Ferry to Colonia del Sacramento

We will meet up at your chosen time at Puerto Madero Sur in Buenos Aires, from where the ferry to Colonia del Sacramento departs. Once onboard, you will sail across the River Plate to one of the first colonial cities in South America.

After a journey of an hour and a half, we will arrive in the historic Uruguayan city which you can then explore at your leisure. Declared a World Heritage Site, Colonia is full of colorful houses, art galleries, and cobbled streets which you can stroll through.

You can discover the mixture of Portuguese and Spanish colonial architecture, as well as investigate its history by admiring the Gateway of the Citadel, also called the Gateway of the Country, or the Street of Sighs, the hallmark of Cologne.
