    The trip was excellent! My partner and I arrived at the port in Buenos Aires and I was attended to precisely. The crossing was smooth, and the bus left on time. In short, a smooth and pleasant trip.

Montevideo Transport: Ferry + Bus

At your selected time, you'll set sail from Buenos Aires port on a fast ferry. 1 hour 15 minutes later, you'll dock at the port in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, where a bus will be waiting at the terminal to drive you to Montevideo. The journey by road to the Uruguayan capital takes 2 hours 30 minutes.

Having reached Montevideo, you'll be left to explore the city at your own pace. We recommend strolling around Plaza Independencia, or Independence Square, home to some of the capital's most emblematic monuments including the Solís Theatre and the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Don't miss the Mercado Agrícola, Montevideo's historic market, the El Prado neighbourhood, the Playa Pocitos beach and the Estadio Centenario, a must for fans of South American football!

At the end of your time in Montevideo, make your way to the Tres Cruces Terminal in General Artigas Boulevard to catch the bus back to Colonia del Sacramento, where you'll take the ferry back to Buenos Aires.


  • Departures from Montevideo bus station: 5 am, 7 am, 1 pm, 2:30 pm and 4:45 pm
  • Departures from Buenos Aires ferry terminal: 8:30 am, 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, 6:30 pm and 8 pm

When making your reservation, you'll be asked to indicate whether you wish to return to Buenos Aires on the same day or up to 90 days later.
