Last Minute Antarctica Deal

Hi,

I am very keen on one of the Antarctica deals but obviously cannot afford it. I plan to go to Ushuaia first week of Jan 2015, 6th Jan to be exact and stroll around to find a last minute deal that is probably cheaper than the original price.

Is this a good idea? Any input would be appreciated. Thank you

18 hour layover in Buenos Aires or Lima?

I can book my return flight home from Ushuaia so that I have an 18 hour layover in either Lima or Buenos Aires. Can anyone suggest which would be more interesting, and what to do there in those 18 hours. I've never been to either, and don't know how far the airport is from the sights. Thanks!

Using travel agent in BA from the UK

Has anyone used Maigon Travel who operate Patagonia Escapes? They are travel agents based in Buenas Aires and they have what looks like a very attractively priced tour of Patagonia. I would like to know if anyone has used them or had any dealings with them before we go ahead.

define 'cheap' for accomodation

we have the 2012 LP argentina. in purmamarca, we found places listed at 140 pesos going for over 300.
we're now in salta, nice-ish place with private bath for 300/night.

money is a headache--we've used pounds to buy dollars and are now converting those slowly to pesos, so it's hard to keep track of what things cost, and we just left bolivia, so can't really compare the two sets of prices. places on booking.com are generally more expensive than those who don't list online.

what does a cheapish…

Bus travel, Mendoza to Salta

We are visiting Northern Argentina - February 2015. We are considering travelling by the overnight bus from Mendoza to Salta, as opposed to flying. Having travelled in Mexico on their buses - could any TT readers give us an insight as to what we can expect - we would wish to travel on the best service available.

Thanks in anticipation

affordable horseback rides in Patagonia

Hi,
Does anyone know affordable agencies that can arrange multiday horseback rides in Patagonia? We're looking for destinations South of Bariloche, probably February.

It seems that when you contact an agency through the internet, prices are way inflated. So any quotes that will help us negotiate would be great.

We're four people, so we could form a group by ourselves.

Two week itinerary in Argentina

My wife and I will be travelling to Argentina in December 2014.

We'll have two weeks there and we're thinking Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Perito Moreno Glacier (Patagonia) and Mendoza.

Being such a big country, we're not sure if we'll have enough time to see all these places and not feel rushed.

Air travel is quicker but more expensive than buses, and the airfares will be more expensive for foreigners. Time is of the essence, so would we be able to see all these places in two weeks?

Patagonia + Tierra de Fuego car rental

hi everyone,
I'm planning a trip to th South of Argentina in mid-December (I think) and I'm thinking about renting a car (for one more days in different areas). I won't be able to plan anything in advance and I'll try to get a car in the last minute.

do you have recommendations for places where renting a car would be a good idea considering that when I'm in a place I really like, I'd like to cruise around, see small villages, lonely roads and try to see some major attractions outside peak hours…
