As far as I know you have to go firstly to the bus terminal (Terminal de Las Cruses) close to the downtown area of Montevideo, where you have several buses companies to Punta del Este almost every hour.The trip last about 2 1/2 hours.

But you can take the bus at the very airport. There is no need to go to Tres Cruces, because the bus departs there, passes by the airport, stops, and continues to the east.
