Enjoying Colonia's nature and rural ranches

Colonia offers a charming experience in nature unlike any other, attractive and varied in nature, offering several options for rural tourism. Enjoy a typical “asado con cuero” (Uruguayan barbecue, cooked within the cow's skin) or other Criollo delicacies. Visit tourist “tambos” (milking yards), go on a horseback ride and breathe in the fresh and healthy air around you, all while appreciating rural tradition.

The rural establishments of Colonia combine agro-tourism, healthy living, ecology, Criollo gastronomy, and rural traditions. A beautiful coastline extends from the Real of San Carlos (historic bull-fighting arena) to the Anchorena Park, containing noteworthy areas like Barrancas, a perfect place to spot fossils from the Marine Era.
