While in BA, we took a day trip to a town in Uruguay called Colonia. Pretty nice place. The old town is a UNESCO world heritage site as it all looks pretty much as it did when it was a Portuguese colony that was attempting to rival BA for dominance of the River Plate region. It was nice to spend a day there, any more than that would have been overkill.
Side note, there is a 1 hour time difference between Uruguay and Argentina. This becomes important when you don't know this, the ferry company doesn't tell you this, and you almost miss your ferry back to Argentina as a result.
