Views 27 Ago Trips to Colonia del Sacramento (Uruguay)

A nice option for those who need to renew their tourist visa in Argentina, and for those who are looking for a nice day or weekend trip just outside Buenos Aires, is to cross the ‘Río de la Plata’ by ferry, and visit the city of Colonia, in Uruguay.

The city of ‘Colonia del Sacramento’ was founded in 1680 by the Portuguese, and in the 17th century it was an important centre for smuggling British goods across the Río de la Plata into the Spanish colonies.  It is now an attractive and quiet place, with a nice historic center and beaches that are worth a visit.
