    I suggest heading to Colonia during the week since you'll find a fair number of boats departing there and cheaper hotel accommodation, if you wish to spend the night there. Colonia is easily reached by a ferry boat or hydrofoil, and multiple ferries leave the Buquebus terminal in Puerto Madero each morning, and the rides range from 50 minutes on a “fast-ferry-boat†to around 2.5 hours on a slower one.

    I suggest getting the slower moving boat to soak in the beautiful views! On your way back, remember that most boats to Buenos Aires leave between 7pm and 10pm
