      Where to stay and what to do in Montevideo?

      Uruguay May 20, 2016 at 8:11 AM

      I'll be flying to Montevideo by the end of July and I was wondering if you guys could recommend any district/hostel to stay while being in the city?

      We plan on continuing our journey to Colonia then and take a ferry to Buenos Aires.

      Thank you!

      What is the procedure for Buquebus check-in at Tres Cruces bus terminal?

      Montevideo Jan 11, 2016 at 6:36 AM

      Hello everyone,

      I have purchased the bus + ferry Buquebus tickets from Montevideo to Buenos Aires.

      At Tres Cruces bus terminal, does anyone know if I need to do anything in particular to check in for the Buquebus bus ride? Do I look for the Buquebus sales desk and show them my printed online confirmation to get paper bus tickets? Will I get my onward ferry tickets to Buenos Aires at the same time?

      Also, I will have two luggage cases with me. Do I check them in before I get on the Buquebus bus and retrieve them when I get off in Colonia? or will it be transferred to the ferry automatically?

      Thanks everyone for your helpful insight.

      Where do Buquebus bus leave from in Montevideo?

      Montevideo Dec 14, 2015 at 12:25 PM


      I've bought a bus+ ferry combination tickets (bus to Colonia, then ferry onward to BA) for my trip from Montevideo to Buenos Aires.

      Where do I go to catch my bus? Are the Buquebus buses to Colonia leave from the ferry terminal or somewhere else?

      I need to arrange for a transfer and want to know the exact location to pick up the Buquebus bus.

      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Ferry to Buenos Aires

      Montevideo Nov 4, 2014 at 3:49 AM

      I am trying to book a one way ticket to Buenos Aires from Montevideo on the fast ferry service of Buquebus. I have been frustrated by their web site as despite initially offering an English translation, it reverts to Spanish when you try to book the tickets. So it is hopeless and I can't get any further as I don't understand what it is asking me to do.
      All I require is to know how much two first class tickets cost on a one way trip from Montevideo to Buenos Aires on March 6th 2015 at about lunchtime. I prefer to book in advance online but this is proving impossible, so If any Spanish speaking friends can help me I would be very grateful.

      Can't seem to find if this is open year round, the website only seems to be in spanish--we might spend a month or so in south america during the USA summer months, but I know its dead winter in PDE. I see its a hotel, so perhaps the museum is open as well.

      First time ever in Uruguay.
      Arrival at noon from overseas flight, check in latest at 14.00 in Punta Carretas.
      Thereafter ?
      Who has good suggestions where to go and where not to go ?
      Ideally I would walk the streets to enjoy nice local atmospheres.
      Then go for a good local drink, perhaps for apéro time.
      Then for sure have a great meal in the evening in a nice local place.
      Thank you for any useful tip and wish a nice week-end to all VTs.

      According to the future forecast on some rain is expected during Feb13-20

      If this forecast is true, how bad do the rains get in Montevideo? Will it keep me from doing anything outside without an umbrella. If you have better local weather information can you let me know how likely this rain will be? I would like to also visit the beach but not have to travel too far to get to one, does Montevideo have good beaches? I have seen information on Pocitos beach, is it nice there, any other?
