Hi everyone,

Next year my wife and I are taking a year out to travel. In October and November 2017, we have a 25-day stretch in Patagonia, starting in Ushuaia and ending back in Buenos Aires. I have been trying to plan our itinerary, and am having problems finding up-to-date information on how to get around.

What we have planned so far leaves us with a five day gap between leaving El Calafate and arriving in Puerto Madryn. We are quite unsure what to do with these days, and how best to travel…

Hi all I'm hoping for some help on my itinerary for my trip to Argentina in November.
I'm a female travelling solo & have flights booked from 14/11 - 1/12 to Buenos Aires.
My preferred places to visit are Mendoza, Bariloche & Colonia in Uruguay.
I like hiking (not too strenuous) biking, wine & food so far my research shows these spots offer all.
Perhaps you can advise on whether this is all feasible within 17 days & if driving from BA to Mendoza is safe alone?
Also any tips on a nice working ranch…

A hopefully quick question: I would like to confirm what I read recently that USA passport holders do not need a tourist visa to visit Argentina -- and the "reciprocity fee" of $160 has been waived (meaning free entry for American tourists). Is this correct?

Igauzu Falls

We have been given conflicting advise regarding malaria tablets for visiting the Igauzu Falls (from both sides). We have used the Fit for Travel website which suggests there is low risk but we have also been told verbally by a travel nurse that they are necessary. To be on the safe side, this evening we went to a pharmacy to get our prescription but there system suggested we didn't need them.

So for those who have been, have you taken them? We will only be visiting the tourist areas and do not…

Hello! me my brother and a friend are taking a graduation trip to Argentina (from Italy ndr).

We are going to land in Buenos Aires on october the 5th (early in the morning) and we will be leaving on october the 27th (late at night). We are very determined on seeing as much as we can so we planned a pretty extensive tour that will require quite the hours spent on bus rides and (hopefully not many) flights.

PArt 1-
Our plan is to stay 3 day in Buenos Aires, and leave on the 7th at night time to…

Hi all,

My wife and I are planning a trip to Argentina this October. We like our hiking (not Everest!), history, and just seeing different parts of the country. If you had a month to spend in Argentina, what route would you take?

This trip has come up at short notice, so my research is limited. As of now, my thoughts are to do a circular route, like as follows:

BA-Rosario-Cordoba-La Rioja-Cafayette-Salta-Iguazu-BA.

Has anyone any thoughts on this? Is there anything on this path you would…

Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice on our Patagonia trip next year - my main concerns are transport availability in late March/early April and whether we have enough time/money for what we'd like to do.

We're flying from BA into El Calafate on 27th March, traveling overland to Santiago, where we fly out from on 16th April.

After seeing the glacier we'd like to head up to Bariloche via El Chalten. I'm wondering where people would advise us to cross over into Chile to get up to Santiago, and…
