I'm going to Argentina in January and am thinking of going to San Ignacio--however as I understand it some parts of Misiones province require anti-malarials? I am also going to Iguazu Falls, but the CDC says no anti-malarials are needed there. I'd like to see San Ignacio, but at the same time don't really feel like doing the full anti-malarial regime for one night in my trip.
Trying to travel between El Calafate and Bariloche in mid-December. There are busses traveling but those look to take around 30 hours. Is there a quicker way to travel between the two other than flying? Is there an express bus or a way to rent a car to pick up in one location and drop in the other? Any help appreicated. Thanks
Hi, I hope to visit Parque National Monte Leon in January 2014 as part of a long trip. If anyone has been there recently, where did you stay? I'd prefer to be close by and have contacted by email both Hosteria Monte Leon (close to the park) and Kawo Apart Hotel (in Puerto Santa Cruz) but have had no response.
Many thanks ... Jo
Would you have good ranch to recommand for horseriding rides from 1 to 3 days max, in Patagonia : Ushuaia, El Calafate/El Chalten, Torres del Paine (Chili) and even in Bariloche. What i find on the web is way too overpriced.
For fishing, i don't seem to find any daytrip, with just a guide and a boat, it all seems to be minimum 3 days trips at prices completely out of what i can afford, even if i have a "not bad" budget. Or do you know any lakes/rivers easy to fish without a guide or a boat.
Thanks for you help !

18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25/01 : El Calafate, Perito Moreno, El Chalten, Fitz Roy
Flight during the night of 25/01 to 26/01 : El Calafate-BA-Neuquen, then bus Neuquen-Chos Malal on 26/01

I'm planning to do the Sierra Valdivieso circuit in December/January but would like to extend it to include Lago Alto at the western end of Valle Carabajal, then circling round south/anti-clockwise back towards Laguna del Caminate and Paso de Oveja (similar to the trek described here ).
Has anyone done this route? I imagine it will be very difficult and looks like a crossing of the Rio Olivia is needed in the Valle Carabajal: this is my main concern, as I don't want to wander miles upstream to find it impassable. The Valdivieso circuit crosses the river much further downstream, so I'm wondering if this is the only reasonable place to cross.
Any information you can share would be appreciated.
title says it all...is there black-blue market money exchange in Iguazu?
Hello, I was looking for an internship in Argentina. I am a student in college in the USA. I was looking at road2argentina.com . Does anyone have experience with this organization? Also, are there any internship opportunities that you know about that you may could tell me about? Anything is helpful!
I really don't mean this to be a trite question, but can someone point me to any web links that explain why such a high proportion of portenos see a psychologist or psychoanalyst compared to those in big cities elsewhere in the world?
I understand that the proportion is much greater in Buenos Aires than in other cities, even compared to places like LA or New York which one would otherwise assume be the "world leaders"
Many thanks in advance for your help
I need your advice: I've got the whole of December in the Lakes District and Patagonia.
- flying into Bariloche
- over to Chile, including Isla Chiloe
- somehow down to the south
- El Chalten / El Calafate / Perito Moreno / Torres del Paine
- flying out of Punta Arenas
I'm trying to find out how to get to the south.
- either flying from Puerto Montt to Punta Arenas, travelling north and then back down again.
- or somehow down the Ruta 40. How far down can I get by public transport? Or would I need to book a tour? If so, which ones do you recommend and from where? Or is ist possible to get down the chilenan side?
Any ideas are most welcome! Thanks in advance!
Hi, has anyone had the same experience? I paid $75 for one-time entry fee for canadians online on Saturday. It appeared confirmed and i can see the barcode generated (somehow i cannot print the page directly). but i never received an email...
Now i cannot print the receipt of my payment. I am leaving for argentina in 3 days - i am gettting very nervous.

Hi Everyone- Let me thank you in advance for your help!
My girlfriend and I are renting a car for 2 weeks out of Bariloche to be returned in Bariloche (December 7th-21st). We have no real plan. All we want to do is see some beautiful scenery, do some hiking, meeting some cool people, eat some good food, and maybe go fly fishing a time or 2. I'd really love you advice on where to go and what to do. I love driving so I don't mind long days in the car. I'd originally thought about trying to get down to El Calafate, but I'm open to your suggestions.
A few facts:
- We'll have a small rental car, but am not afraid to take it slow on bad roads.
- We'd like to mix our accommodations between camping, coach surfing, farm stays, and a few cool/interesting hotels.
- We're 25/30 years old and traveling on a low/moderate budget, but willing to splurge for something cool.
Some friends and I are going to Patagonia in late December '13 and are complimenting a 4-day trek in the Parque Nacional de Glaciares outside El Chalten.
Some questions - do we have to bring all our own food with us or can we buy at the camp grounds - specifically at Campamentos De Agostini & De Poincenot as well as Refugio Los Troncos?
And how easy is it to rent good sleeping bags, tents and - assuming we do have to bring our own food - stoves?
I am planning a trip to Argentina with my husband for november 2014. I know it is far in time, but the pleasure to travel for us is to dream about it the whole year, it makes the trip feel longer. We are mid fifties, so we like to spend enough days at each place, not rush crazy.
We had visited Bolivia last year, for this trip we want to maximise our time in Patagonia. I am thorn to include Ushuiai, since some of the post i read say it might not be worthed ??
This is my first draft. I know there is lots of planes, i might change few of them with bus transportation, please let me know which one could be easier then other.
Day 1 and 2 Buenos Aires
Day 3 to 5 Puerto Madryn (by flight)
Day 6- to 9 Ushuaia (by flight)
Day 10 to 15 (6 days) El Calafate and El Chalten (by flight)
Day 16 to 19 Bariloche (mostly for fishing, but without a guide unless we find one af... more »
