Punta del Este to Montevideo MVD International Airport

We are a couple staying in Punta del Este and need to go to the international airport at Montevidio on the evening of January 1. Does anyone have information on how to get there with our luggage from Punta del Este and how much time and money we should budget for? We prefer not to get a hotel in Montevideo for the day so that we can catch the late evening flight as we are planning to be in Punta del Este for NYE. and would like to take it easy all day then go directly to our international flight.

Any advise is much appreciated.

Quick addendum to the previous post. There are two bus companies. All COT buses to Montevideo stop at the airport, but not all COPSA buses do. The service is regular, i.e., about every half-hour one or the other company leaves Punta. The trip takes a little more than 1 1/2 hours; allow for 2+ hours, just in case of traffic -- people going back to Montevideo after NYE in Punta del Este. No charge for luggage. In high season they usually add whatever number of buses are necessary to accommodate the crowds, but it would behoove you reserve ahead, and ask to confirm that the bus you want does stop at the airport.

New Year Day is a major holiday, the biggest.. Nothing happens. If you are planning to take the bus (as would be correct on any other day) you seriously need to check what is available that day, if anything. Look at the web sites. Someone will always drive you by car, but a big price (USD 150 or more)
