Montevideo to Colonia to Buenos Aires

We will be traveling from Montevideo to Colonia and hope to spend a few hours in Colonia before taking the ferry to Buenos Aires. Is there a place where we can store our luggage for a few hours while we're visiting Colonia? Do we have to be concerned about getting a ticket on the late afternoon ferry to Buenos Aires from Colonia?

In Colonia´s bus terminal you can store your luggage. Ask the guard if your suitcase is too big to fit into the lockers. Next to the terminal (exiting, immediately to the right) you´ve got the port, where you´ll departing to BA. My advise is to get a ticket in advance, you can do it online. Good luck.

Zerpa is right--you can store luggage at the Colonia bus terminal or the ferry station. If you book the Buquebus bus+ferry connection, they'll store your luggage at the ferry building before loading it on the boat. Make sure you tell them which boat you're on.

Unless travelling in the peak late Dec--late Feb time frame, don't worry about pre-booking: buy tickets on the spot. The late afternoon departure is a ferry "rapido sin bodega" (meaning no space for cars) and consequently almost always seats available.

If the "late afternoon ferry" from Colonia to BA is the one at 5:30 p.m., it does indeed have bodegas for cars. We've taken it about ten times in the last 2 1/2 years, most recently yesterday, with our car every time. It is a rapido (one hour) as mentioned.

I will be in Montevideo from Dec 13 through 17th.

I would like to take the bus to Colonia on the morning of the 17th and spend the day there.

Then I plan to take the late boat from Colonia to Buenos Aires.

I am staying in Buenos Aires from Dec 17 through Dec 22nd.

Question: How to get from Montevido to Colonia on the 17th?

Should I buy a ticket in advance for the trip from Colonia to BA? Will they take a credit card?

Please respond to MsLALanza@aol.com

Thank you
