      kayak trip from Bariloche

      San Carlos de Bariloche 3 hours ago

      dear travelmates,
      Together with my husband I am going to come to Bariloche next month, October and we are planning an exciting tour with lot of hiking and most of all kayaking. Our plan is to travel bvy kayak the river Limay and the Rio Negro all the way down to the sea. First we thought about bringing our own kayaks from Spain but the cost to transport them would be higher than what we have paied for them in the first place... now we have checked out some shops but I would rather like to get a second hand one. Does anybody know about a place where we could get 2 second hand kayaks or can anybody get us in contact with somebody?
      We already counted in to stay about 2 weeks in Bariloche to get all or stuff ready but maybe here we can find somebody to help us.
      all the best
      Monika and Gustavo

    • Couple's trip to Buenos Aires and Mar Del Plata

      Mar del Plata Sep 11, 2014 at 6:57 PM

      We're headed to BA in November with 4 nights in BA and 3 in MDP. Any advice, suggestions or tips would be appreciated as it is our first trip there. We're African-American, in our forties and relatively healthy/active. We are not novice travelers and fairly adventurous; we've traveled throughout Europe in the past but wanted to try someplace different. Our hotels are Park Silver Obelisco(BA) and Riviera (MDP). I particularly need guidance on beaches in MDP. I want to relax under an umbrella with easy access to bars and music, with some time in the water. Are there private or restricted beaches that would offer these things without being packed in like sardines? How much should I expect to pay for such?

    • Volunteering at a hostel

      Argentina Aug 11, 2014 at 4:09 PM

      Hi guys!
      I am planning my gap year and I've saved money for flights, insurance and the odd beer :). My aim is to travel across Europe and then later go to Latin America. However, I am also looking at ways to save money to extend my trip for as long as possible.

      Having spoken to several people who have travelled a lot, they said I should consider volunteering in a hostel. So I help out at the bar/reception/cleaning etc and get accommodation in return, which sounds awesome! Anyway having scoured a few websites, has anyone used HelpX or Worldpackers?
      HelpX (www.helpx.net) costs €20 or something for access to their hostel community. It's nothing compared to what I save on accommodation costs. There is also Worldpackers (www.worldpackers.com), which looks free and they seem to notify you when a hostel has a vacancy going in whichever country you may be travelling to.
      Would really appreciate some feedback if anyone has used either?!
      Cheers,
      Steve

      Where is the best place to exchange american dollar for argentinian peso? I heard that the exchange rate is much better on the "black exchange" rather than machines. Where does someone go to exchange in Argentina? Preferrably around the EZE Buenos Aires airport.

    • Do Taxis/ Remis take mastercards?

      Buenos Aires Jun 17, 2014 at 12:25 AM

      Hi, soon I will be arriving in Buenos Aires, but I'll only be there for one night before continuing to Uruguay. I've got a hostel in Monserrat, so I need to:

      - Get from the manuel tienda leon bus stop to my hostel (catch a taxi from there)

      - Get from my hostel to the Colonia Express terminal in La Boca via remis

      I was just wondering if I'd be able to pay by debit card in the cars? If not, would it be possible to get change from $20 American bills? And if not that, how much would you think I would need to get from an ATM in the airport? Thanks!

      Argentina - a good travel route

      Argentina May 13, 2014 at 4:33 AM

      Hi all,

      I plan to visit Argentina in November (don't know if a good period) and that's first time in South America.

      I am aware that distances are very long but would refrain from taking internal flights. I researched a bit and except of Buenos Aires I'd like to visit Mendoza and perhaps Chile?

      Do you know some other places that are must-visit's, not too far away though? I know Patagonia and Ushuaio Falls should be the top but they are too far away for a coach ride.

      Feel free to add any tips/share your experience - it will help me decide.

    • Brazil/Argentina trip

      Puerto Iguazú Apr 21, 2014 at 7:51 AM

      My wife and I are both british citizens. We are travelling to Rio, then planning to travel to Iguazu on our way to Buenos Aires. We would like to visit both sides of the falls, but we're coming from Foz du Iguacu Airport on a Friday and then travelling out from Puerto Iguazu Airport on the Monday (intending a day for each side of the falls). Is it better to stay in a hotel on the Brazilian or Argentinian side (we do not intend to stay at one of the more expensive places near the falls unfortunately). If we have just come from Brazil is it easier to stay there and then travel over just for our day trip to the Argentine side and then our trip to the airport on the Monday, or are we better to cross the border when we arrive on the Friday and nip back into Brazil for the day? We would rather stay in one hotel for the duration.

      Is customs a reasonably straight forward job?

      Does anybody know how I would get from Puerto Iguazu to Iguazu Falls (Argentinian side), and also the next day I will be visiting the Brazilian side, where would the best place be to visit next in Brazil? I am planning to travel through all of Brazil so preferably somewhere close to Iguazu Falls to start off with, also would you recommend visiting other places around here such as Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, etc. Thank you!
