Buenos Aires to Montevideo via Colonia Sacramento

There are a few things to keep in mind.
Change your money in Argentina! In Uruguai your official dollar from the ATM becomes half price so you loose half your money!
Also, don’t take the Boque bus all the way to Uruguai. You can buy a ticket just for the boat ride to Colonia, spend a couple hours there and then buy a ticket for $12 to Montevideo. Buses run every half hour or so with many direct buses. This is cheaper and offers you a way to see Colonia. Bus station is next door to the ferry terminal.
Finally, do not exchange money at the ferry terminal. You can get 10-25% better exchange rate a short walk way at the bus terminal or many other places in the tiny town.

Hope this helps!
