Gualeguaychú-Carnival

by hellojnewman

Am finally taking my trip to Argentina in the beginning of March. In early planning stage but would like to go to Carnival in Gualeguaychu. I am travelling alone. Plan on taking bus from BA to Gualeguaychu. I believe it is about 3 hours. What I would like to know is if anyone could recommend any accomodations(budget/economy/hostel)in the area and a website if at all possible. I'm sure it would be wise to book in advance. Also planning on going to Iguazu Falls after Carnival. Does any know how long via bus it would be from Gualeguaychu to Iguazu Falls?? Plan on flying back to Buenos Aires and spending 5 days there. Any other advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Jim

Sorry but maybe you should check the dates for Carnival 2009. It will be over in February. The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is the traditional last day for Carnivals world wide. Here is a link describing the carnival in Gualeguaychu http://www.welcomeargentina.com/carnavales/datos_i.html also provides information on where to stay etc.

But again if you want to enjoy carnival arrive in February.

SAM,
thank you. I had checked just last week and the last day was listed as March 7th. I must have been looking at an outdated sight. Thanks for the info. I have already booked my flight so I guess I will just have to find some other place or thing to do while visiting your country. Any suggestions would always be appreciated. Open to just about anything:culture, history, nature,entertainment.
Thanks Again,
Jim

You might check the area around Salta in the far northwest part of the country, historical, great national parks, and wine region as well. Down south in the lakes district is Bariloche, some fantastic areas around there to visit, even take a boat crossing into Chile. Further south is Calafate and the Glacier National Park that would well be worth your consideration. Since you already plan on visiting Iguazu the easiest plan might be there first and then you can take the bus across to Salta, then down to Mendoza then return to Buenos Aires. This would be a nice 10 to 14 day trip, if you have more time allocated then head on south into Patagonia from Mendoza. I find the website www.welcomeargentina.com to be a good place to begin exploring the various regions and locating lodging and activities in your price range.

Enjoy your trip

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires Tip

by kunchik

Dulce de Leche...caramel.
This is in every desert, ice cream (Freddo's), cookies (Havannas are excellent), cakes.
I even got a dulce de leche liquor. I haven't tried it yet, once I open the bottle I'll tell you how good it is!

The ice cream (helado) is like Italian gelato. My favorite flavor at Freddo's is coco con dulce de leche (Coconut with dulce de leche).

Just a'walkin' the dog

by TheWanderingCamel

Bozo's daily walkies is a whole different ball game in Buenos Aires. Professional dog walkers - paseaperros - will take care not only of your pooch's daily exercise and socialising here, as well as walking him twice a day, they'll groom him , see to his health checks and generally take care of his daily needs. Your dog and several others that is - it's nothing to see eight or ten dogs (the days of 20 or more under one walker's care are over) on their leads out for a walk on their way to the railed-off areas in the local parks that are set aside for the city's mutts. It's a bit like the way nannies gather together in London's parks to see the minders gathered together gossiping in one corner in the enclosures whilst their charges play - or ignore each other.

The dogs all seem remarkably sanguine about it all, each keeping their place in the hierarchy of the pack - and the paseapaerro's definitely Top Dog.

La Bombonera

by andal13

I love football (soccer), and despite I prefer River Plate (eternal rival of Boca Juniors), I visited Boca Juniors' famous stadium "La Bombonera" (the bonbon case), but there was not any match that afternoon. This stadium is situated at La Boca (obviously!) and painted by local artists.

Me encanta el fútbol, y a pesar de ser simpatizante de River Plate, el eterno rival de Boca Juniors, visité el famoso estadio de Boca, "La Bombonera", si bien no había partido aquella tarde. Este estadio está ubicado en La Boca (¡obviamente!) y está decorado por pintores locales.

Beautiful Bookstore

by aladin99 about El Ateneo

Opened as a theater in 1919, it soon made the switch to become one of primier movie theaters in Buenos Aires. The first motion picture with sound was shown here in 1929. After various uses, it was restored & converted into one of the largest bookstores in 2000. A great place to look around & have some coffee at the cafe located on the old stage. You can take time to read in the books during your coffee. The different sections of books are located where the audience used to sit as well as on the beautiful balconies of the old theatre. You really shouldn't miss coming here, you won't find this tip in any guide books.

Nighttime Tango Shows

by VolsUT about Tango shows - Tango places

Many Tango street preformers come out after dark and can be found in all the nicer areas of the city. We saw many of them with huge crowds around them which is to be expected in the homeland that dance. The street preformers are not bad and if you are only kind of interested in seeing Tango it is much cheaper than seeing a show.
