During high season, busses can get cramped and full. It's good to book your trip at least one day in advance. If you need some help to book your ticket, contact us and we make a reservation for you. The main bus station where busses leave in Montevideo is Tres Cruces. You can consult the prices and timetables on their website. The bus trip takes about 4 to 5 hours from Montevideo. The fastest connection is with the bus company COT. Hop off in Castillos and take a taxi from there to Valizas (330 pesos). It's a bit more expensive but it saves you a lot of time.
From Barra de Valizas there are bus services to Cabo Polonio (15 minutes), La Pedrera (40 minutes), La Paloma (50 minutes) and Rocha (1hr). There are also busses running to Punta del Diablo (50 minutes) and Chuy (1hr).
If you really want to travel independently, and especially during low season when less busses are running, a car rental is the best option. Discounts are applicable when paying with a credit card, a law of the governement to promote tourism in Uruguay makes this possible. Contact me
