My biggest dream has always been to travel all the way from Buenos Aires to Tierra del Fuego and then up to Santiago... by car.
I have about 5 weeks to do this and ideally I would like to include Peninsula Valdes, Ushuaia, Torres del Paine, El Calafate, El Chalten, the area around Bariloche and then cross into Chile and visit the area around Puerto Montt, Chiloe and then up to Santiago/Valparaiso.
As I know I can't pick up a rental car in Buenos Aires and leave it in Santiago, I was…

Hello, everyone. I plan on climbing Mt. Aconcagua this coming December. I'm hoping I can receive some suggestions/advice on a good tour company to go with. I'm not looking for anything luxorious, fancy or expensive. I've done a few high altitude treks(kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, etc), but Aconcagua will be the biggest and hardest I've ever trekked. I will be on a budget, so I'm hoping to find a reputable company that won't be too expensive. Any tips and or advice will be greatly appreciated…
I'll be traveling to BA next month for 3 weeks, and I'm super-excited! I've never been.
At any rate, what are some "do's" and "don't do's" you'd suggest for a first-time visitor to BA (and Argentina in general)?
Can anyone advise me on the best way to go from Buenos Aires to Iguaçu falls? The bus tickets are quite expensive, aprox 150 pounds with return ticket.
I read in another forum someone saying you can go to Ciudad del Este in Paraguay and buy the bus ticket to buenos aires and that will be cheaper (more than 50%) than buying in Argentina. I cannot find any website selling those tickets from Ciudad del Este to BA. Have any of you guys heard about that?
Thank you in advance.
I am planning a four week trip to Argentina in October/ November and my itinerary is coming together like this:
Fly into BA
Buenos Aires 7 days
Fitz Roy 4 days
El Chalten 8 days
El Cafafate 3 days
Buenos Aires 3 days
Fly out BA
Does anyone have any input on my itinerary? Or can anyone recommend day trips from any of these places (especially Iguazu falls). I am spending a bit of time in each place because 1) I like to travel slow and 2) the weather might be bad.
It looks to me…
I was wondering if I could get an up-to-date explanation of the state of the Argentinian blue market for USD at the moment? I was reading an article in Fortune (http://fortune.com/2015/12/28/argentina-peso-black-market/) that made it sound like the black market for USD --> Pesos was drying up.
As an Australian who is hoping to travel to Argentina, if this is true, I was not sure how much of a good idea it would be to convert AUD to USD at home and then into pesos in Argentina…
We are looking for a Spanish school in Buenos Aires (or a close suburb) for our 9 year-old girl during the week of June 27 and July 4 (total of two weeks). We prefer a Spanish school as opposed to a bilingual school. Are there schools that take in children for a few weeks? Are the schools in session during these two weeks in Argentina?
Thanks in advance.
