Día 3  Colonia del Sacramento

Why not going for a day trip to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay?

Located just a one-hour ferry ride from Buenos Aires across the “de la Plata” River, it is really easy to squeeze in a one day visit from neighbouring Argentina.

Originally founded by the Portuguese in the 1600s and named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995, Colonia has become a must-visit destination for all travelers who fancy old historical towns with charming centers. The historic quarter of Colonia del Sacramento rewards those who make the trip with colourful facades, vine-draped shops and palm-fringed boardwalks.

This full-day trip to Colonia from Buenos Aires is the perfect activity to escape for a while from Argentina’s bustling megapolis and explore Uruguay’s shining star.

The tour starts early in the morning as the driver picks you up from your hotel and takes you to Buenos Aires’ ferry station. After going trhough customs (note that passports are required) you board the ferry for a comfortable and pleasant 1 1/2 hours ride across the widest river in the world crossing the international border between Argentina and Uruguay.

Upon arrival you meet your guide, and a driver takes you all to the gateway to the historic quarter where your walking tour around Colonia’s old town begins. During the 2 hours walk, as you get to visit each of the city’s landmarks, your very passionate, attentive, informative, knowledgeable, and helpful local expert with outstanding English skills takes you on a journey back in time, bringing what you see to life with their live commentary full of background information, facts and insights that you will not be able to find in any book or travel guide.

After your tour and with a better sense as to where everything is in the town, you are given free time to explore the town on your own for the remainder of the afternoon or have lunch at one of the many local restaurants.

At the designated time, the driver picks you up and takes you to the ferry station for your ride back to Buenos Aires, where another driver is waiting to drive you back safely to your hotel.
