Colonia is all very low-key but there are some nice historic places to stay in town and some more modern hotels outside the centre. Restaurants are not hard to find but the cuisine is generally unimaginative although the location and ambiance can be excellent.

As an avid day tripper, I found Colonia del Sacramento, Uraguay an easy hop away from Buenos Aires, Argentina by high-speed ferry. Very worth spending a day there.

Colonia is a beautiful 17th-century colonial town just across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires. The historic district has been very well preserved. It's a great place to spend a night or two and relax after the excitement of Buenos Aires.

This gorgeous, quiet little town is usually the destination of travellers in Buenos Aires who have to leave Argentina to get their passports re-stamped, but Colonia is well worth a visit for any traveller.
