I traveled with Buquebus to Colonia and then to Montevideo. I have to say that if this company´s objective was to excel at mediocrity, they have certainly achieved their goal. I tried repeatedly to contact Buquebus to no avail and after 2 pm on Saturday their offices were closed. I tried rebooking online and their web site was down for almost two days. Their staff tried to help but it seemed like they didnt have a clue to what was going on. I am unclear as to how a company of this size is just so provincial in their mindset and customer service, which was terribly absent.

We took the public bus from Barrio Historico up to Real de San Carlos, walked to the waterfront and back down the Old Town. Really nice views, lots of small beaches. A few waterfront restaurants, all pretty expensive. Water wasn't as murky as in BA/Tigre, but still didn't seem right for swimming.

On a good day, you can see across the muddy, brackish waters of the Rio de le Plata to Buenos Aires. Not particularly pretty to sail on, it's still worth it to go out on the water. Many, many ships are in the sea lanes, and if the sun is right, it can be beautiful.

Being close to the sea the river has tides. There is lots of small island in it, some with lighthouses. Nice scenery with sailboats. The sunsets are awesome.
