Choices include simple mid-range hotels offering standard rooms, and more luxurious fare boasting additional facilities such as indoor pools, bars, and onsite restaurants.

  • Bridge of large, very picturesque linking the cities of Paysandu-Uruguay with Colon - Argentina. The landscape that can be seen is beautiful and even though it is well known that the queue to cross are important, day of week is very quiet and crosses seamlessly. Will be charged $130 Argentine to cross it

  • Surely emblematic because crosses of a country to another with a huge visual, the border is very receptive, was a welcome card to Uruguay

  • Cross it alone, day of week mid morning to know the city of Paysandú and pass by the free shop. Both the ida and the return process was very fast. There was no one. The city-very nice, very clean. Pity that the premises closed at noon because he had spent with the affordable card that had several products (clothing and footwear)! In the free shop we got several things at very good prices compared to Bs. As. Cowboy Santa Barbara 57 dollars, speaker Bluetooth ppr 30 dollars, columbia shoes are managed between 60 and 85 dollars. To take advantage of!
