Buenos Aires – Colonia del Sacramento
The atmosphere of the historic Uruguayan town of Colonia del Sacramento is a universe apart from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Colonia enjoys a superb location 180km west of Montevideo, perched atop a small peninsula jutting out into the great expanse of the Río de la Plata. From your hotel you will be transferred to a ferry where you’ll travel across the gorgeous bronzes waters of Rio de la Plata to Colonia. Upon arrival you will meet your guide for a city tour of downtown Colonia. Afterwards you’ll take a walking tour of the historical half of Colonia, a designated UNESCO World Heriate site alongside it’s more modern half. After the tour, you’ll be free to shop, walk throughout the city, and exploring the nooks and crannies of Colonia. In the afternoon or evening you may depart by ferry back to Buenos Aires.
