Best time to visit Punta del Este, Maldonado Department, Uruguay?

  • We recommend traveling to Punta del Este in December when temperatures are still warm but hotels are much cheaper. During this month, the nightly cost of an accommodation for two is around $235. That's half of the normal price in January. Temperatures hover in the mid 70s, just a bit colder than the average 80°F you would experience during peak season.
  • In Punta del Este, tourism peaks in the summer and this comes with higher accommodation rates. The Revellion week (December 23rd to January 4th), the Carnaval week (February 5th - 15th) as well as the Semana Santa week (March 24th to April 3rd) are also popular dates that you should avoid if you're on a budget.
