Colonia's old historic quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage site and no matter what you read about it being touristy, it's definitely worth the trip.

We took the Buquebus ferry from Buenos Aires, spent a few hours there including lunch, before taking the bus (a luxury coach with free Wi-fi) to Montevideo.

There were hardly any visitors when we were there, so we were very fortunate as I can imagine what a load of cruise ship passengers could do to the picturesque town.

It's a wonderful place where you can simply walk about and admire the historical buildings and gorgeous flowers.
