Nothing happening in Punta until after Christmas??

Hello,

We (4 single guys/gals) were planning on going to Punta del Este mid-December, but heard that there's nothing going on until after Christmas. We don't need it to be crazy busy, but we also don't want it to be completely dead .... can anyone let me know if there will still be some nightlife/activities to do, and can you recommend what area we should stay in?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Milu,

Thank you very much for the information. Can I ask you two more quick questions?

1. We want to stay at a centrally located (to bars, restaurants, beach) hotel and have chosen the Golden Beach Hotel ... is this a good choice?

2. We are flying in to the Punta airport at 9:00 at night - how would you recommend we get from the airport to the Golden Beach hotel - is it safe to take a cab?

Thank you again!

Hi there

Hope I'm still on time to help you guys.

1. Golden Beach is a good choice in terms of location. The hotel also has a pool, which is nice since the water can be quite cold.

2. Punta is a very safe place. Just get a cab at the airport and you'll be fine.

tip: There's a pub that will probably be open called Moby Dick, right on the Pier, that it's quite nice.

Have fun on yout trip!
