With a visit to Chile, we felt that a visit to the Andes was a must. So we booked a day trip through AndoAndes Chile. For those looking for a more relaxed hike within one day, this was a good option.
It was incredibly busy...More
Took a day tour from Santiago with Viator and visited Embasse el Yejo and Cajon del Maipo. Beautiful places and look great in the pics. Drive there was very long though and on the weekend it was super crowded. A pleasant visit and worth doing...More
Andes are such a spectacular view from any point of observation, being it from the airplane before landing in Santiago or from anywhere in the city. Snowy peaks all year round. If you travel from Santiago to Mendoza you will see a spectacular view as...More

Did this during my Scenic Tour of South America which started in Chile, crossed through Argentina and ended in Brazil. Looking through old photos of the journey inspired me to write a review, the red rock is somewhat reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, its quite...More
Nice bus, left on time, only an hour through Customs & Immigration and arrived an hour early in Mendoza. The actual trip was breathtaking with gorgeous views and 30 curves which were thrilling to say the least. The driver was very good, but the bus...More
From mid-Oct to mid-Nov, we visited Chile. I wanted to be there in the spring time south of the equator. It was chilly except for the last 2 days we were there. We took in several tours: the Cena Dinner and Show, Valpraiso & Vina...More

We bought our tickets at the bus station days before the bus trip over the Andes. We were able to get the exact seats that we wanted. We had come from Santiago to Mendoza on Andesmar, but were not impressed. The attendant was rude and did not seem to like his job at all. The trip was supposed to be 8 hours, but the traffic over the mountains was good and the time at Customs & Immigration was only an hour, so the entire trip was about 7 hours with no stops or chance to get food. The only thing we got was a cookie and coffee/tea about 30 minutes after departure! Take snacks or a sandwich! We are traveling by Cata tomorrow to Santiago from Mendoza, so hope they will be better. And we are bringing food!

My wife and I will have 3 1/2 days in Mendoza. We would love to see as many wineries as possible and wanted to know where best top stay, Maipu, Agrelo/Luján de Cuyo y Valle de Uco?? Any help or suggestions appreciated. Also is it possible to hike in the Andes Mountains without it taking an entire day? Thanks!

We stayed at Lares de Chacras in January and loved it. We rode bikes to different vineyards. We did one full day tour with a driver also. In December, we will be staying at Finca Adalgisa. We are looking forward to this property. We just worked with them to plot visiting different vineyards.

Trip report- Argentina (20 Replies)
Sunday 9/20 We arrived at 9ish am on Sunday 9/20 and met our taxi to our Hotel in San Telmo. After checking in and getting settled we walk around the block to the street fair in San Telmo with lots of music and crafts available for sale. Our solution to an early Dinner was a late lunch (seated at 3pm) at a Parrilla 1880, where we had huge steaks. John had the equivalent of a rib eye and I had the nearest thing to filet mignon that they have. We shared and they were both very good. For...More

Oh CRZN, thank you for this witty, wonderfully descriptive trip report. Not really a trip report - more of an adventure report ! I really enjoyed your narratives on the wild life and scenery and glaciers and well, all of it. Excellent ! Many thanks for bringing back great memories of some areas and notes for future trips to others. Best to you, ~Marnie

Most of these except for the last one will be on a tour bus and you will be shooting photos through the windows. Have you considered hiring a taxi at the port for the day to take you to Tierra del Fuego National park so that you can shoot some photos at your own pace. Also, the taxi driver can drop you off afterwards at the lift for the Martial Glacier where you can shoot some outstanding photos of the entire Beagle Channel area. Also, have a look at www.cruisecritic.com and read previous...More
