... ). Sheets and towels are optional. I also have a number of books in english to lend or swap!
The cabin is just a block from the main beach in Punta del Diablo and six blocks from the main town centre, where the bus drops you off in low season. In high season the bus stops only at the bus terminal and you can get a shuttle bus or we will come and pic you up. There is a grocery store a few minutes walk from the cabin and there are also a couple of restaurants only a block or two away.
In Punta del Diablo you can horse-ride, surf, cycle, go fishing, bird-watch, take amazing walks along deserted beaches, spot orcas, turtles, sea-lions or whales if you are lucky, eat yummy freshly caught local fish and sea food 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.
There are many places to visit within the local area that we would be happy to help you get to; Santa Teresa National Park, Fort San Miguel, the magical sunset at La Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon), the natural sea-lion reserve at Cabo Polonio, sandboarding in Vallizas, boats trips along the Bosque de Ombues (Ombue Tree Forest)...
Come and enjoy the relaxed vibe of Las Bossas, we look forward to your visit!

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 ;-)
