Uruguay for the day

I took my parents over to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay for the day from Buenos Aires. We booked through SeaCat Colonia because it is the same ferry as Buquebus for way less money. Apparently Buquebus bought SeaCat but still has both names.

Upon arriving to Colonia we looked at taking the hop on hop off bus tour but we were told you have to book it when you are in Buenos Aires…whatever. Luckily we spoke to someone in line that mentioned renting a golf cart to drive around which sounded like tons of fun. For $50 you get a golf cart for 6 hours! Needless to say, this was our transportation for the day.

Colonia is very small and quiet but considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The history shows the push and pull for the territory between the Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilians. In the end, no one won and Colonia became Uruguay.

We had a lovely day exploring and climbing lighthouses and overall just having fun.
