Montevideo to Punta del Este?

What are the best options to get from Montevideo to PdE? I'm considering either direct from MVD airport, or via the city.

Bom dia, alguém saberia me dizer se existe a possibilidade e se seria viável pegar um ônibus do barrio sur, na alturda da catedral de montevideo para Punta Del Leste.. Tenho duvidas em relação ao custo, se há este trajeto a partir deste bairro, se é seguro, tempo de deslocamento.. Agradeço se alguém puder me ajudar

@Mi C,

This forum is English-only You may want to repost in the Montevideo forum in Portuguese. Here's a link:


I can read a little bit of Portuguese and if you're asking about staying In Barrio Sur, it's sort of safe, depending on the area. Personally, it wouldn't be my first choice. There's no bus from there to Punta del Este. All buses leave from the Tres Cruces bus terminal.

The bus is the best option.

My wife and our eight month old daughter spent under 2 weeks and had a great time. Read about our experience so you can prepare for your trip. What an amazing and safe country.
