Colonia del Sacramento

(3.6/5 based on 24,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, museums
Sleepy cobbled streets lined with pastel-colored houses lead down to the water in Colonia del Sacramento. Changing hands between the Portuguese and Spanish conquerors numerous times during its early history, the World Heritage-listed city finally gained some stability when it became part of Uruguay in 1828. In a town of less than 30,000 residents, Colonia del Sacramento tourism is surprisingly well developed, offering the chance to admire some of Uruguay's best-preserved colonial architecture and enjoy all the amenities of a modern vacation destination. When using our Uruguay itinerary builder to make an itinerary online, Colonia del Sacramento holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

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.
