... ones for a 'smoother' journey? We navigated the bus system of Buenos Aires, which is a massive car park as the traffic spends more time idolling than moving, before making it to the ferry terminal. Here we found a free hot water dispenser and quickly fished out our cups, milk powder and tea . . . If only to make ourselves appear more human, it didn't improve the smell, we're sorry to says, as people gave us a wide berth. The ferry was 1.5 hours late and by ...
... bursting with history. Colonia changed hands from Portugal to Spain many times between 1680 and 1822 with several battles and treaty's until it became part of the independent country of Uruguay. We took a walk around the 17th century cobblestone streets, saw the city gate and wooden drawbridge, climbed the lighthouse where we could see amazing views of the Buenos Aires skyline before we settled in a bar on the seafront to watch the sunset.

TravelPod Member ReviewsColonia Suite Colonia del Sacramento
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!
