Thank you for entering to the topic. I am planning my next trip through South America by the backpacker style that will last 6-7 months (July - December). I am peruavian so it'll begin in Peru. Travel to the South: Bolivia, Chile, Argentina. Then to the North: Ecuador Colombia. I will also visit Brazil but I still do not know if I will enter through the southern part (Uruguay) or North (Amazonas - Peru).** The problem:**
I wanted to start the trip in the South but I…
Hi! I'm planning a trip to Argentina, and I'd do a detour to the North-West part mainly for llamas. I've read that you can spot them in Salta province, but I haven't find any detailed info. Is this encounter guaranteed? Where exactly?
I've also found out that there are guanuacos in Ushuaia area. Do you know exactly where?
Thank you indeed :)
I'm going to be in Buenos Aires over Christmas with a friend., we'll be 4 week into our trip around a few countries in South America. I understand that Argentinians celebrate Christmas on the 24th with the 25th more of a rest day to nurse the hangovers...!
I'm just asking if anyone has previously spent Christmas in BA and where is best to celebrate? I imagine a lot of restaurants will be closed and so on. Therefore any tips would be appreciated i.e choice of hostel/hotel, restaurant…
Just looking into a little holiday over the festive period at the end of the year,and the wife and I are pretty keen on the Idea of driving form Salta to Ushuaia. Not sure if you can rent a car from one place and drop it off in another,thinking it would take around 16 days with some stops in Mendoza/Bariloche/El Calafate at a B and B or small hotel and camp along the rest of the way. I drove around northern Argentina 14 years ago or so and remember the distances took longer than expected,mainly…
- I have read numerous articles and blogs from a few years ago explaining how much better the Unofficial Rate (or Blue Rate) is compared to the Official bank rate. But I also have read newer articles that this is no longer true. Ever since the new Argentine president, the Unofficial Blue rate is no longer better than the Official rate. Can anyone confirm this is true? Does that mean if I use an ATM bank card (that reimburses my ATM fees), that the exchange rate will be just the same as the Blue…
Although not as rough as the Australian ride on the Canning Stock Route, fasten your seatbelts one more time, chuck a coldie and pop-corn and hop on a smaller Toyota for a 5,003 Km ride through the relentless winds of la pampa and Tierra del Fuego, from Buenos Aires to Torres del Paine, Punta Arenas and Ushuaia…

I'm trying to find details on a bus from Puerto iguazu to foz de iguazu, or straight to foz de iguazu Airport on 18th or 19th June 2018.
I'm not having any luck finding an answer, so if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
My wife is being sent to Buenos Aires on Business for 3 days in May (from USA). We are going down a few days early to be tourists. We get in early Thursday morning, and she doesn't have to work until Mon-Wed. We are staying in San Isidro.
So, I have some questions:
-What are some "MUST SEE" things around San Isidro that we should do together Thur-Sun?
-Recommendations for me to check out by myself the 3 days she's in the office?
-A friend told me that when he was there years ago, there…
My girlfriend and I are travelling to Argentina for 17 days at the end of October this year (flying in and out of BA).
I definitely want to go to Patagonia but I'm struggling to grasp what the essentials are and what is doable in my timeframe. I'm up for some trekking and prepared for reasonably challenging ones but without being ultra serious.
I don't mind travelling to the Chilean side of Patagonia for Torres del Paine if it's recommended. I have looked into the W Trek there and would like…
