Booking Early

  • Peace of Mind: Settle your travel arrangements early, leaving more time to plan your visit and explore the diverse attractions of Colonia and beyond.

Driving in Colonia:

  • Road Conditions: The main streets of Colonia are in good condition, but since it's a historical town, many streets are cobbled. This can make for a bumpy ride at times, especially in the Barrio Histórico (historic district).
    Traffic Flow: Traffic is generally light, but it can get congested, especially on weekends and during tourist seasons.
    Parking: There are public parking areas available in and around the town. However, parking in the historic district can be challenging due to its narrow streets. It's advisable to park outside and explore this area on foot.
    Driving Customs: Drivers in Colonia are generally courteous. Since it's a tourist spot, local drivers are accustomed to visitors and are patient. Always yield to pedestrians in the historic district.

Recommended Vehicle: A compact car or sedan is typically the best choice for navigating Colonia's streets, especially if you plan to stay mainly within the town. If you're venturing into the countryside or nearby beaches, consider a more robust vehicle like an SUV.

Nearest Airport: The nearest international airport to Colonia is Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay which is approximately 210 kilometers. The primary route is via Ruta 1. This highway is in good condition and is straightforward, offering a pleasant drive with views of the countryside. The journey typically takes around 2.5 to 3 hours.
