  • The place is well decorated, and has different types of fish and water turtles. The background music is perfectly accompanied travel. It may seem somewhat reduced, but if your interest is not superfluous, as it is a very nice place to visit. At the end of the tour there is an interactive room that brings into play your knowledge. The entrance is from $U50

  • The Aquarium is located in the Centre, close to other attractions, and is good for those who have time left in Cologne, or for those who are with children. Admission is 50 pesos. Aquariums have nothing impressive, some species of fish in the region, but the ambiance is nice, and the Museum has some interactive features that teach about the names of the fish, on the River Uruguay, and at the end has a room with educational games about the nature and the pres ervação of the environment. In the output has a cute little souvenir shop. Don't expect anything amazing, but it's fun for the kids and have a nice purpose nature awareness in the region.

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
