Uruguay is a nation of tidy European-style cities, expansive cattle ranches, and attractive vineyards. Buenos Aires locals and visitors alike enjoy getaways to Uruguay, just a short ferry ride away. Here are two top Uruguay day trips from Buenos Aires.

Montevideo — 174 miles (280 km) from Buenos Aires
Elegant yet understated, Uruguay’s capital city is surprisingly sophisticated for its size. Montevideo is home to the headquarters of Mercosur (the increasingly powerful South American free-trade zone) and boasts beaches, varied architecture, and plenty of museums and art galleries. Whether it’s a day spent relaxing by the waves or exploring the city’s multitude of architectural styles (from Spanish Colonial to art deco), a trip to Montevideo is sure to impress. Be sure to explore the city’s refurbished historic quarter, Ciudad Viejo.

Colonia del Sacramento — 62 miles (100 km) from Buenos Aires
A day trip to Colonia del Sacramento is a relaxing way to get a feel for old Uruguay. The UNESCO World Heritage Site was founded across the Rio de la Plata from Argentina in 1680. Originally a settlement governed by Portugal, this picturesque village changed hands several times during the country’s rough-and-tumble colonial era. Today its historic buildings and cobblestone streets embody Uruguay’s unique blend of Spanish and Portuguese cultures.
