A half decent lighthouse with a reasonable pano view of the old quarter and the brown waters of the plata waters. Quaint but inspiring...

It has a great view of the city, amazing.
If you are a sedentary person your legs are going to need a rest after climbing all the stairs..

Colonia del Sacramento is a small town in Uruguay only one hour by boat from Buenos Aires.

From theport we were picked-up, by the host of Casa Ganesha and taken to the Countryside.
The accomadation was lovely and the prepared food was plenty and good.
Everyday we were taken by car to beautiful beaches nearby.
All the Spots were great for beginners and intermediate.
The flat water in january was warm enaugh, so no wetsuit was needed. We had steady wind around 15-20 knots and no matter how far you go out, the water was never deep.
The beaches are even in high season almost deserted.

I can really recomend tthe location for Kite-Surfing
(5 out of 8 days the wind was good)

It's nice river view and for little fun you can go upstairs, but as Colonia is small town and don't really have much sight-seeing places, panoramic view is pretty simple.
Other side, ticket is only 1 USD, so why not? :)
I spent around 10 minutes just enjoy water view, I guess it's enough.

It costs almost nothing to get up there, except maybe several stairs... But the view is impressive and you can walk 360° on the top.
Must do!
