need a car and driver for January 12-19

I am traveling with 4-6 friends to punta January 12-19. We would like to do sight seeing and go out at night, but do not want to drink and drive. Does any one know of a car and driver for hire that is reasonably priced. We will be staying in LaBArra. It does not need to be a professional company.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

I think you need to get an understanding of what 'reasonably priced' means in Punta, In January.

Cars are v expensive in Uruguay, as is people's time in January. Cars take 4 & driver....anything more is a different vehicle, more expensive etc....

A stand-by vehicle & driver for 6 adults for a week in January would cost a lot, if anyone would (still) do it, safely. Massive hassle, long lines of cars between La barra / JoHo until dawn........

Seriously think about rental & sharing the inconvience of occasional sobriety.

Also do it quick as time is running out / has run out for that size of car & that period.

Sorry to be hard, but Punta is Punta.....

guydog is right.

Or you can talk to a taxi driver when you get to the airport and ask if he would do a special price if you use only his service on the days you're there.
