      Argentina Apr 15, 2014 at 2:19 PM

      I am planning a ski trip in September around Mendoza and/or Bariloche, but I am not sure how the snow condition and the weather there is. Will ski resort already close in the mid-September? How about the backcountry skiing in September? Hope there is someone could give me some suggestions.

      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!

      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!

    • 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?

Some advice to stay there, a maximum of 10 days, or shorter if it is possilble to fly from the tip of SouthAmerica. Say me your experience! Thanks.

      Ushuaia Sep 2, 2013 at 11:50 AM

      In October, is it a must to have a tour pre-booked and paid for?

      I was thinking about getting there and choosing whatever suits me most. I´m sure it´s gonna be the Beagle Channel and of course the Parks and Museums. If we do the from a long distance it´s normally costly and does not really guarantee the best choice. What´s the routine for new comers?

      HI, I intend to go on a cruise in the Beagle channel, I think it's about 3 or 4 hours. It's probably the catamaran one. Do we stay in the boat all the time? Or hop out into the water while getting ashore to visit seals etc. I'm wondering if I need to buy high boots or if I can get away with hiking style lighter shoes.
      I'm going to be in Ushuaia in early November.

      Hi,

      I am interested in taking a boat tour to Penguine Island in the Beagle Channel from Ushuaia. Does anyone know whether the penguins will (already)be there in early-mid November? Or do they only come to nest there later in the season?

      Any recommendations which company to choose? I would like to go on a small boat with just a dozend or so people. I heard that such tours are offered, but on the Internet I only found the tour on large catamerans...

      Thanks very much for your help!

      Hello,

      As I'm searching around for lodging for one night Feb 18, I found out most are sold out. Among those still available yet reasonably priced (less than US$130), seems like every hotel requires climbing steep hills for 10 minutes from downtown or 100s steps.

      Can anyone recommend anywhere with a reasonable price without having to climb hills or steps?

      Thanks.

      Hotels / Guesthouses in December 2010

      Ushuaia Apr 21, 2010 at 5:11 PM

      We will be in Ushuaia this December (December 30 to be exact) and have been trying to book one night's hotel stay for three. I have have had no luck - either I'm told the hotel is booked or I get no response (I've tried both online booking and emailing the hotel/guesthouse directly). We don't want to pay an arm and a leg if we don't have to, so I haven't got all the way up to the most expensive places, so that's probably my next option. Am I going about this the wrong way? I know we're going during the high season, but it's still 8 months off (I started looking for rooms over a month ago). I just can't believe everything is really all booked up. Anyone have any leads?

      Feasible 16 day journey Ushuaia- B.A by public transport? Or return to Ushuaia?

      Ushuaia Dec 15, 2009 at 3:45 AM

      Hi all!
      I’ll be in Tiera del fuego and Patagonia during February 2010 for 16 nights and I’m thinking to travel by public transport from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires, stopping in major sites in Argentina and Chile on the way.
      My main interests are: nature, glaciers, hiking, wild life (valdez?), perhaps lake district, anything special…
      It will be just me, and budget terms is my only choice, so cannot get a tailor made tour etc.
      Wondering if it is feasible to get a good look of the place in this time frame... since it is such a big space.
      If anybody could suggest a more suitable journey, or send any tip, please be my guest!
      Plan –B could be, to do as much as possible within T.D.F. and Patagonia and return finally back to Ushuaia and fly to B.A. instead of overland.
      Any ideas on the above will be a big help!
      Many thanks
