    The atmosphere of the historic Uruguayan town of Colonia del Sacramento is a universe apart from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Just a short boat-ride across the Río de la Plata, Colonia del Sacramento is a popular day-trip or weekend destination among Buenos Aires locals (Porteños). A visit here offers an exploratory introduction to Argentina's smaller neighbor through an enticing blend of colonial history, museums and laid-back ambiance. Colonia enjoys a superb location 180km west of Montevideo, perched atop a small peninsula jutting out into the great expanse of the Río de la Plata, standing opposite Buenos Aires. Warm light reflects from its bronze waters creating an effect especially impressive at dusk and only further enhancing the town´s remarkable beauty. Both Colonia's old and modern architecture are now protected as UNESCO world heritage sites. With its immaculate and luxurious parks and gardens, quiet cobbled streets and miles of nearby beaches, Colonia is a relaxing and well-tended place.
