transportation to Paysandu

by svasger

I will be travelling from Buenos Aires with ferry to Colonia del Sacramento and would like to continue to Paysandu. Is direct bus or train transportation possible?

Best wishes y gracias por adelante.

Hi,
I know there's a bus doing that route but I don't think is a direct bus. I may stop in manu cities and small towns along the way and it also continues to Salto.
There's no train, that's for sure.
I will search the web trying to find more info, timetables, prices, etc. and I'll let you know.
Regards,

Rafa

Re: transportation to Paysandu

by rafscab

Well, I found something.
There's this bus (Agencia Central/Chadre/Sabellin) going from Montevideo, stopping in Colonia and continues to Bella Union with another stop in Paysandu.
There are 2 buses daily: 1) departs 5.55am from Colonia, arrives 12.15 to Paysandu; 2) departs 14.30, arrives 20.45.
Good luck,

Rafa

Travel Tips for Colonia del Sacramento

Sunsets in Colonia

by barryg23

The sunsets in Colonia are spectacular and as good as any I've seen before. A popular place to catch the sunset is at the western end of the old town, from where there are good lookout points over the sea. There are some cafes here too where you can watch the sun go down with a cold beer, but most people just gather on the promenade. Another popular spot to take it in from is the top of the lighthouse in the old town, though you have to pay a small entrance charge for the privilege.

VT meeting

by andal13

Meeting Mark, of course!
We spent a nice sunny afternoon, wandering around and having a chat... I was not a good guide, because I did not visit Colonia del Sacramento for a looooong time, but I hope he also enjoyed the stroll...

¡El encuentro con Mark, claro!
Pasamos una tarde linda y soleada, caminando por allí y charlando... No fui una buena guía, dado que no visitaba Colonia del Sacramento desde hacía muuuuucho tiempo, pero espero que Mark haya disfrutado el paseo...

Tourist Info office

by mvtouring

They have two tourist info offices and I was extremely amazed at the fact that neither had staff on hand that could speak any English. I was interested in finding out about tours around the area, but all I got was some very blank stares and "no English"

Lovely Portuguese Style Architecture

by mircaskirca

Colonia's geographical and political location caused more than a century long struggles between Spain and Portugal. As a consequence of these conflicts, the city changed its owner several times. The result is a distinctive architectural blend of Spanish and Portuguese culture.

Lined with cobbled streets in Portuguese style architecture, Barrio Historico, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is reminiscent to Alfama district of old Lisbon. The colonial Portuguese style of buildings, those stone houses with typical roofs of those times, mixes up with brick houses and the classical flat roofs of the Spanish architecture.

The historic district of Colonia looks like a city frozen in its colonial past. Different from the Spanish colonial sites, this charming Portuguese settlement with its winding cobblestone streets and colourful homes is a delight to explore.

Old Street Lamps

by mircaskirca

Colonia, a jewel of colonial time, is today renowned for its windy cobblestone streets, with the names of them written on tiles, and lined with colourful houses, from which hang old street lamps.

Night-time becomes pure magic simply by walking around this quaint town which is even more enchanting in the moonlight and the ambient dim light of old street lamps. These picturesque colonial style lamps certainly give the tree lined streets a special glow and evokes the atmosphere similar to that 200 years ago.
