    Switch to: enEN pt-brPortuguês (PT) esEspañol (ES)

    Located comfortably in southeastern Uruguay, the seaside city of Punta del Este is widely considered as one of the most exclusive resort towns in South America. Thanks to its nearby airport of Laguna del Sauce (IATA: PDP, ICAO: SULS) it is easily reachable by plane from most of the destinations in Latin America, including the most popular route – Buenos Aires to Punta. With low availability of commercial flights, especially during the high season, flights operated by general aviation aircraft became a viable option, especially for the most affluent travelers.
