  • The river that is sea! So beautiful. Largo, fort that Orna and all the way to Colonia Sacramento. The RAMBLA is well preserved has stretches to walk or simply sit and enjoy.

  • The famous Rio de Aguas color Leon, is offered without reservation as a landscape from the coast of Colonia de Sacramento. It deserves the ride away and contemplate it. At sunrise or dusk the enjoyment will be full.
