What to see in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay - Travelogue

Last December between Christmas and New Year I went with my family to Colonia, Uruguay.  Is about an hour from Buenos Aires going by boat. We stayed for 3 nights but is a perfect city for one day trip from Buenos Aires or one night. Here are some photos I took in our trip:

The city is super small and incredible charming, is about 300 years old and is used to be a Portuguese colony so it has still all the architecture from that time. Every street is so beautiful with the pavers and flower creepers everywhere. As well as that weather is hardly bad at this time of the year, so is always sunny and enjoyable.

In the center of the city you can see the lighthouse next to the fortress. One thing you can do if you are for one day and want to see explore everything faster is renting a golf car (they have it everywhere) but you have to go early in the morning because they run out of then really fast.

It is full of parrillas as well and cute little coffee shops. This was my first time in Colonia and I couldn't believe the beauty of the city, and that is only one hour away!! (that is what i travel to go to work everyday haha)

Portón de Campo

A super nice coffee shop that we found was Ganache, it is located in a quite street and is really cozy.
Ganache Café, Real 178

"Calle de los suspiros" is a must city to walk through, is just next to the lighthouse and the fortress, it feels like going back in time.  
And this is one of the most delicious (and addictive) dulce de leche I ever tried, a nice souvenir to bring back home.

I hope you liked :) Which other one day trip do you enjoy or have you done in Buenos Aires?
