Originally from Montevideo, Victoria Gonzales migrates every year between Punta del Diablo and the shores of L.A. She leads a healthy lifestyle full of surfing, yoga and raw food, a philosophy that is reflected in the accommodation. Built three years ago, Solo Mare del Diablo consists of three self-sufficient cabins painted in colorful shades, and they are located very close to the sea.

Entirely powered by wind and sun, the cabins were constructed by local people using renewable materials such as timber and eucalyptus wood and traditional building techniques. Just like many other houses in the area, a biodegradable thatched roof — known as a ‘quincho’ — tops these charming eco-dwellings.
