Buquebus announces new ferry route from Buenos Aires to Piriápolis, Uruguay
The largest ferry operator between Argentina and Uruguay, Buquebus, recently announced their intention to relaunch direct ferry service between Buenos Aires, Argentina and Piriápolis, Uruguay starting in December 2020. Piriápolis is a classic Uruguayan beach town especially popular during Summer months. The new ferry service will not only allow easy access to Piriápolis, but also be a quicker way to get to popular beach towns such as Punta del Este (40 minute drive from Piriápolis) and José Ignacio (1 hour drive from Piriápolis).
Buquebus has not announced the exact duration of the ferry between Buenos Aires and Piriápolis, but our estimate is around 2.5 hours as it will be utilizing the high speed ship the Francisco, the same ship utilized for the Buenos Aires to Montevideo direct ferry route.
As of late-May 2020 tickets are still not being sold for the new route, but they are expected to begin being offered in the next week. If you are interested in this route or ferry tickets between Buenos Aires and Colonia please contact us at email@example.com.
