This is Charles. From Colonia we took a bus to La Barra, which is a vacation spot on the coast. There was no direct bus so we had a short layover in Monteviedo. Also, the bus took us to Punta del Este, which is the larger beach down near where we were staying. We read that we whould take local bus 14 to our town and get off at the second stop.

... most of the bus passengers had gotten off and we were only one of a handful actually going to Punta. Took a cab out to our hotel which was technically in a smalled town called La Barra.
