Buenos Aires to Punta de Este – 2020 update
The beaches of Uruguay have long been popular with vacationing Argentines, but increasingly visitors from the Northern Hemisphere Winter are flocking to the trendy beach towns as well for a Summer escape. The most known Uruguayan beach town is Punta del Este, known for stylish accommodations and events and excellent dining and drinking.
While not a day-trip from Buenos Aires, Punta del Este is a nice side trip from Buenos Aires and is easily accessed by a ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia and bus from Colonia to Punta del Este. For the 2019-2020 Summer season the ferry lines are offering buses directly from the Colonia ferry terminal to Punta del Este that are coordinated with the arrival/departure of ferries making it very convenient to travel to the beach town without having to rent a car of purchase separate bus tickets.
Like we always tell our clients wanting to travel during the busy months of December-February, book as far in advance as possible as ferries and transport to the beach towns sell out routinely or are priced very high close to the travel date. We’d love to help you purchase your ferry tickets and send you the schedule and pricing, just fill out the form on the home page and we’ll get back to you quickly.
