Spent time around Colonia before our 5:30 ferry ride back to Argentina. The Uruguayan Peso is a little more friendlier than the Argentine Peso. It's currently about 19 pesos to the Dollar, when we were last here is was about 23. However, Uruguay isn't having the same fiscal issues as Argentina so prices aren't as high. If you plan to stop by just …
Today we took the high speed ferry, Buquebus, over to Uruguay. It's a one hour trip with a one hour difference in time zone, you lose an hour.

How has this b&b rated in the past?
Property is centrally located between the port and old town Colonia. There is only a small sign in the door and you can easily do what we did; stand across the street and not see it. My only critiscism of the place is that they need a bigger sign to designate its location.
The room that we had was almost the entire top floor, very quaint, charming and rustic. The breakfast in the morning was well prepared with coffee, warm milk, breads, meats, cheeses, and pastry.
After seeing the room and the property we wished we had booked two nights intead of one...HIGHLY Recommended!
