Thinking of going with three folk (two hotel rooms, or two B&B rooms) to Mendoza arriving June 29, 2011 - July 2, 2011. Specific vineyards in mind.
Previously stayed (2006) in a modest hotel on Parque Independencia, and liked the location but not the room.
a. Suggested hotels and/or B&B's (lean toward hotels).
b) Suggested tour groups or superior drivers.
c) Great in-town restaurants for the evenings, as I seem to recall Mendoza rolling up the streets fairly early.
d) Insights regarding the behavior of Volcan Puyehue? I would hate to book three tickets from BsAs to find them canceled.
