Hi! Has anyone been to Punta de Este in the off-season? I'm thinking about visitng next month. How is the weather?

Are there any other parts of Uruguay that you would recommend that are not too far from Montevideo?

You ask about the weather... It will be windy, humid and cold, not a good time to go to the beach if that is what you were thinking of. On the other hand, if you like to relax and read a book and run away from the world, it would be a good option because it will be very slow.

It is a gorgeous place, no matter the time of the year.

Colonia del Sacramento, 3 hours drive to the west from Montevideo, should be a must.

If you like horseback riding (and again enjoy quiet places) there are several tourist ranches very close to the capital. My favourite, because the people is great and it fits any budget is a little bit over two hours to the north from Montevideo.

If you want more details, send me an email with specific questions and I will be glad to respond
