Colon

Sitting on the western bank of the Uruguay River, the city of Colon connects to the Uruguayan city of Paysandu by bridge. Founded in 1863, the relatively small city of 21,000 has become central to regional tourism, possessing a good number of places to stay and tourist-focused facilities. An itinerary in Colon usually features exploration of the nearby national park and other natural highlights along the riverbanks. Smaller towns in the surrounding area have rich and diverse colonial histories, with a good deal of immigration from Europeans, particularly the Swiss. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Colon and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Colon

The most popular place to look for accommodations in Colon lies between Av. Pres. Juan Domingo Peron and the Uruguay River. Attractive riverfront hotels offer good selections of amenities, including pools, spas, and well-appointed dining rooms. As a rule, head farther from the Uruguay River if you're looking for a budget-friendly option. On the side streets of Colon's main neighborhoods, you'll find a good selection of family-run posadas (guesthouses) and simple hotels offering comfortable rooms for a good night's sleep.
