Renting an apartment in Mendoza

by Soumo

Can someone please recommend a nice two bedroom apartment for rent in Mendoza? I'll be there in July this year for two months and I'm looking for a quiet and clean area. Thanks in advance for your reply.

RE: Renting an apartment in Mendoza

by justinelack

I know the owner of several buildings that rent out apartments for tourists (temporary). They do not speak English but I can help you if you wish. I can make you reservations and what ever you might need. The one I am thinking is brand new. It actually has one double bed and a futon. It is inexpensive, with private bathroom and a small kitchen. Microwave, fridge, double burner etc... A/C and Heat. I moved here with my boyfriend. He is Argentine and I am British. We met in Atlanta Georgia. And now we live here. But I can guarantee this place. It is very nice and in the heart of Downtown. Please let me know what you think. If u send me your email, I will send some photos. Also, you can visit their webpage at http://www.edificioaguilarrech.com. My job is web design and I created that page and others for them, that is how I know of them. Thanks Justine

Travel Tips for Mendoza

Water in a desert

by TheWanderingCamel

With only 7 to 8 inches of rain a year, Mendoza's wine industry survives in a desert due to a system of irrigation first developed by the Huarpe Indians long before the place was colonised by the Spanish in the 16th century. Just as the Indians channelled the runoff from the snow capped peaks into a complex network of irrigation channels to grow their crops of corn and vegetables, the wine growers even today use a complex system of irrigation canals that run though the vineyards to provide their vines with a precisely controlled supply of water that ensures optimum growth and yet protects the grape berries from becoming water-logged and fragile.

The combination of low rainfall, low humidity and high elevation combined with this method of flood irrigation keeps fungi and other agricultural pests at bay, allowing the vineyards to be free of pesticides with many being completely organic. A large, cheap labour market (many itinerate workers come to Mendoza from Bolivia at peak times throughout the year) allows the continuation of labour intensive vineyard practices such as the opening and closing of the individual channels and even hand picking at some vineyards that are long-gone from other wine-growing areas around the world.

One day....

by TheWanderingCamel

In operation from 1910 until its closure in 1984 following an earthquake, the Ferrocarril Trasandino Los Andes - Mendoza (Trans-Andean Los Andes -Mendoza Railway) was one of the great railway journeys of the world. A narrow gauge of 1 m with rack railway sections, the mountain railway joined the gap from Mendoza to Buenos Aires and Los Andes to Santiago. Now it looks as though it is set to run again in the not too distant future. Agreements have been signed between Argentina and Chile and work set in motion that hopefully will see trains on the tracks again by 2010. The timeline (and the estimated cost of US$460 million) may prove to be a bit of wishful thinking but whenever it is finished, it is going to be 150 miles of rail traveller's heaven, though whether it will run passenger services is yet to be seen - the last few years it was in service only for freight and competing with the highway and cheap buses may prove too hard.

Dramatic scenery all the way from Mendoza to the mile long Cumbre tunnel at 10486 feet, and then a dizzying descent of 7000 feet in just 35 miles wouldl make this one fantastic train ride. Meantime, the tracks and bridges, signals, tunnels and snow shelters of the old railway can be seen as you travel the RN-7 up from Mendoza.

Skiing

by trvlrtom

Los Penitentes ski centre, located about 175 km from the city of Mendoza, has pretty good skiing in July. While not on the scale of Las LeƱas further to the south, this area is easy to reach and less expensive. In downtown Mendoza there are many shops that rent out all the equipment you need and can arrange transportation if needed.

The Old Centre of Mendoza

by Bwana_Brown

Mendoza is famous for it's beautiful Plazas and Parques. We soon found out why as we walked from the ruins of the old church into the adjoining Plaza Pedro del Castillo, named after the man who founded the city in 1561 after crossing over the Andes from Chile. This square commemorates the original centre of the city, with the large frieze in the foreground depicting what the city looked like before the great earthquake of 1861. The frieze is based on a single surviving illustration of the city sky-line from those days almost 150-years ago (one-third of the city's population of 18,000 souls lost their lives during the earthquake).

When the square was being developed and the distant fountain installed, excavations revealed two older fountains that had been buried over the centuries. As a result, the Museo Fundacional was built to protect and allow viewing of these and other preserved artifacts of the early days of Mendoza.
