#1 of 33 in Nature in Uruguay
Feel your stress melt away as you walk along Rio de la Plata, the estuary where the Uruguay and Parana rivers meet the Atlantic Ocean. Known for its churning, muddy waters, the estuary serves as the final drainage point for a staggering amount of water from across South America. You won't see much in the way of tourist attractions as you stroll, but the area makes a great place to clear your head among pleasant nature. Put Rio de la Plata into our Colonia del Sacramento online route maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Place to spend a few hours, rest, watch the Rio de la Plata and reflect on life. For anyone who takes mate is a great place.

  • Several boats leave from there. The wooden pier gives it a unique atmosphere. It's all very well maintained.
