Bariloche: Blue dollar or blue euro

Hi,

I'll be arriving in bariloche from chile in a few weeks time. Since I am from a country that uses the euro I would prefer to access the 'blue' market using the euro, but the question is, do I get a good rate for euro cash in bariloche? Or do I really have to carry USD? Chilean pesos would also be an option for me, I could just get them from the ATM before I cross the border.

Thanks, Edwin

Bariloche to Puerto Varas in Chile

I am planning to travel from Bariloche, Argentina to Puerto Varas in Chile. I can see from google earth that there is a mountain road from Lago Espejo (near the camping area) through the Paso Cardenal Antonio Samore and on to the Roadway 215 on the Chile side. Has anyone traveled this route and is it permitted to cross this way? From the satellite images there appear to be some buses on the road and also there seems to be a frontier station a few km from the border on the Chile side.

Any help…

Any guides/agencies for Aconcagua in Mendoza that you can recommend?

As in the topic: I need a competent no-frills guide. Joining a group or going solo+guide, I don't care. I will carry all of my own stuff and I don't need to be spoonfed. If anyone know anything, especially knowledgeable guides offering excellent value for money, please let me know. I would appreciate it if you could draw from your own experience. Thank you!

Bus Salta to Purmamarca

Is there a direct bus that goes from Salta to Purmamarca?
I looked up Plataforma 10, there is a Balut that goes to Cruce Purmamarca, but I don't know how close is Cruce Purmamarca to the centre. In any case this service is not frequent.
I don't mind changing at Jujuy if necessary, but I can't find the names of bus companies that go from Jujuy to Purmamarca. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Torres del Paine Camping and Refugio Options

We (2 people) are looking to trek the W from west to east in December. We realize it will be very busy and have yet to book spots at the refugios or campsites. Some basic questions for those that have done it:

Recommended spots for each night?

I know refugios themselves fill up fast, do the camping options at the refugios (I understand some have camping onsite) fill up / need to be booked ahead of time

Do the free camping options need to be booked in advance

Any thoughts you have would be…
