I'm looking to do the above next year and wanted to know your experience has less experienced hiker? The plan is to be there for 5 days, do yo take all your stuff or only what you need for the 5 days? Any feedback about this would be helpful.
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…
Hola hola !!
I am currently travelling around south America although stopping in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the next 6 months. I want to get a deva cut or go to a salon that specialises in cutting curly hair as my hair is type 3c curls. I usually get my hair cut every 6 weeks and I don't want that to change whilst travelling !! Can anyone put me in contact with any local hairdressers in Buenos Aires who may be able to help?
Hey fellow travelers,
I am planning a solo trip to Argentina next year, the dates are not set yet as I'm waiting for work to approve but it would be towards end of January/February and for approximately 3 weeks.
I would like to see as much as possible but still enjoy a few days in every places to do excursions, go hiking, maybe do some kayak or rafting and would appreciate any feedback if you have done a similar trip.
At the moment I was looking at the below itinerary:
- 2 days in Buenos Aires
Hello all :-),
In January I am travelling down south to go on a cruise. Have the option of going to Punta Arenas first for a couple of days and limit my time in Ushuaia to little more than a day (arrive day before cruise, fly out day of return to go back to Punta Arenas), or just do Ushuaia.
Will be travelling alone (male, 36) by plane.
Is it worth visiting PA? Is there enough to do in either of the places? Not the type to be wanting to really go on excursions, just like visiting the towns and…

with a few other friends, we am planning to travel to Argentina, in 18 Sep till 07 Oct.
firstly fly to Ushuaia, then to El Calafate; then Bariloche then Iguazu
We count on all these in about 12 days time.
How would be the weather like during that period?
Is Bariloche very different than El Calafate ? which one is more worth to visit?
It would be good if anyone could provide us any further good tips.
Is ATMs everywhere in B.A. ?
Any suggestion for internet/wifi?
Apologies for the lengthy post but my question is rather vague yet specific at the same time :-)
We are in the fortunate position of being able to take three months off Oct - Dec this year and are looking at renting an apartment somewhere at that time, and taking our 2 and 4 yo children with us. Somewhere we can just be, chill out, see some sites, spend time together, relax, etc, with a few main considerations:
Beach or mountains/nature
Decent internet as I will still be…
We will be in Ushuaia in Dec 2016 via cruise ship and would like a day trip to Lago Fagnano and Garibaldi Pass including some hiking and a 4x4. Does anyone know of a tour company that does this?
Hi all fellow travellers!
After spending some days in San Pedro de Atacama, and before going to Tupiza in Bolivia (to start an Uyuni tour), I was thinking to stop briefly in north Argentina to visit a couple of towns.
The idea is:
Day 1-San Pedro> Purmamarca (about 5h distance)
Stay in Purmamarca and do some trekks (walk on the cedro de los 7 colores and circular trek around paseo de los cerros colorados -I believe it´s not the same, ha!). Day there and spend the night.
Day 2-Purmamarca> Tilcara…
