After a lot of indecision re destination my husband and I have decided to do our first trip to South America in Oct / Nov this year - Chile, Brazil and Argentina. Only a month, so just a taster of an enormous and diverse continent. Mostly the usual attractions - they're attractions for a reason.
My husband is mad for Latin jazz and very keen to go to Brazil. We're interested in cultural heritage, and would love to see great scenery. Coming from Australia, we're also keen to sample some other "new world" wines.
But back to the point of this post, going to BA has always been an ambition for me but there's such a variety of possible regions in Argentina to vist.
We are looking at going from BA to Bariloche and then doing the lake crossing into Chile and flying to Santiago from there. We have travelled a lot in Europe and Asia and "touristy" doesn't appeal, but the landscape sounds breathtaking and well worth it.
I also thought about going west to Mendoza from BA and then crossing back into Chile from there.
For the overall trip plan we're currently thinking
- Chile: Santiago and environs, Atacama
- Brazil: RJ; Pantanal; Paraty; Ig/Falls
- Agentina: BA and ...
Any advice appreciated by this novice. Thanks.
