Bombinhas to Montevideo to Buenos Aires

After a very relaxing week in Bombinhas, we were on the move again....
(we are getting a little sick of moving, can you tell?)


Waiting for our taxi before 6am
This is the route we took:

1) Bombinhas to Porto Belo
(taxi 40 BRL which is a lot but this was pre-organized as we were leaving early in the morning)






2) Porto Belo to Florianopolis
(Catarinense bus - about 16 BRL each for 1.5 hours bus ride, very comfy though..)
Buying tickets at Porto Belo bus sta.

All the way at the back..
3) Florianopolis to Montevideo
(Pluma bus to Porto Alegre, it took about 7 hours. 4 hours wait at the Porto Alegre bus terminal then another 12 hours bus ride with EGA to Montevideo - Cost approx. $100 per person)

A long way...

And a night stay in Montevideo, Uruguay........

4) Montevideo to Buenos Aires
(by Buquebus ferry, 3 hours, about $78 each - there were cheaper options (Colonia Express & Seacat)  but they require bus AND ferry, we couldn't be bothered with bus anymore!)
