What is the cost for bus transportation and three nights at 3 star motel in Puerto Iguazu for trip scheduled to start in Cordoba on July 2nd and end in Cordoba on July 7 or 8?
What is the best method of transportation from the airport to a hotel in the city center? Will I be able to change U.S. dollars to Argentine pesos at the airport when I arrive on a Sunday evening?
It seems to be very difficult to make reservations for busses from COR to BA. I had no problems with all the other cities in Argentina. COR and BA are both big cities, it's weird that I can not find a good bussdrive to BA. How is it possible? Am I overlooking something?
Or maybe I should cut the trip in half? From COR to Rosario and then BA? Or would you advice the train?
I would really apprectiate your advice!

I met a friend in Bolivia who had travelled through Argentina, and he was constantly raving about empanadas and steak in Argentina. So my question is, where in Córdoba can you get the best empanadas and the best steak?
Some friends and I are thinking on going to Cordoba for New Year's. Is this a good idea? Is there a special celebration/party/place worth visit during this time? 28dec-3jan. Also can anyone recommend a good clean hotel for us, nothing luxurious, just comfortable and clean, around three stars or so.

Hey, I am looking at spending a few days in the province of Cordoba. We're planning on arriving on a Thursday morning in the capital city, and then traveling to Alta Gracia and then La Cumbrecita.

I want to jump on a bus, go to Cordoba, drop into a hostel and enjoy my time. Then, when I feel like it, jump on another bus and go somewhere else. No hassles wanted, but am I just dreaming?
In a more clear form: Are reservations necessary for buses and hostels?
I would appreciate any light you can shed...
Can anyone recommend a good Spanish school in Cordoba? We're looking for individual lessons for 1 week, and hoping to pay about 8 USD an hour or less.
I'm in the process of planning a 3 or 4-week trip to Argentina and am interested in attending a language school and living with hosts. I'm looking into the school option not simply to help my beginner-intermediate Spanish skills, but mostly because I have done the school thing twice in Spain (Seville), and I thought it was the best way to meet many people right away, have a place to live, learn the culture and know the place from more of an insider's standpoint.
In any case, I'm considering Cordoba as my #1 option because it's smaller than BsAs, yet still a good sized city. I so loved my experiences in Sevilla which has a population of only about 700,000 - I guess my starting point is comparing it to that size and seeing what info I can gather. That said, here are some questions:
1. Some say to skip Cordoba as it is very industrial, while others say not to miss it. What do people mean by "industrial" in Cordoba - that it's a whole city filled with smog and factories, or that there are simply areas like this? There's industrial stuff in every large city it seems, but for some reason Cordoba gets singled out for this.
2. I love side trips to see beautiful natural features of a place, but at the end of the day I want to come back to the city. I'm a museum/restaurant/music type of person as opposed to an outdoorsy/adventure traveler. I'm looking for enough cultural things like this in a place to keep me busy without being completely overwhelmed by traffic and tourists. With that in mind, is Cordoba a good choice for me?
3. Mendoza has been another thought I had, but I'm thinking it might be too small to spend a whole month in with the interests I have. Is this accurate? I love wine, but the only wine country I've been to is Napa and I was bored with it after a couple days. I hope I'm not offending anyone - it's very beautiful of course, but I didn't find much to do beyond touring vineyards.
4. I'm in my late 30s, so I'm a little less crazy than many foreign language school students. Of course I love an occasional drinking and dancing all-nighter, but I'm looking for single people that are perhaps closer to my age and/or with interests are a little more varied. Again, is Cordoba a good choice?
5. I'm not set on when I'm going yet - I would love to miss most of the cold weather, but also miss most of the tourists. Advice?
Any suggestions are so appreciated.

In December, we plan to spend 3 days in Cordoba as we heard it is a colonial city, and enjoy historical areas.
I was hoping to find some nice older hotels with some charm or personality, but online all the hotels I've found look like big modern glass boxes. Are there any nice lodgings in or near Cordoba that are unique? Also - we thought me might find some points of interest in smaller towns outside Cordoba ...are there some day trips or small towns in the vicinity we should visit?
Could you please tell me what dates in 2006 does the oktoberfest in villa general belgrona start and finish?

I will be traveling to South America next year for about 12 months. I would need flights from Lima/Peru to Cordoba/Argentina in July, from Cordoba to Santiago (or another Chilenian destination, depends on where I get my internship at) in November 2006 and another ticket from this Chilenian destiation to Rio de Janeiro in February 2007. I know that travel agencies don't have fares for 2007 by now.
Would you recommend booking all those inland flights while I'm already in South America? Would you recommend using a multiple-city-ticket or to by one-way-tickets instead? Can you recommend a good but cheap airline that serves the destinations I want to fly to?
Thanks so much for your help!
