    Mendoza Things to Do

    I just got back from an Amazing Trip to Mendoza, Argentina. We spent a week in Mendoz at the Park Hyatt Hotel (great great hotel) and enjoyed many wonderful activities. I would recommend that if you are in Mendoza on a Wednesday night that you go to The Vines of Mendoza's Wine Makers Night on Wednesdays from 7-9 on Calle Espejo. We really enjoyed...

  • The "Belgium" guy was in Buenos Aires

    Mendoza Warnings and Dangers

Corrientes close to Puerto Madero that fits the description perfectly; said he was Belgium, a bit fat, blue eyes, late 30ies/start 40ies etc. Said he was robbed by three kids that asked for cigarettes at the bus terminal (in...

    San Rafael Things to Do

    Valentín Bianchi winery is located just north of San Rafael, on the road to Mendoza. The large winery has an excellent tour, similar to other established wineries in the region, that explains the production process.

    Puente del Inca Warnings and Dangers

    This view of Puente del Inca was taken looking up the Cuevas River toward the main ridge of the Andes in the distance. The spa here was developed into a luxury resort in 1925 with the construction of a stone hotel, church and hot-springs bathhouse. It could be easily reached by rail, since a track from Mendoza to Chile had been constructed in the...

    Puente del Inca Things to Do

    Heeding the advice of VT-member 'canuckmike', I took my footwear off when I entered the depths of the thermal spa! The warm 35 degC (94 degF) water felt great as it washed over my feet, even though the water temperature has reportedly dropped since the early years of the 1900s.There are all sorts of baths and small rooms located in the spa, all of...

Rincón del Atuel

  • richmonder63's Profile Photo

    by richmonder63 Written Jan 16, 2008

    I took a canyon day tour from San Rafael. In 2003, it cost $10 US, and paid another $5 for the optional one hour whitewater rafting. The canyon was great for the variety of different landscapes and colorful geology. Although it is a national park, it is also a major hydroelectric project with many man-made dams and lakes.
    The whitewater rafting was great when I was there. It was only class 3 and maybe 4, but no pauses for slow water. The river flowed swiftly for the whole hour.
