La Ramble is an arcing road that runs from Colonia out to Real de San Carlos, about 5 kms. Beautiful well-lit sidewalks, a wide boulevard, beaches, shade trees. Every day, especially on weekends, people congregate all along La Ramble to chat, people-watch, to drink "mate"...More

What a wonderful walk and view of the River Plate! A must for an afternoon mate and or drink at a local restaurant or just a leisurely walk and sit. The sunset is just fabulous as are the numerous cafes and restaurants.....

We've not walked it at sunset, so can't tell, but, again sorry, it's average. The highlight was the old car (still there, surprisingly) of which we took another picture. It was very hot, so walking was an ordeal. There was a small store that sold...More
