Cabo Polonio is situated on a remote Peninsula on the coast of Uruguay, about 6 km from the main road. There are no roads, only paths through the sand dunes. As a result, the only way to reach Cabo Polonio — just for giant trucks to transport people there, or walk across the sand. This place is stuck in the past. Without cars, electricity (except in the meager solar energy and wind), Wi-Fi, ATMs or places that take credit cards, you feel completely isolated from the outside world. During the two days I spent there felt like going back to 90-ies. View photos of this curious place.
