July 29th, 2017 Cafe Gourmand

A Bistro/Restaurant run by Erica (USA) and Greg (France) with excelent food. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in a high quality. They have excellent products and the bread is a dream. Prices are absolutly fair. If you pay with a foreign credit card you don't have to pay the 22% tax like in every restaurant or hotel in Uruguay.

July 26th, 2017 Cabanas Yacuruna

You can rent only the cabanas or with a tour-package. There are different type of cabanas. 2/4/6 in a room or one cabana with whirlpool. Check the website for prices. The hotel/cabanas offer: Pick-up service from the airport, restaurant, pool, laundry-service, billard, bar, motorcycle and quad rental, Wifi available but not strong. We were coming from Bogota and booked the cabanas including some tours like: Canopy, Kayak, City-tour, Three-border. The people are very friendly, daily cleaning (everything in the room). after a year of planing and travelling we decided to take the all-inclusive. The tours are nice and are organized with the office "Anazonas extreme". We can recommend this nice hotel.

June 7th, 2017 Waira refugio de la cocha

First of all: Jorge the owner is very friendly and helpful (maybe because he lived some years in germany 😊). He speaks german and english very well. You can park your vehicle at the flat area obove the house/cabanas and you can use the toilet and the hot shower in the house. Not possible with big trucks. Wifi is available in the house and the parking lot. Jorge is the owner of a boat and maybe he drive with you to the lake for a tip. We disn't use it but i think you can have 110V at the parking.

June 6th, 2017 Jardin del Lago

You can park your car at the parking lot and use the toilet. We had breakfast and almuerzo here and didn't pay for overnight parking. Nice garden with a spectacular view of the lake. Very nice family who run the restaurant. They can organize a boat to the island where you can walk around in the rainforest.

June 5th, 2017 Finca Sommerwind

A lot of things are written down. Try to visit at the weekend when the restaurant is open so you can buy nice cake and good lunch. You can change some guide-books. Hans helps you with everything. We are travelling with 2 kids and everything was totally fine with the dogs. They were playing together with the dogs and with other kids on the campground.

June 1st, 2017 Automotor VW - Patto Sigcha Mecanico VW

We arrived at 12:00 at the garage because we had a problem with one of our break-disk on our Volkswagen T4. Patto was very friendly and helpful. He managed everything to organize new parts. It was a "wonder" because this model of Combi was not sold in Southamerica. In the evening everything was fixed and well done. We didn't feel like gringos or foreigners taking money out the pocket! He gives you the feeling helping a friend with all the friendly staff around. And that is the truth because it was very cheap. He repairs all type of cars and even other mechanics recommend Patto because he is a VW-specialist. Thank you very much my friend!
