English in Mendoza & Santiago

by bkq

I don't speak Spanish (yet), but will be visiting Argentina in February and March. I will be traveling alone. Will it be difficult for me to get by using English in Mendoza and Santiago?

Have you been to Buenos Aires by chance? I was told I would have no problem using English there.

Aside from hotels and tourist services you will not find that many English speakers in Santiago. Learn a few phrases before you come - you can learn a surprising amount in a month - but the main problem will be understanding people's answers. If you make an effort then others are likely to make an effort too and the rest is sign language.

yeah i've been to BA. same story, only the argentinians are a little more, shall i say, proud of their language and culture. they may not be as helpful. i have a friend from BA. i asked her why most argentinians are "proud". she said because BA is the cultural and intellectual mecca of south america, like european. i think she forgot about that little town called sao paulo. :)
but yes, as the above poster said, sign language, patience, smiles and learning a few key phrases will earn their respect and take you further.

Biking the Andes to Aconcagua

by micha60

Mendoza is an excellent starting point for all kind of outdoor activities,mainly trekking, hiking and of course, biking.
Downtown you'll find quite a few agencies and tour operators.
My friend Klaus and I took the bus in Mendoza and went to Malargüe, where we started our Andes-cross to Chile. In Chile we went up to Portillo (ski-resort), from there up an endless winding dirtroad up to 'Cristo Redentor' (about 3.800 m above sealevel).
The view was excellent, but too many tourists in buses came up there from the Argentina side of the Andes.
We got our kicks when riding the wild downhill to Puente del Inca, passing by the basecamp of the Aconcagua (6.962 m).
We saw the snow-covered Aconcagua in full beauty - no clouds, just perfect!!!

The next day we rode our bikes from Puente del Inca to Uspallata, and then one day later our Andes tour ended up in Mendoza, from where we had started 2 weeks ago. bring a good bike, not to much 'stuff', and lots of fitness!

Underground Chamber in Plaza Pedro del Castillo

by msocolin

Near the fountain at the Plaza Pedro del Castillo, there're stairs that take you to the underground chamber. To go in you have to have a guide, who can be reached at the Area Fundacional Museum. Inside the chamber you'll find two other fountains that lie exactly under the one at the square. Additionally, these two underground fountains were built one on top of the other.
The lower one is the 1810 Fountain, and the upper one is a fountain that was built in 1930.
In 1861, when the earthquake destroyed Mendoza, it destroyed the square and everything it had. Years later the square was used as a slaughterhouse, and you'll see rests of bones and other things in the walls of the chamber.
In 1930 a new fountain was built, on top of the 1810 fountain. That same year was the first military coup d'etat in Argentina, and in 1931 the military government had the fountain covered and a flag was put on top of the cover.
Since 1993, when the square was remodelled, there's a new working fountain.
