Planning a few days in Colonia/Montevideo

We are planning a trip to Argentine/Chile in late December and are wondering about taking a few days at the start to go from Buenos Aires to Colonia/Montevideo and possibly farther west. Any advice about number of days in each, things to see and do, and places to stay will be appreciated. Thanks!

1. Re: Planning a few days in Colonia/Montevideo

Hello Squeaky, first advice is, if you are going to Chile first, you can fly from there to Montevideo and avoid to pay the reciprocity fee collected only if you enter Argentina in Ezeiza. Once in Montevideo as a basis, you can make day trips to a winery, to Punta del Este (at that time of the year, probably more than 1 day if you like the beach) and afterwards take a day or two in Colonia, for the historical disctrict and some farm. Then you can take the ferry from Colonia to Buenos Aires.
