English Language School in Mendoza

by Soumo

Does any one know of a good English Language School in Mendoza?

RE: English Language School in Mendoza

by justinelack

Anglo Institute in Godoy Cruz is suppose to be good, But what do you want to do. A school for kids to learn regular school or a school to learn English? I moved here last year and my children did not speak Spanish. I was advised to help them learn Spanish first, then admit them in a Public school. Let me know and I can help you.

Travel Tips for Mendoza

Cold Beer - Hot Afternoons!

by Bwana_Brown

The friendly people of Mendoza seem to enjoy their numerous sidewalk cafes and restaurants, and who can blame them on endless sunny summer days!

At noon and into the early afternoon we saw many groups sitting at tables just having a cold beer or wine as they talked. Beer generally comes in large bottles in Argentina, although small and mid-sized bottles are also available. I found that, sitting in the heat, it made much more sense to just go with a large (almost 1 litre) bottle. The cost was usually about A$5 (US$1.80). The employee coming out the door, with his blazing window BBQ pit to the left, gave me a big smile when he realized that I had just taken his picture!

Maybe this helps them along with their afternoon siesta between 1-5 PM when many of the shops close!

Day Trip

by Bwana_Brown

One of the two tours included in our 4-day package air/hotel/tours deal for the Mendoza area included an all-day excursion to the high Andes. I arranged the overall 2-week Argentinian tour package from Canada by internet/email with Ripio Turismo and they made the local arrangements with Huentata Servicios Touristico. I simply told them where we wanted to go and for how long and they made the arrangements and fitted the pieces together. This part of our Argentina vacation cost US$500 per person for the flights, transportation, 4 nights accommodations, breakfast and our Winery/City and Andes tours.

We had a nice-sized airconditioned Mercedes-Benz minibus, with a great driver and two tour guides, fluent in both Spanish and English. The guides explained things to us as we were driving up the impressive Mendoza River valley toward the continental divide on the Chilean border. There were also rest stops for drinks or washroom facilities as well as several stops at the major attractions along this very scenic drive (see my 'Off the Beaten Path' tips for a glimpse of some of the things we did).

Altogether, it was a very pleasant outing for the 400-km (250-mile) round trip. All the arrangements made by Ripio for both Mendoza and Iguazu Falls worked fantastically well, and were reasonably priced too!

Wine tasting notes

by TheWanderingCamel

Winery visits in Mendoza are not casual affairs. There's no just turning up at a cellar door at your own convenience such as we are used to in Australia, tasting some (or all) of the wines as you please. Every winery requires you to book and you will only gain admittance if the guy on the gate has you in his book! (photo 1). Following that there will be a tour of the wine making process - through the different rooms of the winery, past gigantic steel tanks of whites and high stacks of barrels of reds (photo 2), your guide reeling off lots of facts and figures as you go. Some visits will be very formal, no wine tasted until the tour is over and you're back in the tasting room where you'll be offered finished vintages. Others are more relaxed and you'll tap into barrels (photo 3) as you go, maybe tasting wines at different stages of their development as you make your way through the winery to the final tasting.

We visited three vineyards in one day and each offered a very different experience. There's a tip on each one to follow this general introduction.

We had a hire car and drove ourselves around. If you're doing it this way, it's a good idea to really suss out just where the wineries are and plan your visits to follow logically as the vineyards do cover a very large area and not all roads are well sign-posted. Tours start at a set time and can include different language groups so you really don't want to be late. Don't try to visit too many wineries in one day - 3, or 4 at most, is ideal.

Your hotel or the Vines at Mendoza Tasting Room will be able to help you plan the day and make your bookings. Your hotel will almost certainly be able to provide you with a map and winery information . Alternatively, if you want to let someone else do the driving, there are any number of wine tour companies operating in Mendoza or you could hire a car and driver for the day - the charge should be very reasonable.

The Plazas

by realde14

Mendoza's center is very easily visited as the streets are laid out in a grid system. There are several nice Plazas or squares, Plaza Independencia and Plaza Espanaw ith its tiles are especially nice for sitting down and relax.

Horses of Marly

by msocolin

Right after entering the Parque General San Martin, you'll see the Caballitos de Marly (little Marly horses). These white carrara marble sculptures where bought in 1911 to a french firm. They are actually a reproduction. The originals were made between 1740 and 1745, and currently stand at the Place de la Concorde in Paris.
