A short ferry ride across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires is the small Uruguayan town of Colonia del Sacramento, founded in 1680 by Portuguese settlers. Arriving mid-morning, you begin first with a visit to the historic city centre, the museum and the coast, heading up to the Real de San Carlos neighbourhood and its bullring. Then you will have free time to have lunch in a selected restaurant and to explore the town at your leisure.

An alternative trip to Uruguay takes you to the capital, Montevideo. The city is a combination of the coffee shops of the mid-20th century and the large houses and patios of Hispanic inspiration. You will visit the old historical parts of the city and its main attractions, such as the Rambla and Plaza Matriz.
