Uruguay, Colonia

Uruguay - Colonia

Colonia is the city you arrive in when entering the country for Buenos Aires in Argentina by the Ferry. The ferry is called Buquebus (www.buquebus.com.uy). It is about 50$cdn to make a one way trip between Colonia in Uruguay and Buenos Aires in Argentina. For a little more money you can have the fast ferry (rapido). The fast service takes three hours while the regular service takes 1 hour to cross.

Note that Uruguay uses respect daylight saving time during summer while Argentina does not. The consequence is that during summer there is one hour difference between the two countries while in winter they use the same time.

On arrival you will have to go through cutoms just like in an airport. The Uruguay custom agent will give a little a piece of paper which you should keep with your passport to be able to leave the country later. Don't use it to light a camp fire as I did, you might have to pay an extra charge when leaving Uruguay.
