Hey all! This might be a little complicated, so bear with me:
My friends and I are planning a weekend trip to Punta Del Este from Buenos Aires, where we're currently studying. They're planning on leaving Friday morning, but I work all Friday, so I'd have to leave after work. Since they're leaving midday Sunday, taking the 6 hours out of my Saturday would make the trip pointless. So, I've figured out a way to get to PDE overnight after work on Friday, but it's a little complicated:
1. I get out of work at 6, I can leave a little early and catch a 6:55pm Seacat ferry to Montevideo (I work close to the station)
2. The ferry would get me to Montevideo at 11:10. I then travel from the Seacat terminal to Tres Cruces bus station and take a 1:00am bus out of Montevideo to PDE.
3. I get to PDE around 3:30am and somehow figure out how to get to my friend's AirBNB, where they'll all still be up partying (hopefully), at 4:00am
Is this plan crazy? It involves me traveling through Montevideo and then PDE alone at night. Will I die? How dangerous is it to be alone at night in those places? Any insight would be appreciated (including alternate ways to get there, but I've already checked flights and every combination of bus/ferry so idk if there IS another way).
