Iguazu falls to Colonia Del Saremento in Uraguay

Is there a bus that you can pick up from the falls that take you to Colonia Del Sacremento?

Or is it possible to get off the BA bus at either Gualeguaychau or Concordia cross the border pick up a bus or car to get you to Colonia Del sacremento.

Probably easier and faster to continue to BA and take the ferry to get to Colonia.

Just did this trip day before yesterday by Buquebus airlines: Iguazú to Montevideo in 3 hours, 1 hour to the bus station and 2 hours Montevideo to Colonia.

zerpaconcent,

Could you explain? "Iguazú to Montevideo in 3 hours" Is this a flight from Iguazu to Montevideo? If so, why 1 hour from Carrasco to the Bus Station? It seems awfully long for Carrasco to Tres Cruces. Thanks

I'd be quite interested in my next trip to Montevideo to do Montevideo/Iguazu if there is a direct flight.

By the way, how much does it cost for that portion?

OK, it is a new line, and it is offered as a package by Buquebus, and I really couldn,t say how much the flight is, because they sell you the 3 hotel nights, meals, excursions to the falls both sides, day tour to Paraguay with Itaipu electricity power plant, all togheter as a package. Leaves on sundays 8 AM returns wednesday. It was OK, you see everything you must see, and you also get some free time for your own plans. The time it takes from the airport to the Bus terminal, actually depends on the bus schedules, but we took a cab and it was quite expensive. We had a bus to catch to Colonia, and we were just on time to the 8.30 PM Turil at a speed of 120 KPH on some parts. This was a really enjoyable trip to the falls.
