... unfortunately I can't help you into possibly joining a group starting for example from Montevideo; a 3/5 days ride isn't however actually too much, at that time I was alone and nevertheless my personal perception of the sorroundings was of very quiet and safe places. Exiting Montevideo you can point north taking the Rambla along the left banks of Rio del la Plata. Punta del Este, La Paloma, Cabo Polonio, Punta del Diablo are surely worth to be visited.
When I've been over there in November 2014 the weather was excellent, food good and overnights very reasonable.
Just to give you an idea here below my stages

09.11.2014: Montevideo [UY] – Piriapolis [UY], 110km/H362m
10.11.2014: Piriapolis [UY] - Rochas [UY], 133km/H770m
11.11.2014: Rochas [UY] - Aguas Dulces [UY], 73km/H358m
12.11.2014: Aguas Dulces [UY] - Chuy [UY], 87km/H290m

HERE ... just in case you want to have a look into the complete trip (... that was a bit longer than just Uruguay ...)
