While Buenos Aires and Argentina are popular vacation destinations, significantly fewer people visit next door neighbour, Uruguay. This is a grave mistake, but we know readers of Luxury And Boutique Hotels won’t make that mistake!
Most of the small number of people who do make it to Uruguay just visit on a day trip. A ferry ride across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires will take you to Colonia del Sacramento, a pretty little UNESCO town. Here you’ll find UNESCO ruins to explore, a lighthouse to climb, pretty streets for strolling, cafés for lounging, and spectacular sunsets over the widest river in the world. Staying a few days in Colonia is essential, or you’ll miss the charm of this pretty town with a seaside feel.
