Mendoza Wine Tasting

in Trip Planning, Wine Tours

Argentina is famous for its meat, wine, tango, sports, and of course, their beautiful women. For any one of these reasons, coupled with the country’s gorgeous scenery, vacationers will find a wealth of travel opportunities in Argentina’s South American backyard.

City lovers find they can spend months in Buenos Aires and still not see it all. Others travel to the north and see the gorgeous Iguazu waterfalls or venture south and enjoy the glaciers of Patagonia and hiking near Torres del Paine. Any of these Argentine vacations is worth the ten or so hours you spend on a plane getting there, and with the favorable exchange rate (nearly four to one) budget travelers can enjoy doing as much as they like, but end up spending very little. If you have the opportunity to visit Argentina, each of these vacations is well worth the trip and, if you can somehow fit each of them in, all the better.
