Hoping to spend some time in Uruguay and maybe celebrate New Years Eve! I'm open to a variety of possibilities from spending a couple of days....to renting a car and driving to a few different places ie. La Paloma, Colonia, Punta del diablo sharing costs accommodations and or couchsurfing. If anyone out there is interested let me know. Happy New Year, Tiffany

Hi John,
I don't have an exact plan but would like to make one :) I was hoping to leave for Uruguay on the 29th or 30th and spend NYE there. Every one says Punta del Este is great but I would be just as happy in a more remote less expensive location. I would like to see Colonia drive along the coast to la paloma a few other places and finally up to Punta del diablo. I would also like to see iguzu falls except many Argentians say the best view is from here.

I know you can rent a car in Uruguay. In not sure where; im going to look for one now. I only speak a little Spanish. I have prepaid car insurance already and would like someone nice to travel with who is willing to share some of the costs. Let me know your thoughts and if there is any chance you would want to leave a couple of days early. If not I can wait until the first of January.

Do you have Skype? My user name is tiffheil and my email is tiffheil@gmail.com add me and we can chat :)

Tiffany

Thanks,
Tiffany

Hi tiff,
My initial idea was to pass NYE in punta del este, but right now it was very expensive. It is the reason I am going there after nye. Do you have idea about how much you will pay in pta?
I added you in skype.

Not sure John. I have a ticket to Rio on December 31st so assuming I can find a place to stay I will spend NYE there :)

About the expensive thing, you shall go to Piriapolis, and there's another place near to Piriapolis, that isnt too expensive, but the only thing about it is that you'll be needing a car if you want to go to many places,
Anyway, as I said before I'm leaving in that Ferry in two days, if anyone of you is going on the same Ferry, You will surely find me on the deck playing my guitar or taking pictures, so, hope to find some of you on saturday!

Hi Nicolas,
Thanks so much for the offer to meet up. I'm going to spend NYE in RIO DE JANEIRO since I have a place to stay and a return flight. Wishing you a wonderful new year and happy holidays!
