My trip with Colonia Express was on a very choppy day, I'm almost certain that similar adverse conditions would have led to a cancellation or suspension of the service in the UK, but the one thing that made the day better was the attitude of...More

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
