Argentina / Uruguay in February

Hello - I am planning a trip for 2 weeks in February to Argentina & Uruguay for my first time. I would love to see the below places. Is this too aggressive? How many days would you suggest in each destination? Is it worth it to skip Uruguay and see Patagonia? Thanks in advance for your help!


- Buenos Aires

- Iguazu Falls

- Mendoza Wine Country


- Punta del Este

- Colonia

You could probably do Colonia as a day trip from BsAs in which case I would schedule 4- 5 days in Buenos Aires. I would do at least 2 days in Mendoza and 1-2 in Iguazu. All this excluding traveling time. Patagonia is amazing. If you just do the Argentinian side I would suggest at least 4 days there to spend time in El Chalten and El Calafate, excluding the days flying/ bussing around. If you also want to see Bariloche, Ushuaia or the Chilen side you need at least a week for just Patagonia IMHO. How many days in total were you planning your trip for?

With just 14 days then I would try to limit the destinations to no more than 3 stops. I would eliminate Uruguay since you have nicer beaches in California.

Air travel in Argentina is expensive and flights are limited. February is a big travel month for Argentines and foreign visitors so flights can book quickly.

Buenos Aires 4 days

Iguazu 1-2 days

Mendoza 3-4 days

Bariloche 4 days

El Calafate/Perito Moreno glacier 2 days

Clearly you can extend your visting time in places like Mendoza,Bariloche,El Calafate since there are many places in the area to experience.

Have fun with your holiday planning.
