Do we need hotel reservations in October?

My husband and I will be traveling to Argentina and Uruguay at the end of October.

We are planning to take the ferry across from BA and rent a car and drive along the coast and spend 3 nights.

Do we need to make hotel reservations ahead at that time of year? Sometimes we like to see where the day takes us and find an interesting place to stay.

I think you wont have any problems during that time, except if you are planning to come on a weekend, especially if you'd like to stay in Colonia, because many Argentinians and uruguayans go there to relax.

I don t think, there will be a big problem to find a hotel, because you will have a car.

Yes oct the 12th is holiday, but nothing is crowded like in July.

If you feel better, you make a reservation for the first night.

Or you accept the Bouquebus-offer and go by bus until Montevideo and start the travel there.

Colonia is nice, also Colina Suiza, but then until

Montevideo is not that much to see. The most interesting is going east starting from Montevideo
