Advice for holiday in January 2008 - house, car etc.

Hi there,

We are going to go to Uruguay for almost the whole month of January 2008.

We'd be happy about advice for:

1) how and where to rent a nice house (with swimming pool if possible) near or on the beach (Punta Colorada, Piriapolis, maybe in Rocha/Cabo Polonia: thing is: we have a baby daughter and the water should not be too dangerous...),

2) how and where to rent a "cheap" car for almost 3.5 weeks,

3) a nice family-friendly spacious hotelroom/apartment in Montevideo for some days,

4) a nice estancia somewhere inland where we could stay for some nights,

5) how best to get to Buenos Aires without losing too much time travelling (ferry vs. plane, I have been told you cannot travel with a rental car to BA) and

6) nice not too pricey place in Punta del Este to witness the buzz for one night...

I know, many questions. Especially 1) and 2) are major issues for us.

Thanks a lot!!!

1) have you tried tienda inglesa online , they are now in the house market also www.tinglesa.com.uy/inmobiliaria/

Punta colorada has a nice beach for going with little kids


I dont know how old is your baby , but remember you dont have electric energy in Cabo Polonio , its very nice but some places lacks comfort

Other way to find a house for rent is by the news , but you have to call etc etc, is a real stress http://www.gallito.com/Inmuebles.aspx

search alquiler / viviendas en balneario

They include photos and some email to contact

2) palermo rent a car : http://www.palermorentacar.com.uy/ or multicar http://www.redmulticar.com/

in january its usually what you could get and not what you want

3 ) relatives from argentina stayed there several times and they told it was very good www.martiaparthotel.com.uy/principal.htm

4) Amazing place : San Pedro del Timote - Florida , there are other estancias in maldonado but San Pedro is part of therural high class history of Uruguay www.sanpedrodetimote.com.uy/

nice trip

im sure you will have more luck than la celeste in brazil match

South America

1) Try www.buscandocasa.com.uy

2) Hertz rent a car - I wrote down the information of my favourite agency:

Mauro Couayrahourcq

Sales Manager

Hertz Internacional Uruguay

Yaguaron 1407 11º Piso Of. 1109

Montevideo, Uruguay CP 11000

 (+ 598 2) 900 9211- 9026188 Int 103-104

: (+ 598 2) 900 9211- 9026188 Int 102

Gsm: (+ 598) 99 180510

 mauroc@cteleservicios.com

 : www.hertz.com

3)I don't know any apartment. but some hotels that I like are: Cala di Volpe, Pocitos Plaza and The Sheraton

4) San Pedro del Timote, very nice place

5)Try going by Colonia and spend a day there. it's a very nice place. Then cros to Buenos Aires by ferry (Buquebus is the best option, see prices at internet)

6) In Punta del Este I recommend Hotel San Marcos, middle prices and nice.

if you have more questions, go ahead!
