      Best side of the Andes

      Argentina Yesterday

      I am planning a trip by car in October-November in Argentina and Chile, and I am thinking of arriving to Cueva de las Manos from Peninsula Valdez and then drive north to Atacama, passing by Barilloche et Mendoza on the Argenitina side and Puerto Montt and Santiago on the Chilean side.
      The doubt is whether it is nicer to drive between Cueva de las manis and Barilloche on the Argentinean side and then cross in to Chile, or to cross into Chile south and then enter Barilloche area and tour it.

      Then I have the same doubt, i.e. is there anything worth seeing between Barilloche and Mendoza, or is it better to go back to Chile and drive to Santiago and then go to Mendoza from there.

      I am quite experienced in driving in Argentina, having already driven more than 10.000km there in the north and extreme south, and given the cost of car drop-off, I am not interested in using planes or other means of transport, except maybe to cross the lakes (but is it possible to take the car across to Chile that way or is it only for pedestrians?)

    • Lost original birth certificate of my daughter

      Argentina Feb 3, 2015 at 11:16 AM

      Hello everyone,

      My girlfriend and her daughter live in Argentina. Now we have the following problem, she lost the original birth certificate. In a few months she wants to fly with her daughter to me (Netherlands) and she needs the original birth certificate. Now my question is as followed, is there any way she can still fly to the Netherlands?

      If she has a copy of the birth certificate is there any way to make it official? If so, what are our options?

      It would be a devastating blow to me and her if she is not able to travel to the Netherlands. So please someone help me. I have looked around the internet but my spanish isnt that great so I'm not sure what the rules are in Argentina for the matter. Please help us!

      Thank you all

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

      by wrecklaw Online Now 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?

      Help Please!?!

      by Melissa_in_Florida Online Now Nov 11, 2006 at 10:05 AM

      I am going to MdP at the end of November to meet up with my husband. I am wondering what type of clothes to bring with me. I don't want to stand out too much, but I am a casual type of girl. I love to wear shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. I don't usually care TOO much about what people think, but I don't want to embarrass my husband. I do own a couple of dress outfits and some dress shoes so I do like to dress up too. I don't know what the temperature's going to be like, as we are still warm here in Florida so I don't yet have my Winter wardrobe. I hope somebody can please help me, as I need a lot of help and have LOTS more questions!!
      Thank you in advance!
