I'm traveling solo to AR in March/April 2010.
As of now, I've got 3 nights in BA, 6 nights in the Lake District, 2 back in BA (to change bags), 2 in Iguazu, 2 more back in BA and then home. I like the way its mixed, so I can get to a full moon falls walk, and still get to El Bolson for the feria.
My question is whether I'm leaving enough time for the Lake District. As of now, here's my plan:
Day 1- arrive noon and drive to the Rio Hermoso Hotel just south of San Martin de los Andes.
Day 2 - Lagos Lazar and Traful and then back to the Rio Hermoso.
Day 3 - drive through the lakes, down through Bariloche to the Llao Llao.
Day 4 - drive to El Bolson for the day and return. Lunch at Jauja.
Day 5 - take a boat to Isla Victoria and the Bosque Arrayanes.
Day 6 - drive south again and go to both the Ventisquero Negro (Pampa Linda lunch) and the Cascada de los Cesares. PM in Bariloche.
Day 7 - fly back to BA.
Am I spending too much time north of Bariloche? Should I trade some of that time for, say, taking a night at the Correntso and biking to the Bosque instead? Will I end up regretting not spending more time in El Bolson? And it seems a waste to spend 4 nights at the Llao Llao and not really spend any time on the premises.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
