With our brief visit to Uruguay we got a good taste of the accommodation choices offered in Uruguay. In Colonia del Sacramento, our hostel was in an old colonial house including creaky wooden floors, old colorful tiles and a sunny courtyard. Our next home was a cozy family home in Montevideo filled with hanging plants, where we had access to their kitchen and dining room, all decked out in Uruguayan style.
Uruguay is usually not the first country you think about when you think of visiting South America. So of course we had to visit it when we had the chance. After a couple of days in Buenos Aires, we hopped on a ferry with destination Colonia del Sacramento, just 1 hour away. Colonia del Sacramento was the first stop for our short Uruguayan break.
