Re: Need Punta del Este help!
I am guessing that you will travel by plane to Montevideo. When you get to throught customs, in the airport lobby, you will find a Touist Information office. The very attractive ladies who work there speak English, and should be able to give you some leads in finding an English-speaking guide, as well as other info.
I would recommend picking up a small Spanish phrase book to help make your trip more enjoyable. (At least you could always point to the phrase you want to use!)
Rental cars are rather expensive in Uruguay, so you might want to check out the FINAL cost of renting before taking off. Please know that there is an excellent bus service in the country! Also, taxis are good and not that expensive. Since you do not speak Spanish, you have to be especially careful. Ask a lot of questions at the Tourist Office.
I will be in Montevideo around the first part of September (depending on what my dentist does to me in Buenos Aires!), and would be glad to give you a few tips if you get lost. Have a great trip!
