Colonia del Sacramento

Colonia del Sacramento lead.jpg

Just a few hours by high speed hydrofoil takes you from the centre of Buenos Aires to the heart of its pretty old colonial centre, Colonia del Sacramento, a perfect taste of Uruguay’s history.

The beautiful old colonial district of the city is a delight to wander about by yourself. Here you will feel immediately in Uruguay as you see most locals sipping their maté from their gourd cups through the day or eating some of the delicious fresh ice cream. Climb up to the lighthouse for stunning views of the city and river, and explore a few of the eight quirky little city museums in the old quarter. Do note that it can get very crowded at weekends, as it is so easy to reach by high-speed hydrofoil from Buenos Aires, but during the week you will spot few visitors along its narrow streets.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
