This charming boutique is set on the small peninsula of José Ignacio, located 35km from Punta del Este. The Posada del Faro offers a relaxing stay along the long and quiet beaches with 15 chic and cosy rooms ranging from standard to superior, nearly all with a private balcony overlooking the pool and beach. The Posada also offers a small dining room with local dishes prepared each night for the guests.
The town of José Ignacio is inhabited by fishermen and settled land owners, who strive to preserve the imprint of a dream town. In Jose Ignacio and its lovely surroundings there are a variety of great restaurants.
For horse lovers, there are 3 places that rent horses to ride: tame or wild horses; splendid saddles and tacks, along with knowledgeable and dedicated people. There are also a couple of schools, one wind surfing and one kite surfing, in Laguna Garzón, to take advantage of the sometimes strong winds from the southeast. Sea fishing is also possible, with a boat leaving from Jose Ignacio beach.
