    It was great, facilities & staff
    The location I think is perfect because you get to know real local things! Gives you time to see much more and is very easy to go to all the touristic spots ! the ''centro'' is very noisy and Villa Urquiza (where the hotel is) is not as far as everybody thinks
    they have a good service and helpful staff
    Congrats Ker Urquiza and see you next time!

Buenos Aires to Santiago, Chile by land??

by GlobeTrekr

Can anybody help me out with how to get from BA to Santiago by bus? If by bus, how long is the trip and what is the price range of tickets? From a previous post, I read that the trip from Mendoza to Santiago is very scenic and from BA to Menoza is fairly flat and non scenic. Is this correct? Is the pass through the Andes from Mendoza to Santiago in good condition (passable) in early Oct?

Any places worth stopping over at other than Mendoza?

Trip will take about 20 hours and will cost between 180 (semi cama) and 230 (cama ejec) pesos.

happy travels

There are several other places that are certainly worth visiting, really depends on what you are wanting to experience. San Rafael and San Luis are worth considering. You certainly could visit Córdoba and the surrounding area before going on west.

And yes, the trip between Buenos Aires to Mendoza is fairly flat, but most of the buses would be overnight so you would be asleep anyway.

As for the pass, yes you should have no problems in October and it is very scenic. However, you may wish to take a day trip up into the Andes prior since you would not have an opportunity to get off the bus to enjoy much on the direct to Santiago.

Aside from January and February you do need to monitor the pass and whether it is open. Although the vast majority of the closures are in June/July/August, it is not unknown in Spring.
Get the best class of bus for a BA-Bariloche or BA-Santiago trip. It is money well spent for the comfort level. If you break the trip in Mendoza, there are lots of companies going across from there to Santiago.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Departure tax

by Gypsystravels

I'm not sure if this applies to every single country, but when leaving Buenos Aires you must pay a departure tax before you are allowed to go through security.

You can pay the tax in either Argentinian pesos or American Dollars. I didn't notice any other currency accepted, but it is quite possible you can probably pay with Euros as well. You are then given your proof of payment and are allowed to make your way through security.

The best part was that the departure tax window was located in front of the VAT window, so if you are also receiving VAT money you don't have to dig into your pockets to pay the departure tax you can pay it with the funds you just recieved at the VAT.

The price of the departure tax was approximately $18 US and you can pay in US or Argentinian pesos.

Charity Wine Tasting

by cjg1

Each year during the Cow Do, Alex hosts a charity wine tasting. He usually has a selection of four to six wines at each and platters of food to go with it. Then he presents each and discusses with the group and individuals what they think of each and does a great job remembering what you liked for those purchasing moments later.

This is a private event for members of a different website that I am commenting on but if you are in town and stop he will take the time to sample some with you and give you the best service as well.

The best part of these tastings is that everyone contributes a Cow Do suggested 100 pesos and all of the proceeds go to a children's hospital in town.

The king of Tango

by TheWanderingCamel

Carlos Gardel has been dead for over 70 years but to Argentinians everywhere he is the heart and soul of tango. Still today his portrait is to be seen everywhere and his records sell in millions. Born in France in 1890, he began his singing career in 1914, singing and writing songs and starring in films that made him a legend throughout South America. When he was killed in a plane crash in Colombia in 1935 the Latin-American world went into mourning and as his body was transported via New York, Rio and Montevideo to its final resting place in Buenos Aires thousands upon thousands of heartbroken fans paid him homage.

Devotees still visit his grave which is always adorned with fresh flowers, and often a lit cigarette in the hand of the full-sized statue, on his tomb in La Chacarita Cemetery in Palermo Hollywood (Avenida. Guzman. Subte B: Frederico Lacroze)

Listen to his singing here

A class act of a bookstore

by mrtourne about Libreria El Ateneo - Grand Splendid

Located on Avenida Santa Fe, steps away from Avenida Callao, the El Ateneo - Grand Splendid bookstore is a total beauty. Located in what used to be one of the msot beautiful movie theatres in the city (the Grand Splendid), which went south in the era of the multiplex, the El Ateneo chain has done a great job of preserving the interior while at the same time accomodating for a multilevel book shopping space. Make sure to walk in, check the beautiful,gold-leafed balconies, the stage (which now is used as a cafe) and look up to one of the most ellaborate ceilings you'll see in a bookstore anywhere. Prices vary, depending on the book - you can find books in foreign languages too, and a good selection of coffee table books with photographs of Argentina
