    Hi - I'll be riding into Montevideo region from Buenos Aires (ferry) in early October. Would be great to get pointers on some great rides - day trips or overnight rides around Uruguay would be great. Am staying at family summer home close to Punta, and aside from some errands in Montevideo for 1 day, I have 5 or so days of riding available to get to see Uruguay in a way in which i've never seen it.

    gracias

    There's a very nice hot springs and campground just north of Salto, Termas del Rio Arapey, really lovely spot. I was there during the early season not many people there. Looked like it could get crowded.

    En octubre recién entra la primavera (comienza el 21 de setiembre). Normalmente la mejor época es enero y febrero (verano). La mayoría de los sitios turísticos están cerca de la costa y no es mucha distancia para recorrer ( 500 kms.)

    Aquí en Montevideo no he visto. Pero en Maldonado (donde está Punta del Este) sé que alquilan escúter y motos también (Keanu Reeves anduvo recorriendo en una Harley alquilada) pero no conozco la Empresa.
