Buquebus question
I was in Montevideo in October and took the bus to Colonia and the Buquesbus on to Buenos Aires. I was visiting a friend there (who is presently traveling all over SA and a little hard to contact), and she arranged everything, so I didn't pay much attention to how things were done. I am returning next week, but my husband and I are going to BA first and then on to MV. I would like to take him by way of Colonia. The Buquebus has a combination ticket for bus and boat, but I cannot tell if we would have layover time in Colonia. Should I book this, or should I take the Buquebus over and just buy a bus ticket when we get there? Also, I know she bought our Buquesbus tickets in advance. Do I need to do that, or can I go to the Recoleta office and book when I get to BA? Thanks.

The above should help.

Have a great time in our country and with our Uruguayan brothers.

Thank you. I am familiar with the site, but I do not find a place that tells me if I book with Buquebus including bus, if the bus leaves immediately, or if we would have time to have time to perhaps have lunch and look around a bit.

I don't really know. I would imagine that the bus leaves right away, but perhaps you can take a later bus.

Thanks. I will go to office when I get there and see what I can arrange.
