One day excursion from cruise

Hi everyone,

We will be on the Golden Princess Doing Santiago to Rio beginning Dec 21, 2013. The cruise stops in Valpariso (Chile), Punta Areanas (Chile), Ushuaia (Argentina), Falkland Islands (Stanley), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Montevideo (Uruguay), and Rio De Janeiro (Brazil). We are a couple in our mid 20's and are pretty adventurous. We would much rather do excursions on our own than go with ones Princess provides.

Any suggestions on what we should do when we visit for the day? Please let me know if you have any insight you can provide. We are there from 12PM to 8PM on 12/26/13.

Thanks!

HOla Twed!

For Buenos Aires I would suggest:

- First of all avoid taxis at the cruise terminal. They overprice in a horrible way.

- Then head to Plaza de Mayo and walk on Avenida de Mayo. Go inside Cafe Tortoni to give a look. Walk all the way to the Congress (about 12 blocks).

- Take a taxi and go to La Boca. Walk around take many pictures. Go into the Museo de Bellas Artes, Benito Quinquela Martin, visit the top floor. Have lunch at the art Gallery "Proa" (you don't need to pay the ticket to get into the museum).

- Take bus 29 from Caminito and get off at Callao and Cordoba. Walk four blocks to the bookshop "El Ateneo".

- Walk from here to Recoleta. Have late lunch at "El Sanjuanino" in Posadas 1515- best empanadas in town.

- After lunch (and before 530!) walk into the cementry. Have a walk inside, let yourself impress with the architecture.

- Before heading back to the Cruise, stop for an ice cream at Volta- you won't regreat!

Have fun and enjoy very much!
