A good idea going to Punta del Este from December 13 to 18?

Hello everyone

I would like to know, if it is a good idea going to Punta del Este from December 13 to December 18? I understand that it is not the high season, but is Punta del Este worth visting even though it is not in high season? I would really like to go, and this period is the only one available fo me, but I don't want to go if the city is boring in this period. :)

Another question: Could someone please recommend me a good, but cheap hotel?

I hope someone can help me!

As you seem to know, Punta del Este's high season runs from Christmas until February.

Having said that you probably have a pretty good time, the weather is getting hotter every day and the prices won't be that high...yet.

Punta's beauty and great weather will be there, and enough restaurants will be open (especially on Friday and Saturday) that you can get a good sampling of what's offered. A rental car is highly recommended, in order to explore all the area offers. It spreads along 4 miles of coastline and goes up to 3-4 miles inland at places -- it's huge.

Can't recommend a hotel because don't know what "cheap" means to you. Plenty of web sites can give you an idea of the range of prices and the locations of the different hotels. If you see one and want advice about it, specifically, post again.

that's the best time to go, in my opinion. February also.

I notice I dropped a zero. The Punta area spreads along 40 miles of coastline, not 4 miles. A rental car is really a must, unless you want to spend a fortune in taxis or wait on the local buses.
