A different Saturday: visiting the cute little Colonia in Uruguay

A different Saturday: visiting the cute little Colonia in Uruguay

Monday April 18, 2016

Last weekend we went to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay with a group of students from our Spanish School AMAUTA Elebaires. We took the boat at 08.00, very early, because check in was at 06.30! We arrived in Colonia around 09.30 after a very bumpy boat ride.

We wanted to go to a restaurant near the beach, and we found a very cute place to hunker down for lunch. Unfortunately the lunch didn´t start until 12.00, so we decided to wait in the lounge outside the restaurant with some coffee and tea.

At 12.00 we finally got to order our lunch. I took a while, but it was definitely worth the wait because it was absolutely delicious! In total we spent 3 hours in the restaurant, quite a long time haha! (more…)

Op slechts 1 uur vanaf Buenos Aires: Uruguay!

7Ik wist al dat Buenos Aires heel gunstig lag om weekend tripjes te maken naar de andere mooie delen van Argentinië (zoals Iguazu, Puerto Madryn, Mendoza, La Plata, Bariloche), maar nu heb ik ervaren dat het ook nog eens ideaal is om een dag of weekend tripje naar Uruguay te maken! Er zijn verschillende bedrijven die boottrips naar Colonia del Sacramento en Montevideo aanbieden. Binnen 1 uur kun je dus al in een ander land zijn, hoe tof is dat?!

Uruguay, a sólo 1 hora de Buenos Aires.

Yo ya sabía que Buenos Aires está perfectamente ubicado como para ser el punto de partida de muchos viajes de fin de semana a otros tesoros de la Argentina (Mendoza, Iguazú, Bariloche, Puerto Madryn, La Plata), pero ahora he experimentado que también es ideal para hacer una excursión de un día o de un fin de semana a Uruguay!
Hay varias compañías que ofrecen excursiones en barco a Colonia del Sacramento y Montevideo. Lo impresionante es que ¡en tan solo una hora se puede estar en otro país!

I already knew Buenos Aires is perfectly located for many weekend trips to other treasures of Argentina (Mendoza, Iguazu, Bariloche, Puerto Madryn, La Plata), but now I experienced that it is also ideal to make a day or weekend trip to Uruguay!
There are several companies that offer boat trips to Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo. Within one hour you can be in another country, how awesome is that?!
