Need help with Buquebus

by lynnjm52

I am trying to make reservations for 4 people to depart Colonia for BA in January 2010 and I can't go any farther than the web page after I select "outbound only". Does anyone have any information to help me complete the reservation? We have heard that due to the time of year we need to make reservations in advance. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

There are other choices. Try "Colonia Express" (fast boats to BA) hope they will have a web page for reservations.If not useful write to me at ramario59@gmail.com
mayby I can do the buquebus reservation for you locally. I live in montevideo and work as tourist guide.
Cheers.
Mario

Thank you Mario. I have tried it a few times and no luck. Maybe it is too far out to make reservations. I checked your web page and we are interested in working with you for at least one day trip. Do you also offer pick-up at airport? Do you have an e-mail where I can ask you additional questions?
Thanks for the info.

Travel Tips for Colonia del Sacramento

Common Ticket for Seven Museums

by mircaskirca

You will discover the colonial history of the city by visiting seven small museums. They are situated in Barrio Historico and can be visited in a couple of hours. This little museums consist of just one small building which are worth having a look, with a couple of exhibition rooms inside.

For your convenience, there is a common ticket which enables you to visit all seven museums for the price of 25 Uruguayan pesos (1,25 Us$, December 2007): Museo Municipal, Museo Indigena, Museo Espanol, Museo Casa de Nacarello, Museo del Azulejo, Museo Portuguese and Museo y Archivo Regional.

You start on Plaza Mayor where Museo Municipal and Museo Portuguese are located. Here you can also buy the ticket.

Museums are open daily 11:30am - 5:30pm.

Don't Book the Ferry Inclusive package

by XKuger

Colonia is such a small town that the only important thing to see there is the old colonial town. It is only few blocks from the Boat Pier.

The Day trip and city tour that they take you on is almost worthless. They take you thru some housing colonies and show you some dilapidated stadiums and the beach with is almost not worth seeing.

The restaurant where they offer a buffet is terrible with very little vegetarian selection and the food isn't that great even if you order stake.

So the additional money that you pay for the tour is really worthless. I shoud have known better. Most definitly The beautiful colonial town has to be my best memory. Its also a nice place to spend a few days laid back.

Very very cheap.

Picturesque

by acemj

The historic district is located at the southwestern corner of town right on the coast. It's really a great location with the water and quiet lanes and historic buildings. Plaza Mayor is the heart of the district where I snapped this picture of a tree covered in lichens (sometimes likened to an "old man's beard"). The scientific name for those green, stringy things is Usnea (thanks to andal13 for letting my know that!).

On the edge of the water

by acemj

But what kind of water is it? I asked Andrea and she said that there is a bit of a debate about that. In Buenos Aires, the Argentinians will refer to it as a river, but not in Uruguay. It's really more of an estuary, but in most of the literature I've read it's referred to as the Rio de la Plata. Actually, if you look on a map you'll see the Rio Uruguay comes from the northwest and where it widens near Colonia it is called the Rio de la Plata which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.

Yerba

by VolsUT

Yerba is a tea like drink that is drank from a gord with a silver straw. Most of the women put sugar in it but the men do not. I had to had to be a girl and put the sugar in it because otherwise the taste is intense.
