  • Today, 09 November 2015, my wife and I have completed 3 years of marriage. I don't know how she managed to get me through this whole time, but anyway, such as celebration wiII be this date is so important, we plan a boat trip on the Rio de la Plata. Upon arriving in Porto Madeiro, site of the yacht, we were immediately very well received by the crew, who treated us with the greatest care possible. We already had heard about the hospitality received in this attraction, but try this was highly inspiring. Lunch offered was better than imaginavamos. Good food, with starter, main course and dessert. The care of Armando, one of garcons, (mozos) was impeccable, attentive, and very polite, not to mention the staff of Darius, which made us very comfortable. The ride itself was wonderful, the vessel leaves Port Log and goes right along the coast of Buenos Aires, until the Estadio Monumental de Nunes (River Plate), and beautiful to be able to see and admire Buenos Aires by water. Anyway, and a walk to move rooms.

Where to stay in Fray Bentos

Traditionally an industrial center rather than a touristic one, Fray Bentos has a limited range of accommodations. Head to the water's edge and you'll find a couple of nice hotels; move farther back from it and you'll stumble across a few simple guesthouses. This will no doubt change in coming years, with the listing of the old industrial factory as a World Heritage Site. Until then, consider looking in the neighboring towns of Las Canas and Mercedes for a wider selection of lodgings.
