Cruise Stop - Best way to get to Casa Pueblo

Our cruise will be stopping in Punta del Este in late January, and aside from walking through the town, we would like to visit Casa Pueblo, and also the Ralli Museum. We may also want to visit the Arboretum Lussich if we have time.

We do not want to rent a car. Is there a hop-on-hop-off bus that would take us to these attractions, or do we need to take taxis? Also, what would be the cost of a taxi to these places?

Thanks for your help.

Also, does anyone know if there are van size taxis that could be shared by several couples?

Thanks again for your help.

Do you have an estimate of the cost of a taxi? We would probably go first to Casa Pueblo and then to the Ralli Museum before returning to downtown Punta del Este.

Also, does anyone have an address for the Ralli Museum? We have searched online and have not been able to find an address for it.

milu. I hope that you can answer three more questions (in addition to my question about whether the HOHO bus stops at the Ralli Museum and Cass Pueblo) for me.

1) Where do we buy the tickets for the bus?

2) Do they accept US$ or Argentine pesos?.

3) Is Parada 3 the bus stop at the corner of Avenida Chiberta and Rambla Claudio Willimen?

Thank you so very much for your help. The HOHO sounds perfect for what we want to do in Punta del Este.

You can check stops at this site , it goes to both Rally museum & Caspueblo, that is why is so convinient, the name of the bus is cultural bus so it stops near all main cultural atractions.

They told me its running every hour , not 30 minutes

busculturalmaspunta.com.uy/index.php/recorri…

Im not sure if they accept dollars, or argentinian pesos , I call but i have no answer, I'll keep checking and let you know

That is great information milu. There are 7 of us who are definitely planning to use the Cultural Bus. The website was very helpful.

Thanks so much for all your help. We really appreciate it.
