Colonia's old historic quarter

November 24th, 2012

I am always seeking out UNSECO World Heritage sites. I also love walking and find myself drawn to trails, pedestrian zones, or any route I can do on my own two feet.

The great thing about Colonia is that is is very accessible from Argentina. If visiting, you do customs in Argentina and then board the fast ferry to make the 45 min journey across the Rio de la Plata.

Many people make a quick day trip of it, but I suggest coming in the late afternoon and staying overnight in one of the many quaint, cute lodging options right in the Historic Quarter. Or better yet... visit more of awesome Uruguay!
