If you've been anywhere in Colonia, then you've been on, in, over, through, around, or maybe under Avenida General Flores. This main drag strip runs from the old town at one end to the more modernized city at the other end and has just about all the conveniences of modern life, including banks, bars, grocery store, cambios, etc. Necessary!

Avenida General Flores is the main street in downtown Colonia del Sacramento...but besides a few restaurants, there is nothing else there that attracted my attention.

If you don´t know what to do in Colonia, this is a good place to start, yo will see markets, an hospital, some banks, but there is nothing outstanding here, after walk here you should go to the barrio historico.

It is a long and important avenue for the Colonia town, but the worst of the beautiful Colonia town can be seen here. Run down restaurants, some dirty sidewalks... You won't probably have to go there eventually, but there is nothing special or worth to see.

Av. Gral Flores is the main avenue of the town. It's rather noisy and it has all the stores and some restaurants. There is not much to see there, but it's okay to walk through it if you don't have much to do.

I liked the look of the street and the drivers (what few there are) are extremely courteous to pedestrians

If you walk this street up and down, you'll see a wonderful transition between a growing and bustling new metropolis, and a quaint and peaceful ancient cobblestone ghost town. It's quite an experience, and it's best to try to do it as though you were a local. Peek into every nook and cranny, and you may just find a hidden... More

This is the main thoroughfare of Colonia and takes you from one end of town to the other. Along it you will find many businesses, shops, restaurants and bars. Some of these restaurants were much more reasonably priced than those in the old city. It is also the place to catch the local buses to go up the coast. It... More

Mush of this commercial street is outside of the official historic city boundaries. When you're tired of walking on cobblestones, come here to find a place to rest those tired feet. Lots of sidewalk tables to choose from to watch the world go by.
