      form to pay reciprocity fee

      Argentina Yesterday

      Thanks, everyone, for the info about getting to the correct travel site to pay the reciprocity fee. I'm confused!
      I entered the Provincia Pagos website and registered.
      Then I received an email verifying that my account has been created. No entry code was included, as per the directions. The only info in the email was my user name and password. There's an X'ed out picture, so no clue as to what that's about...
      The directions tell me to click "continue" the website to complete the process, however when I click on it I loop back to the same directions page instead of a form described where I input my personal and credit card info.
      Has anybody been through the process that can help? I am beyond frustrated.
      Thank you!
      Shari

    • Need info to make appropriate airline reservation from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls

      Buenos Aires Yesterday

      We will be overnight in Buenos Aires and only have one day available to go to Iguazu Falls
      Argentina side. So we can take the flight from AEP to IGR at 5:40 AM that gets in at 7:25 or the one that depart Buenos Aires at 9:05 and gets in at 11 AM. My concern is that the later flight we lose 2 hrs of precious sightseeing time since the park opens at 9AM...but then if we take the earlier flight we have to be at the airport at what time????? in order to make the flight. In that case we may lose sleep time. To me the sightseeing is more precious than sleep as we will not have the opportunity to every go again...BUT on the otherhad if we need to be there hours before then loss of sleep can make us too tired to enjoy what we are seeing. Your recommendations will be most helpful!

    • Read the warnings-Now I am scared

      Buenos Aires Yesterday

      I understand "be ware", but reading the "dangers" section has me downright scared. I am not sure if there are certain areas to stay away from...or if this is directed to normal tourist areas...but it sounded like even the nice areas are suspect. We have not made hotel reservations yet so further information will be appreciated. I never wear flashy jewelry and such and I certainly don't look elite, but that being said, if I am a tourist and want to take pictures I usually will have a camera around my neck and that screams tourist!
      We arrive at EZE in the evening and then our flight to Iguazu is early the next morning (probably the 5:40 am flight out of aep) so I was thinking of getting a hotel near aep airport to cut down the travel time in the morning. Is this an okay plan or do I need to rethink it? What hotel or area do you recommend. We will have large suitcases that we will be leaving with the hotel while we are overnight in Iguazu, so the hotel needs to be reputable. Then the next day we will gly back to BA and stop buy the hotel on our way to our cruise and pick up the other suitcases..so that way we only take one with us for the overnight. Otherwise, we will be traveling with two each plus a very small carryon (with the laptop)...and my husband is 72 years old so I really need to make things as easy as possible for us.

      by klaus1967 Online Now Feb 20, 2007 at 7:34 AM

      Hi all,

      we are planning a trip to El Chalten in March 2007. We bought the useful book "Trekking in the Patagonian Andes" but unfortunately it does not contain any GPS waypoints.

      Could anyone please provide us with the GPS waypoints for

      Laguna de los Tres
      Campamento Rio Blanco / Poincenot / Agostini
      Glaciar Piedras Blances
      Mirador Cerro Terro
      ...

      Thank you in advance ! Any hints for hiking in this area are very welcome.

      Klaus

      hello there,

      i am staying in el calafate with 2 friends, and we plan on hiking in Fitz Roy for 3-4 days. we have contacted several tour companies, and they are charging ~$800 for a private guide. is this expensive, and is there a cheaper way of finding a group to join once we get to el chalten? i would prefer to go with a group.

      short walks in Fitz Roy - El Chaltén area?

      by MariusG Online Now Nov 9, 2003 at 1:51 PM

      We plan a trip to Patagonia in January and I thought to stay, among others, in for a couple of days, and taking several short walks of 2-3 hours each. One opinion that I got says bad idea - all the area is steep, mainly for mountain climbing by experienced sportsman or at least trekkers in good shape; the other opinion says good idea, since there are plenty of easy walks, for all ages and fitness. What is your experience? Any advice will be appreciated.
