Getting around


If flying from Uruguay to make an international connection in Buenos Aires, make sure your flight goes to Ezeiza International Airport (eg American Airlines or TAM), not Aeroparque (almost all AerolĂ­neas Argentinas or Pluna flights). Luggage is not transferred automatically to Ezeiza and you will have to travel one hour between the airports by taxi or bus. If you need a visa to enter Argentina, you must get a transit visa (takes up to four weeks to process in Montevideo), just to transfer between airports.


All main cities and towns are served by good companies originating from the Tres Cruces Terminal in Montevideo (www.trescruces.com.uy, for schedules and fares, but purchase must be made in person and early if travelling to popular destinations at peak holiday time). There are good services to neighbouring countries. A departure tax is charged with every bus ticket. Driving your own or a rented vehicle is a viable way to explore Uruguay, as it allows flexibility and access to further destinations.
is not easy.
