Though technically a separate country, a quick trip to Uruguay is a must for visitors spending any length of time in Argentina. Those staying long-term in Buenos Aires are forced to make a pilgrimage every three months over the border in order to renew their visas. And considering the proximity, even people just visiting for a few days can take a day trip over to Colonia, returning to Buenos Aires in time for a tango dinner show or a night out with friends. All this to and fro between the neighboring countries is made possible by the efficient and modern Buquebus, a collection of ferries and buses connecting Buenos Aires with Uruguay’s three main coastal destinations, Colonia, Montevideo and Punta del Este.

Colonia Uruguay day trip from Buenos Aires.When planning a trip to out of Buenos Aires, there are a few options that make perfect day-long excursions. Perhaps the outing that has the most contrast to the hustle and bustle of crowded downtown Buenos Aires is the little coastal town of Colonia, Uruguay.
