      North Argentina

      Argentina Apr 1, 2014 at 12:12 PM

      I'm planning a three weeks journey to north Argentina from the end of July and beginning of August.

      I'd like to visit Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Iguazou and Alta. In Iguazou I'd like to visit also the Jesuit Mission in Argentina, Brasil and Paraguay.

      Any suggestions how long to stay in each place? Is it safe to travel alone renting a car?
      Any information/suggestion is welcome.

      Thanks!

    • New Year's Eve Mendoza or Buenos Aires

      Mendoza Oct 24, 2013 at 1:23 PM

      My husband and I, along with his best friend will be in Mendoza around New Year's Eve. We have an apartment that we rented from December 26th - February in Buenos Aires but decided to make our first trip to the wine region. I can't really find any events going on in either place. Should we stay in Mendoza over New Years and if so, what is there to do?? Or should we fly back to Buenos Aires?? We aren't looking for anything too crazy, but enjoy celebrating New Year's Eve in different countries so we really don't want to celebrate by ourselves. Please help!!

      I am planning to do a bike tour of the Vineyards of Maipu late December. I have a couple of questions regarding that:

      2. Are there any Vineyards that are an absolute must see?

      Biking in August?

      Mendoza Mar 25, 2011 at 9:58 PM

      My friend and I are thinking about visiting Argentina in late August. One thing she really wants to do is to take a day tour biking to visit the wineries. I know August will be winter in Mendoza, but what is the temperature like? Will it be good biking weather or will there be snow on the ground? I did a quick search on the Internet and the temperature seem to range from 6 C to 22 C, so I am a bit confused now. Also, would you describe the region to be an easy biking trip or would it be rolling hills like (say) Tuscany?

      Are there other activities you can suggest for us? Like cooking classes or other non-sports activities? (Friend made it clear she won't go horseback riding, so that's out.)

      Thanks!

If I come in on Friday at 3pm and want to spend a day in Mendoza, when will the bus leave to take me to BA? Ideally if I came in at 3Pm on Friday, I would l leave Sat. night. at 10PM and arrive Sunday evening about 6PM. Does this sound right?
