  • Drink wine in Mendoza's Bodegas.
  • Horse Ride in Salta up in the north west.
  • From Ushuaia the end of the earth..go ski in Bariloche - (May to September)
  • white water rafting
  • See if there is any cowboy or cowgirl in you in a estancia a typical argentine farm.
  • Mount Fitzroy in Los Glaciares National Park , ice climbing toughness.
  • Mar Del Plata is a spot for getting some sun on the beach if its summer- you can surf around here too.
  • Iguazu Falls bigger and wider than Niagra Falls this is a great spot to stay and break up the long bus trips. Its an expanse of wonder all that water falling down, how the hell was this formed ?

Tips

Buenos Aires is a popular spot to go clubbing, so popular some hostels have integrated clubs and bars. Or have a tango class so that you can remember that you are not in Europe! I'm not sure I will ever forget getting spat on by the visitng fans at a Bocca Juniors game in La Bocca, I think it might finally be out of my hair now :)

Buenos Aires City Guide

 

ushaia argentina

Ushuaia is the only spot to leave for your Antartic tour. It is the southernmost city in the world and is located in Argentina. It is often called "the end of the world".

You can get dinner and the most sensual story, yes it's TANGO!

mate

Editors note you should first add cold water and leave it 2-3mins to swell the mate. This prevents the pipe getting blocked and also stops you getting boiling tea burns! You add boiling water after that and leave again 2-3 mins.

La Bocca Shop

It has been a tough morning ! But only because the metro doesnt go close by Recoletta. I'm having lunch while typing at la poesia on Chile in Buenos Aires.

Torres Del Paine

Had a slight delay at Heathrow, which meant I missed my connecting flight to Buenos Aires (BA) and so was stuck in Sao Paulo for 5 hours.. not to much of a problem as I sat in the Business lounge.. who said this backpacking stuff was supposed to be bad?
