Uruguay Vehicle Rental

Uruguay Vehicle Rental

We will be renting a vehicle in Montevideo for day trips to Colonia and Punta del este.

My question: With 4 adults we would like to rent a larger vehicle, possibly a SUV or van to make these trips, but are concerned that it would make us appear conspicuous as tourists and perhaps compromise our safety. Should this be a concern for us? Thanks for your thoughts on this. Tim

There is no reason to worry about safety in Colonia nor Punta del Este

I agree with zerpaconcept. Anything can happen anywhere, but many rich Argentineans and Brazilians keep their fancy cars year-round in Punta del Este because they can drive them safely there but not at home. We're talking Mercedes SL500s, Hummers, even Lamborghinis and Ferraris.
