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.
