Stella:

Existem muitos San Juan em Argentina. Imagino que voce queira alcançar San Juan City, capital de provincia San Juan.

Na America do Sul costumamos usar terminais rodoviarios para usar onibus. Espero que seja assim para a Argentina tambem.
Existem muitas linhas que servem estas duas cidades. Todas usam o Terminal Rodoviario como ponto de partida a San Juan.

Travel Tips for Mendoza

how to move around

by mindcrime

Mendoza is big but the city center is walkable and it’s really difficult to get lost. In the center are the five squares of the city, the main and bigger one is Plaza Independencia and the four smaller ones lying at the four corners of the main square just two blocks away. The main avenue is San Martin, the main pedestrian street is Sarmiento that crosses plaza Independencia, the main commercial street is Las Heras and the main street for nightlife is Aristides Villanueva.

There are some local buses but I never used any of them. Don’t forget that the taxis are cheap in Argentina.

The high temperatures will try to put you down for sure but the trees in every street will help to save yourself. Of course it’s better to carry always a bottle of water with you. I spent a whole day wandering around the streets of Mendoza and the only problem I had was a strange feeling that someone will take my camera. When I returned back to the hostel late in the afternoon with my camera hanging from my neck the owner came at the door screaming “are you crazy? Put that camera inside!!” Yes, unfortunately like all the big cities of Argentina isn’t the safest move to walk around like a tourist.

Jogging around the lake

by Gaspar&Floppy

All Saturdays and Sundays, the street around San Martin's lake in San Martin's park are closed to traffic, it's a good chance to jog around the lake to walk ride your bike and to enjoy one of the most beautiful parts of our park.

something quick and cheap

by mindcrime about Mr.Dog

If you travel on tight budget these two small places will feed you with some hot dogs! Mr.Dog and Bennys Burger are facing each other at Garibaldi street at the corner with de La Reta and you can just get your hot dog or sandwich and take it away or sit outside at one of the tables and wash it down with a cold Quilmes beer. They stay open 24h away so they are a good option if you return back from a club… Not so many options :)

Bandera del Ejercito de los Andes

by msocolin

This is the original flag that was taken by San Martin's army when he crossed the Andes. It was hand-embroidered by the patricias mendocinas and the religious of the Company of Mary. The flag is now kept and shown at the Casa de Gobierno.
Try to be early there, because they show it until 12.20 pm

Monument to the 'Army of the Andes'

by Bwana_Brown

Located on the top of Cerro de la Gloria (Glory Hill) in Parque General San Martin is an impressive monument to Jose de San Martin, an Argentine hero of South America's liberation from Spanish rule.

This monument, designed by Uruguayan Juan Ferrary and built between 1909-14, consists of a huge stone base with various bronze figures attached at strategic locations. There are several friezes around it's lower level depicting various stages in the journey of San Martin's 'Army of the Andes' as it crossed over into Chile in 1817 to liberate that country from Spain. Surmounting everything is a large figure holding aloft broken chains, signifying the break from Spain. In a way, the scenes displayed on the monument reminded us of the Voortrekker Monument outside Pretoria, commemorating the tribulations of the early Dutch settlers in South Africa.

The winding road that leads to this high elevation in the park also offers some nice views out over Mendoza.
