"Colonia - just an hour across..." Buenos Aires Off The Beaten Path Tip by viajera67

Buenos Aires Off The Beaten Path: 212 reviews and 323 photos


Colonia - just an hour across the river on a high speed ferry. Colonia is a small town with a beautiful historic area. Moped rentals are cheap and fun. There are beaches on the river and arts and crafts for sale in the old section of town. I went during the off-season, so there wasn't a lot to do at night--El Asador is always open, and the food and wine are great and cheap.
