Hi, My friend Sue and I are staying in Recoleta and want to take some Spanish immersion classes. A friend from Uruguay has recommended Ibero Spanish School www.iberospanish.com in Recoleta or barria Norte. Does anyone know of a private tutor as well in the area? My idea is to take group classes here and some private lessons with a private tutor. Any suggestions are highly appreciated.
I'm in buenos Aires for a week and wanted to know where the best bars and clubs are. I'm staying near Palermo. If anyone knows somewhere that's good at the weekend let me know. Thanks!
I am Jay, a male in my 30s from London and a British passport holder. I will be travelling around Argentina (Iguazu falls both sides, Buenos Aires and Patagonia) from 28th Nov 2016 then going to see the Salt flats (Salar de Uyuni) in Bolivia.
I wanted to seek your advice whether it is recommended I book tours in advance online or is it possible to just arrive at each location then negotiate with the local for cheaper deals?
I have a very tight schedule to cover a lot of places.
I plan to do a road trip via route 40(in argentina) and carretera austral. My plan is to rent a car in Bariloche and go south to Esquel. Then cross the border to Futaleufu(chile) and do the carretera austral(CA).After the road trip of middle part of CA, I wanna go out from Chile Chico- Los Antiguos and then head down to El Calafate. At the last step, return this car in El Calafate. My question is that the rental shop and Chile-Argentina border allow crossing the border?
just wondering if anyone can help me. I have a situation where i am an Australian Passport holder and i am getting a U.S work VISA done in Buenos Aires and they will have my passport for a week or so. I have some domestic flights booked in between that and i am returning to Buenos Aires after. Been a foreign citizen will simply proof of ID not my actual passport be satisfactory since i am not leaving the country or is that a no go?
Any information on this would be great. Fairly…
My name is Avery and I am interested in traveling in South America this summer before starting a 9 to 5 job in the fall. I am 22 and a little dubious about traveling alone. I am interested in being in Argentina and taking trips throughout the country as well as to neighboring countries. Does anyone have input about whether or not traveling alone is doable? Or is anyone planning a similar trip?
Let me know!!
I am planning to start my South America trip in Mendoza, Argentina, because I love red wine and mountains. I am considering spending a few weeks taking a Spanish Language course, classes either at a school or private teacher. I am seriously interested in working on my previous basic studies. Having learned French in France, I am wary of going to a large school full of students who are only interested in meeting with other foreigners and not learning. Any suggestions or experiences you can share?…
Hi there! I´m planing a trip to Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego - Argentina) this year and my first goal is to see snowfalls. Coming from a tropical country, snow maybe a remarkable experience to me. So, which would be the best month to pick? I really don´t mind the short days during winter or the cold (I´ve already been there in summer time it´s chilly!!), but I want to see a lot of snow and snowfalls (a lot!!) I´ve got only 7 days to spend there and I was wandering which month would be the best…
I'm planning on volunteering in Buenos Aires this summer through a program called LIFE Argentina (http://www.lifeargentina.org/), and from some preliminary research it seems to be legitimate, actually impactful, and has low volunteer fees. From what I've been reading, it seems that the bulk of the volunteer duties will take place in the afternoon, leaving my mornings and evenings free for ~2 months.
What kinds of things could I do, with regards to being productive and staying in compliance with…
I plan on travelling throughout the northern and western parts of Argentina. I just wanted to get a general idea of the different transport options. Is train a suitable option for travelling between provinces and if so, is it better to book tickets in advance to get them cheap and if so, from where can I buy train tickets in advance. I assume bus tickets do not vary markedly and there is no real need to get them in advance.
