Who in colonia makes or sells outdoor wooden patio tables and chairs?

Re: Outdoor patio furniture

by ranger49

Sorry, I can't tell you the names of any manufacturesr but if you are wanting to buy some go to a good store selling outdoor furniture - they should have a catalogue of available makes and styles in addition to any in stock. Otherwise I am sure Mr Google could help you.

Travel Tips for Colonia del Sacramento

A nice place to spend one or two days

by luciaguimaraes

Colonia del Sacramento is in Uruguai, but if you are in Argentina, Buenos Aires, it´s very easy to get there. It´s a small city, romantic, and nice to walk. you can look at a beautiful view every corner of the town. We had lunch in a very good restaurant named Viejo Barrio, it´s on Governador Vasconcelos street, 169. It´s on the main street of Colonia.

More Miscellaneous Odds 'n Ends

by Wade123

Even in November (Spring), Colonia felt warm and humid. However, I live in a desert area and suffer from humidity when others may not even notice it!
I had some trouble finding an ATM that would except my card. Went to several banks along Av Gnrl Flores before locating some that would cooperate.
There is a quick and no hassle cambio (Western Union) at Av Gnrl Flores 350 where you can exchange your dollars. The ATM exchange rate was only slightly better.
US dollars are readily accepted in Colonia and Montevideo. I saw many things priced in dollars and not pesos, which I thought was odd.
Save a LOT of money by buying your food/drinks in a store and avoiding
restaurants.
Very few internet places in town. Found one at Av Artigas y Rivadaria. Cost 5P for about 1/2 hour.
Avoid buying wine with your meal and save big bucks. It's good, but very pricey. Just walking around in old town, with its old ruins, flowers, blooming trees, cobblestones, riverfront, etc.
Carrying a good tourist map that shows the names of the ruins is handy. Nice to know what you're looking at.

Some General Info for the Visitors

by mircaskirca

On the walk from ferry terminal into town, you come across Colonia's main tourist office. It can be found in a rustic shed on the corner of Avenida General Flores and Calle Rivera and is open Mon-Sat 8am-8pm and Sun 9am-5pm.

phone number: 052 26141
e-mail: informes@colonianet.com

Fortunately Colonia is small enough that you can explore it by yourself. The helpful staff is all too eager to offer maps and leaflets and even a friendly lunch recommendation. Talk to someone from the tourist office if you want a guided tour of the town - they can arrange it as well.

While you can change money on arrivel in Colonia, you'll really only need Uruguayan pesos (UR$) to buy stamps or make telephone call, elsewhere you can pay with Argentine pesos or US dollars; many prices are even displayed in dollars (1 US dollar = 19,7 Uruguayan pesos, April 2008).

The Q's

by acemj

Quaint and quiet is how I'd describe this place. It was a gorgeous day with a blue sky and moderate temperatures. Coming from bustling Buenos Aires with its ubiquitous taxis and ever-present traffic and exhaust fumes, Colonia is literally a breath of fresh air.

Azulejos - Decorative Ceramic Tiles

by mircaskirca

In colonial times azulejos were widely used to decorate walls, windows, floors and even ceilings. Most often they are made from glazed ceramic. Azuejos, the beautiful blue and white Portuguese tiles, appear everywhere in Colonia. Instead of metal signs, even the streets are marked with ceramic tiles. It's delightful.

The names of cafes, restaurants and art and craft shops are written on azulejos and the insides of these places are sometimes adorned with vibrant tile works. You also find several bigger wall decorations around the city, as an old plan of Colonia and Rio de la Plata.
