Must Do's in Argentina

Hi there,

My wife and I are planning to do a trip to South America next year and one of the countries we'd like to visit is Argentina. For our entire trip we have limited time (only 3 or so weeks). We also have limited budget so don't mind to stay in basic accommodation.

I would like to know in general the following:

- What are the must see attractions (we were thinking of Buenos Aires and perhaps Perito Moreno Glacier, Bariloche also looks great but not sure if we can fit it in), for how many days at a place?

- What accommodation options are there - best value for money?

- What is the best way to get around? Heard flying is quick but expensive and buses are also very good but takes long.

- What is best time of the year to visit? (we were thinking of Aug-Sep 2014)

- Any other valuable tips?

Just for your information as well - as mentioned we'd like to visit couple of countries - on our list is Brazil, Chile and Peru (Macchu Picchu) as well.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

August to September is still Winter like weather in the Southern Hemisphere so if you don't mind cooler weather when you are traveling. The Patagonia areas will still be quite cold. Have a look at www.interpatagonia.com

The Northern areas of Argentina will be warmer. Have a look at www.welcomeargentina.com.

Highlights of the country are Buenos Aires,Iguazu Falls, Salta, Mendoza, Puerto Madryn, Bariloche,

El Calafate, Ushuaia.

Have a look at www.expedia.com for hotel accommodation pricing.

Have a look at www.plataforma10.com for bus pricing.

Have fun with your holiday planning.
