That Colonial Feeling

The Barrio Histórico, or historic quarter of Colonia del Sacramento is a lovely place to walk the streets and slow the pace of life down a bit. Various cafes and restaurants to relax and spend some time at before discovering an antique car or walking up to the top of a light house as you discover this charming South American city.

Even though the historic quarter is super touristy, I have to admit I enjoyed the day trip out to Uruguay. It's not crazy crowded like major European cities, but given that the city was founded in 1680, you still get that sense of history as you walk the cobblestone streets.
