from Buenos Aires to Montevideo

by Tesoro7

Hi All:
Am getting ready for my next adventure and, as always, need your help in detail. I live in Los Angeles, CA and am going to Buenos Aires for a few days, from there I am going to Montevideo (by boat, buquebus, or whatever - THIS IS MY QUESTION, later) will spend about a week in Uruguay and for my flight back to the US will go back from Montevideo to Buenos Aires. Will need your advice on what is the best and least expensive way to go from Buenos to Monte and days later from Monte to Buenos. Any websites for local transport, any average in the US dollars? Thank you all in advance.

"A few days in Buenos Aires and a week in Uruguay.." Did I read that correctly?
Regardles how boring Montevideo is is the summer, I can't imagine going there in the winter. (It's now winter)
The least expensive way would probably be by bus. There is a large bus terminal near the Retiro train station. I doubt if tickets for the bus or boat have to be bought more than a day in advance. Both Boat companies have offices on Cord-oba near Carlos Pelligrini

Hi,

Colonia Express may be one of the cheapest ways to do that trip.
Another option, it used to be the cheapest (now I don`t know) but it takes longer is http://www.transuruguay.com/regulares.htm
Both are bus-boat trips but the second one does another route. I've tried that several times and have no complains.

Buquebus has 3 different ways to do the journey and different rates:
1- fast ferry BSAS-MVD
2- fast ferry BSAS-COL and bus COL-MVD
3- slow ferry BSAS-COL and bus COL-MVD

By bus it's a 8 hs trip (600 kms) and the companies are:
- Bus de la Carrera
- Belgrano
- Cauvi

For timetables from MVD check www.trescruces.com.uy

Regards;

Rafa

Hi,

From MVD to PDE take COPSA or COT buses from Tres Cruces bus terminal. No reservations needed, in high season there are buses every 30 mins or less.

Times

by Shakermaker

Things in Uruguay are done later that in most european countries and the USA.
For example dinner here is usually at 9pm.
Another clear example are nightclubs, they won't open until at least 1am and they close at around 7am.

La Fiesta Final

by andal13

La Fiesta Final (The Final Party) is a great outdoors party that takes place the last weekend of November or the first one of December. An open place is closed with fences, and inside a huge area, the most important restaurants, discos and pubs "relocate" there, and a lot of concerts takes place all the night long.
You must pay a ticket to come in, and inside, you pay the food and drinks you have; the shows are free.

La Fiesta Final es una gran fiesta al aire libre que se lleva a cabo el último fin de semana de noviembre o el primero de diciembre. Un predio abierto es vallado, y dentro se instalan las discotecas y pubs más importantes, y un montón de conciertos tienen lugar durante toda la noche.
Deben pagar una entrada, y luego, los platos y bebidas que consuman; los espectáculos son gratuitos.

Tandor ?? Asian fusion

by ericdharma

This actually should probably be a restaurant tip but I don't have all of the information because I was walking and just happened to find this place so I will place it here. It is in easy walking distance from the Punta Trouville hotel in Pocitos. It is an Asian fusion restaurant which I think was called Tandor. If not Tandor it was some other cognate for Tandoori because the name caught my eye because I was thinking that I had located an Indian restaurant (I love East Indian food). The decor is really amazing and the food is excellent though you have to keep an open mind. There are suggestions of Thai, Indian, Chinese, and French cuisines but someone looking for the purity of any of these culinary traditions would be disappointed here. For example, I ordered samosas and they came out in the pastry mold of an empanada. I began to get worried until I tasted them. They were amazing but they weren't samosas. They had the peas and the potatoes but also a sweet sauce mixed with soy sauce. It seems like it wouldn't work, even from the description, but the food there was fantastic. I felt sorry for the chef because there wasn't really anyone there. I get the impression that Argentines and Uruguayans want their meat and aren't the most adventurous eaters. (Actually there was a warning on the menu which advises that the food comes naturally without spices and if you want it hot you have to ask for that specially. Imagine this in an Asian fusion restaurant.)

some interesting machineries in the port

by globetrott

In the port of Montevideo, at the same place as the anchor of the battleship "Admiral Graf Spee" you will see some old machineries like this old steam-powerded crane as well as a lot more anchors and other remains from old ships. It is a nice place for ships-enthousiasts like me and another good argument not to take one of the many free shuttle-buses that offer you to take you to the city (and mainly to shops selling leather-goods there)
