2 weeks in Argentina - Bucket List Trip
Jun 18 - Jun 30, 2023
We just got back from 2 weeks in Argentina, with brief side excursions to Brazil and Uruguay. Jessica and Kristy helped plan out all the details and everything went smoothly. Even though we speak a little bit of Spanish, the english speaking guides were much appreciated. The guided cemetery tour of Recoleta had so much interesting historical information that we would have missed if we had visited on our own. Also the Gaucho ranch tour, along with the visits to the local artisans in San Antonio de Areco, was amazing. Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls and Colonia, Uruguay all in one trip! We felt so lucky to be able to take it all in with a relaxed attitude because we knew all the details and transfers were taken care of by Kim Kim.
We would not hesitate to book with them again!
L Hotel Palermo is in a great location for restaurants, markets and walking. It's a small boutique hotel with very friendly staff and has a well maintained property. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety to choose from. The only down side is the nightlife nearby on weekends kept us awake until the early morning hours. Earplugs definitely came in handy.
Tony was our guide on this food tour. He did a great job introducing us to some local cuisine and wines from Argentina. We even went back and visited some of the restaurants on our own later in the trip. Would highly recommend!
The Brazilian side of the falls was about a half day tour. It was a different perspective to take in the falls from this side and helped us appreciate the Argentinian side even more. We ended up taking the boat trip up to the falls from here which was fun and WET! The best part of visiting this side of the falls with the guides was their help in navigating the border and passport control station.
The Argentinian side of the falls has great walking trails and numerous viewpoints to take the falls in. It was by far the best side to view the falls if you only have one day.
There is so much to see in Buenos Aires, so this was a big help in hitting the highlights and learning the history of the city and country. Walking through the Boca neighborhood and the Recoleta cemetery were the highlights.
