      Luggage storage

      Colonia del Sacramento Jan 3, 2012 at 5:52 AM


      I am due to be travelling around South America next month and part of the itnerary means flying into Montevideo and then travelling from there to Buenos Aires via Colonia (2nd week of March).

      We intend to catch the bus to Colonia and spend a few hours sightseeing, before then catching the boat the final part of the journey to B.A. However, as the 3 of us will be travelling with all of our luggage then we don't really want to have to drag it around Colonia.... does anyone know if there's a place to store luggage safely for a few hours? Alternatively, is it possible to check-in our luggage for the boat in advance of actually getting on the boat?

      I've read that if you're going from B.A. to Montevideo, then you can store it for free in the bus terminal prior to catching the bus... but I hadn't managed to find anything that confirms you can do a similar thing when going in the opposite direction.

      Any advice or other similar suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks in advance,

      I was in BSAS 2 weeks ago and made the trip to Colonia, it was pouring rain so we ducked in a Parilla right off the little park square across from the church and just a few doors down from the antique cars. Does anyone know the name of the restaurant? I am not a drinker at all, hadn't had a drink since I was 21 , and Im 47. But had the most wonderful wine there... it was Pueblo del Sol, and it was a rose... I would like to find out how to purchase it?

      Day trip from Bs. As. - how long?

      Colonia del Sacramento Sep 14, 2007 at 12:04 AM

      Hi there,

      I was thinking about visiting Colonia as a day trip from Buenos Aires via the "fast" Buquebus. Probably taking the 11:15AM boat and coming back on the 5:30pm boat.

      Is this enough time or should I try to take the 8:45am boat to have a little more time?

      Do you need to purchase the tickets in advance or do you just show up at the port?

      I´m planning a trip to Argentina and Uruguay on July. I´m planning to stay 3 and 1/2 days in Uruguay (1 in Colonia and the rest in Montevideo). I´ll spend the first days in Argentina, so I´m planning to take the ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia.
      My question is: What is the best option? To sleep in Colonia 1 day or just spend the day there and go to Montevideo in the end of the day?
      Is there a place to leave my lugagge if I prefer to spend the day there and go to Montevideo on the same day?
      Thanks for helping!!!
