Colonia del Sacramento on 25 December 2010

Plan to be in Colonia del Sacramento on 25 Dec. Boquebus has several scheduled passages from BA on the 25th so this will not be a problem. Question is whether the car rental agencies, gift stores, restaurants, historic sites, tourist attactions, etc. will be open in Colonia on 25 Dec.?

That will be a difficult day, but, if you ask me, I´d rather be in Colonia than in Buenos Aires. You see, Christmas is celebrated as a big party like New Years. Everybody goes dancing very late that night after having dinner with the family. Buquebus has the busiest day, because it is the beginning of the summer season, people wants to be at the beach for new Years Eve. But you´ll find a place to eat, some shops probably will open, but those run by the owners, because employees will have the day off.

Dont expect museums to be open, but the nature around COlonia is nice to enjoy at that time, specially at the coast; even it is the river, there is enjoyable beaches here, so bring along your swimsuit.

Hi Dozer,

I was about to post the same question. We are contemplating the same journey. I also am considering Montevideo instead. Perhaps we will see you on the ferry!

Due to the holidays of Christmas, New Years, the days before and the days after we decided to postpone our vacation and start it on 5 January. This eliminates all the complications.

January 6th. is another hollyday! (just joking) It is, but not as important as Christmas.

This isn't an answer to your question but merely a suggestion. I guess we are considered seniors too (but don't feel it)..but we decided to take the one hour ferry for the day and return to BA so we don't have to change hotels.
