Punta del Este 12



Arroyo Maldonado

Natural Resource


The Maldonado River is born in the Sierra Carapé, and has several minor tributaries.

It forms islands on its way, Cahuet Island to the north and close to the mouth, Fisherman’s Island.

Concerning the islands, there are legends of a hidden treasure, left there by the pirates who once infested the area.

The practical outcome of these legends is that the small populated area on the left bank of the mouth is known as El Tesoro - the treasure.
