first time in uruguay

Hello everyone. My husband and I are planning a trip to Uruguay in August. We are not party people. The purpose of the trip is possible part time residency in the country in the future. We'd like to visit Colonia, Montevideo, Punta del Este, and Rocha. We like the beach. We'll be looking to see what area is ideal for us to live. What do you think is a realistic time frame for the trip? 2-3 weeks? What would be the most economical way to do this? I've been shopping around for good prices on flights/hotel/car rental; and reading forums. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Anna

Hello Anna, 2 weeks should be enough, but it's always nice to save more days in case you find a place you like and want to explore it in detail.

The bus service is cheap and punctual, all over the River Plate and Atlantic coasts, but renting a car is also cheap and more convenient as in Maldonado and Rocha attractions are scattered all over.
