If you enjoy hiking, but you are not an expert this post will be for sure something you need to read if in Mendoza, Argentina (and probably also in Santiago de Chile) and you want to hike (a bit of) Aconcagua. I'll share the trip and all relevant details based on my experience on the trail.
As we were in Mendoza with @vino_mar we left it all in her expert hands. This post will give an overview of the wineries we have visited together but I will also share a few words about what she saw separately.
If you like hot springs, SPAs and massages, this might be a relaxing place for you. My recommendation is to go in the first part of the day if you want half day as the massages get booked out.
We spent almost 4 days in Mendoza and there were still so many things to do. You can use the city as a home base to go around to different locations.
After the trip in the over touristy Iguazu (still highlighting again, it is impressive!) we headed to a far less traveled area of Argentina: The North.
I went a few years back to Iceland the land of waterfalls and so I had to ask the question:, is it worth it to go all the way to Iguazu for a waterfall after seeing some many. I got the same clear answer from everyone: YES!!!
Now post trip, if you have the same question, stop questioning JUST GO.
If you are not into cemeteries, you can still visit Recoleta and enjoy some of it's other interesting things to visit. Here what I checked out:
Prepare for color, football and quite some crowds. La Boca has a special vibe so take the time to walk around.
You notice that you are in the city center especially when coming from a smaller neighborhood, as everything seems bigger somehow. Make sure you cross the Avenida 9 de Julio, widest in the world to see if you can make it within a stoplight ;)
Probably one of the most alive neighborhoods, San Telmo is the perfect place to stay while in BA.
