    Beautiful landscape that we can not see from the Argentine side. Very clean and quiet, of course you places to eat or can drink.

    The old breakwater of Club, maintains the charm of its construction. Sailing ships can be seen entering and leaving and it is a delight amid the comings and goings of tourists that colony.

    No Cologne if you visit at the docks. A moment of relaxation, to enjoy the breeze, the Sun and the landscape.

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.
