how tough to drive in Mendoza

by olyclub

we will be in Mendoza from 4-04 to 4-10. i will be renting a car to go from Mendoza to other places, and wonder if i should have a car in Mendoza. we have been to other AR cities where the traffic is treacherous. is it difficult for a stranger to cope with Mendoza driving? thanks.

Hi there, I didn't find driving in Mendoza a problem. There are a few one way roads so make sure you get a map and try to plan your route before you set out so that you can position yourself in the right lanes but I think you will be fine.

Cheers,
Rhianon

Re: how tough to drive in Mendoza

We had no problems driving in and around Mendoza other than the hazards of the not-too-scale maps provided to the various vineyards. Much of the city area itself is laid out on a grid with wide streets and the one-way system is not difficult to suss out. If you've driven elsewhere in Argentina you should have no problems coping with Mendoza at all. The drive up into the mountains to Puente de Incas is spectacular, don't miss it!

See the desert races

by Upward

About half an hour outside of Mendoza is a desert 'race track'. Unfortunately, I was completely lost and I can't give any account of how to get to these races. I can say that its a great time for an asado and drinks while buggys and motos pass only a few feet away. I can only suggest asking your hostel/hotel receptionist or meeting a local for information about these races.

MENDOZA : BODEGAS

by swesn

Mendoza is situated at the foot of the Andes and is famous for the production of grapes and wine. Many bodegas welcome visitors.

It is easier if you have a car to visit the various bodegas, located a few kilometres from the city in different directions. Otherwise, take a restrictive guided tour.

Some wineries are of the old-fashioned, traditional sort. Some called themselves ‘Bodega Artesania’, the artistic bodega, claiming to hand-pick the grapes, hand-label the bottles, everything is done personally. Others are modern wineries with metallic pipings.

Visit the different types for a varied experience. The tours seem to start when a group of tourists, maybe up to 10, have gathered. They are free, and they always end with a wine-tasting session, for they hope you will purchase a few bottles when you leave.

The bodegas have different opening and closing hours. In a car, you can simply drive to another one, if you find one closed.

Museo del pasado Cuyano

by mindcrime

This museum is the Historical Museum of Mendoza. It is open Monday-Friday 9:00-13:00 and it’s located in an old house of Italian style that was built in 1873. I found its collection kind of boring but I would found any museum boring after the amazing sceneries I've seen up on the mountains of the Andes!

What you can see here is an arm collection, many things about San Martin (again!), historical documents and books, old furniture from colonial era and generally items from 19th century.

Plaza at the City Centre

by Bwana_Brown

Of all the Plazas in Mendoza, Independencia is where most of the action takes place. This large square plaza is the centrepiece of the city and serves as it's focal point, with the other four smaller plazas located one block away from it's four corners.

Our first experience here was on a Friday night after our day spent touring the winery and the other fine points of Mendoza. Strolling from our hotel to Av. Sarmiento, in search of a good restaurant, we passed through this behive of activity as dusk was falling. Plaza Independencia was alive with vendors selling their goods, the people of the city just relaxing beneath it's huge trees and crews were busy running wires for what appeared to be a concert about to start.

This whole idea of centering the city around beautiful plazas seems like a brilliant idea to me!
