coming in nov for 23 days. Buenos Aires, Barriloche ???

Other tremendous site that anyone would recommend, the falls, mendoza or uraquay?? Also recommendations for a comfy stay close to town, bed and breakfast, pension, or mid range hotel with some character. Love to walk and take public transport in cities and want to visit the museums and first timer attractions. Any help would be appreciated. I am researching but it is such a large country with so many options. Thanks

In BA, consider staying in a private apartment. And in Bariloche, consider staying in a private house. Feel free to PM for more information.

Buenas tardes, Santa Cruz!

Number one on your agenda should be Iguasu Falls! There's lots to see, and it is the grandest waterfall in the world. Eleanor Roosevelt once described Niagara Falls as a mere "kitchen faucet" compared to mighty Iguasu.

We liked Bariloche a lot too. It's a highly scenic town, what with the mountains and the lake as a backdrop. The city is far smaller than Mendoza, but the downtown areas of the two are actually comparable in size.

Bariloche had a huge number of hotels, many downtown, but also a great many along Bustillo Avenue, the suburban lakeshore road west of town. If you'd like to stay right on the lake at a moderate price, Bustillo Avenue is where to look.

Around Bariloche you have Lake Nahuel Huapi, with boat tours, the mountains to the south, including the volcano Mount Tronador, and the arid scenery along Route 40 stretching northward.

Happy travels and let me know if I can help further!

Why not do something different and head to the far south after Bariloche?

Spend a few days in Los Glaciares (either El Chalten or El Calafate) for mountains, glaciers and walking. Perito Moreno Glacier is amazing and it is possible to do a walk on the glacier. There are also boat trips to look at the glacier snouts or gentle walks along the walkways for views of the glacier calving. Or take a boat trip to Estancia Cristina....

Then head to the end of the world and spend a few days in Ushuaia....It's really very civilized and has amazing scenery. Do a boat trip on the Beagle Channel (penguins, sea lions and Estancia Haberton). Take El Tren del Fin del Mundo to Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego. Think about a trip to Lago Fagnano. Take the chair lift to the top of Cumbres del Martial and walk...

We didn't have time to visit El Chalten but our pictures of El Calafate are here:
