Argentina Travel and Highlights

Only seeing four places in Argentina, we liked what we saw! Great wines and scenery! Iguacu Falls and the sprawling capital Buenos Aires, wow! Why such a short time? I hear you ask. Well, we landed here in the middle of winter and decided it was too cold, so beelined north into Brasil. Later in the trip, we reentered Argentina into Mendoza from Chile. Unfortunately, we reentered before Christmas and could foresee the prices climbing. This situation drove us toward the much cheaper Bolivia in a quick step. The short time we spent in Argentina was delightful and has influenced our desire to return.


Buenos Aires: A city that never sleeps with a lot happening

Mendoza: Laidback city with wine on tap

  • Savigliano Hostel - Close to the bus station and centre of the city

  • Challenge your balance on a wine tour with a bicycle

  • Mr Hugo Wineries and Bikes The cheapest way is to catch a local bus to Mr Hugo, most hostels can give you directions by bus.

  • Visit the zoo, although lots of these animals seem to be suffering. Pay the entrance fee and hope it goes towards their survival.
