A day or overnight trip to Colonia Del Sacramento in Uruguay is a great way to spend your time, if you have some free when you are in Buenos Aires.
The boat ride over was quick and entertaining, as there were a group of musicians travelling as well and they had an impromptu concert on board.
A short walk at the other end will bring you to the historical town with its old cars, colourful buildings, cobblestones and tiny museums.
I spent 2 days there, wandering round, eating meat, drinking wine, watching the sun set from rooftops and soaking up the sun in the park.
