Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 10.59.47 AMBackpacking in Uruguay was quite a surprising experience, there were so few other travelers it’s was unreal. Generally speaking, the main places to visit in Uruguay are Montevideo, Punte Del Este and the beautiful Unesco town of Colonia Del Sacramento – a three hour bus ride from Montevideo.

The old city is a beautiful, cobbled-stoned labyrinthe and the entire town is sitting right on the coast of the South Atlantic. I was traveling with Anthony from Man Vs Clock, so we were splitting costs. That meant one thing – hello a bit of luxury. We had read reviews online we organised to stay at the  Costa Colonia Riverside Boutique Hotel. For just over 50 bucks a nigth each we were living it up.

 

LUXURY

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 12.15.30 PMThe Costa Colonia is a high-end boutique hotel, really sleep finished, complimentary breakfast and gorgeous spacious rooms. The decor is super modern and it gives off the perfect amount of suave style to remind you that you’re living staying in luxury, but still manages to retain the essence of a boutique hotel.

The room wasn’t huge, but more than adequate and the quality of the bed was top noth, something I haven’t found regularly across Latin America. Super comfortable pillows, chunky duvet and air-con – I’m not leaving that bed in a hurry.

LOCATION

The location is right on the water front, so it’s a fantastic place from which to wztch the gorgeous sunset on the Rio de la plata every day. It’s about a twenty five minute walk frm the UNESO centre, but it’s a really nice walk across the water front.

If you come in the summer season, then the location is absolutely perfect. Less than ten minutes walk from a beautiful swimming beach, yet stil close enough to the old city to wander in and drink some amazing Argentinian wine – you can see Buenos Aries from the water front, so so close.

FACILITIES

This is where the Costa Colonia really came in to it’s own. Unfortuantely, I was in Uruguay during their ‘winter’ so it was a little chilly. That rendered their beautiful outdoor pool, facing the waterfront, unuseable.

At check-in though, the receptionist told us to check out the basement – and we did just that. A gorgeous heated pool, with mini waterfall and a sauna. It was amazing. Every evening I was down there for at least an hour. It’s the first time I’ve come across a boutique hotel which covered facitlies for both seasons – nice touch guys.
