This bus came included in the package we bought through Buquebus. If bought separately it costs approximately $25. There are about 10 stops non of which are that exciting. The one stop that might have been interesting was the bullring, but unfortunately you couldn't go...More

Smooth, all around. Easy ticket purchase and boarding process. Big windows for photo ops. Inexpensive and worthwhile - I recommend this mode of transportation!

I already described this more under Nuevo Colonia but don't waste your money. You see there tiny shopping mall, and go along their little crescent of a beach on the Rio de la Plata with just a single interesting loop to the old bullring now...More
