I am in the VERY early stages of planning a vacation to Argentina. I'm more or less looking at flying from NYC on a Friday and then staying the whole following week and returning the following Sunday, to best manage taking off from work and having the two weekends as part of the trip, although if I have to add a day at the beginning or end of the trip that is fine too.
I'm looking to fly in and out of Buenos Aires and spend a few days there, but aside from that I am just not sure where to go with planning. I understand Argentina is quite large and there is a lot to see, as well as in neighboring areas. Some thoughts I had are: exploring Mendoza or Patagonia, going to Uruguay by ferry for a few days, going up to Iguazu, or some combination of all of those.
I will likely travel on my own and have done a lot of traveling solo, so I am confident in my ability to see a lot while still making the most of my trip, but I would love any suggestions into how to manage a 9-12 day trip.
Thanks in advance!
