Getting to and away from Colonia del Sacramento

Buenos Aires to Colonia

By Ferry

Buquebus offers two affordable and convenient ferry options to and from Buenos Aires, with boats that leave five times a day. There is fast ferry (one-hour trip) that leaves three times a day and a slow ferry (three-hour trip) that leaves twice a day. Prices range from $30 to $76, one way, depending on the class and boat. Colonia Express offers direct services to and from Buenos Aires three times a day Monday-Friday, once on Saturdays, and twice on Sundays. Tickets are $56 one way.

By Bus

There are buses from Retiro bus terminal to Montevideo, but not Colonia. Pullman Gral. Belgrano, El Rápido Internacional, and El Condor Estrella offer daily services to Montevideo, but you’ll have to take another bus to Colonia once you arrive in the capital.

By Air

Pluna and AerolĂ­neas Argentinas offer regular, direct flights from Buenos Aires to Montevideo. One-way tickets start at $79 (Pluna) to $154 (AerolĂ­neas Argentinas). You'll have to go from the International Airport Carrasco to the bus terminal at Tres Cruces and take a bus to Colonia from there.

It is very easy to leave or access Colonia by bus from either eastern or western Uruguay. Bus companies like Cot and Turil offer several daily services to and from Montevideo, as well as smaller towns like Nueva Helvecia (Colonia Suiza), Carmelo and Nueva Palmira.
