From Buenos Aires to Montevideo

by sputnik906

Hi all,

Basically, im on a tight student budget and hope to spend 2 days in montevideo. i will take the barca from buenos aires to go there, but many, many advised me to go to colonia for a visit. as time is limited, I was wondering if its actaully worth my time to stop a bit in colonia, and the price to take a return ticket (say either to colonia or montevideo) is obviously much more economical than for example going to colonia but leaving from MT back to buenos aires. as well, i dont see if there are any bus services (or boat?) between colonia and montevideo. can you help me? I've been trying to book tickets with some sites but have trouble finding a way to get between colonia and montevideo. i'd be grateful for any tips.

I am already aware of sites like buquebus, colonia express, seacat (or something like that).


Best and thanks!

Re: From Buenos Aires to Montevideo

There is frequent bus service between Colonia and Montevideo. You can buy your ticket at the Colonia bus terminal a short time before you want to go. If you check the Buquebus website you can see the different options for yor trip. The prices are in Argentine pesos, not U.S. dollars. What I would do would be to take the boat to Colonia, spend about 2 hours there and then take the bus to Montevideo. If it is financially possible, take the boat back to BA from Mont-
evideo, avoiding the bus trip back to Colonia. Personally, I would avoid going to Colonia. I was there once and was bored after an hour.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Busy Streets

by Bwana_Brown

As you would expect in a city of 12 million people, the traffic can get hectic during rush hours. However, that being said, we never seemed to have much of a problem when we navigated our way through the city via taxis.

If you are touring the city on foot, as we did on more than one occasion, you need to keep your eyes peeled when crossing intersections. The cars assume that they have right of way and sometimes 'cheat' a bit on the lights or change lanes unexpectedly. One last glance over your shoulder is always a good idea!

This photo was taken as we crossed the world's widest street (it cuts a swath one city block-wide through Buenos Aires) on our way back to our hotel from Cafe Tortoni.

LIBERTADOR AVENUE - PART ONE

by RafaelTheSecond

This is another very important avenue of the city, I never know where it begins or ends, but it links the very downtown part of the city at Retiro, or maybe it goes through the harbour in Puerto Madero to the faraway provinces of the capital, if I am not mistaken I saw exactly where this avenues ends in San Isidro, but this is the part close to the Grand Station Retiro where you can see the modern and daring Buenos Aires, the arquitecture is a real avant guard in the south american reality. It can be compared with big city centres as Sâo Paulo in Brazil and Santiago, in Chile!

Garrapiñada Vendors

by sabrina_florida

Another typical scene, and smell, you'll see in downtown is the garrapiñada vendors. Garrapiñada consists of peanuts cooked in melted sugar, so once they're cold, they have a sweet crust around them. You can usually get almonds cooked this way.

The Beaches of MAR DEL...

by MacKiwi

The Beaches of MAR DEL PLATA:

In summer (when Argentines were flush with money) inhabitants of Greater Buenos Aires flocked to Mar del Plata. Situated on the northern Atlantic coast, 400km (228mi) from the capital, beaches in this area sprawl for 8km (5mi), with sophisticated mansions (reflecting the area's upper-class origins) mingling with the new middle-class resorts. Sea lions keep an eye on the fishing activities around the wharves while men keep an eye on other things!!
