    • 10 Days in Buenos Aires

      Buenos Aires Dec 19, 2016 at 2:47 AM

      Hi everyone!

      My girlfriend and I are going to Argentina next March. We arrive on March 16th AM and leave on March 26th PM, so we have ten days there!

      We have always wanted to visit Buenos Aires, so we would like to spend some of these 10 days there, but do you think we have enough time to visit another place? We were thinking of crossing the Rio de la Plata to go to Colonia for a day or two - any advice/recommandation on that? It seems it would be too short for an excursion to Iguazu falls or Patagonia...!

      Also, please share as many tips as you have on Buenos Aires! :) It's the first time we're going there.

      Thanks a lot,

      Romain

    • From Iguazu to Peru

      Argentina Dec 26, 2016 at 7:55 AM

      I'm planning a 3 weeks trip in South America next year, in mid March. The itinerary includes Urguay, Argentina, Peru and Bolivia. At some point we'll be visiting Iguazu Falls then we need to get to Peru (Lima).

      The problem is that the flights from Iguazu Falls to Lima are very expensive so we tried to find an alternative rout for getting to Lima.
      One route that I have in mind is to fly from Iguazu to Salta, then to go by bus to Calama, where we'll take a flight to Santiago then Lima.
      This way we have a chance to visit some of the Atacama main attractions. This segment was not planned and I don;t want to spend too man days because it will shorten our time allocated for Peru.

      In this case what would be the minimum number of days to spend for getting from Salta to Calama? And what is considered a must to see in this area?

      Are there other viable alternatives for getting from Iguazu Falls to Peru?

      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

      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.
