Duration: 2.5 hrs
Details: As the bus terminal in Punta del Este was a convenient fifteen-minute walk from our hostel, this was a quick and pain free trip. We had decided to buy our tickets the previous day (to avoid previous complications!) so we turned up with 10 minutes to spare and jumped on the Copsa bus and headed for the Capital. The bus had free wifi, so we spent the two hour bus ride catching up with friends back home who were impressed that we were en route and speaking to them on the move. We arrived in Montevideo in the early evening and made the 20 minutes walk through the city centre to our Hostel Buenos Vibras, or 'good vibes!'.
