Buenos Aires - Colonia de Sacramento – Montevideo – Salto - Posadas. Today we leave Buenos Aires and head to Uruguay. The charming riverside Colonia de Sacramento in the southwest of the country is our first destination and the UNESCO listed barrio historico, or old city, is the perfect place to explore the numerous museums and churches.
On day 3 we head to the capital of Uruguay, the time-warped city of Montevideo. With its 1930s buildings and cars, the city offers plenty of interesting architectural styles, historic houses and museums. For shopaholics, the outdoor and indoor markets are perfect for shopping whilst the port and seaside are a treasure trove of steak and seafood restaurants. After one night here we continue on to the beautifully presented town of Salto where you can soak in the local hot springs or visit the aqua park. On day 5 we take an overnight bus to the port city of Posadas.
