How best to get from Colonia to Punta?

I will be in Colonia del Sacramento January 12th to 13th. I need to get to Punta del Estes on the 13th. What is the best way to do that. Is there a more scenic bus route, do I have to go back to Montedivideo? Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Definetly you ´ve got to take a bus to Montevideo and from there to Punta del Este. More scenic route could be only be by plane; Colonia has an airport to hire a private flight.

Buquebus runs a ferry-plus-bus from BA through Colonia to Punta del Este. The bus part, from Colonia to Punta, takes an inland route and avoids Montevideo. I do not believe it's possible to buy a ticket just for the bus part of the trip, but you might look into it.

Thanks for the help. Do you know if I would purchase the ticket at the regular bus station?
