Take a day trip to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. It's real easy. Organise a package that includes the ferry, the tour and the meal all for one price (oddly enough, drinks alcoholic and otherwise are not included). Colonia del Sacramento is the first place Europeans settled in present day Uruguay. It was owned by both the Spanish and the Portuguese, they fought over it and the Spanish won it. Colonia del Sacramento is a good day trip to take that is a change from the hurried city life in Buenos Aires.
