Hi,

Myself and a friend are about to head to Buenos Aires and have no idea about which is a good area to stay in and where to definitely not stay. If someone could help us out that would be great and any accomodation suggestions would be welcome!!! Also if anyone has any suggestions about where is good to visit in North Argentina as we will be heading down from Iguacu falls!

Hi Sinky,

I´m just back from Buenos Aires and the North of Argentina.

You´ll can visit on the way down to Buenos Aires :

- a Labyrinth in Montecarlo ( ca. 120 km from the Iguazu Falls)

I´ve been there last year. It´s made of Hedges and 4 km long.
In the Parque Vortisch. Which is also great to see and stay.

- the Jesuit Ruins in San Iganizio

I´ve been in San Ignazio Mini. It´s worth a visit. To see 200
years old trees... but they offer a guidet tour in spanish
only.

So I recommand you to go to

- the Jesuit Ruins in Trinitad/ Paraguay
I´ve been there this year. A young woman did a guidet tour in
german. She works there since 1 month and her tour was unique.
her husband offer guidet tours in english.

- Posadas has less offerings for tourists. But you´ll can book an
excursion to the Marshland "Esteros Ibera" there. It´s advisable to
go by an excursion from a travel agency. Because you´ll otherwise
catch the Esteros Ibera very circumstantially. You´ll have to go
over Mercedes and stay one night there. The bus back leaves Carlos
Pelegrini ( the main town there ) on 4.00 o´clock in the early
morning...
I´ve been there last year and it was an unforgetable adventure.

- in the state provinc "Entre Rios" are some hot springs.

- Cordoba is worth a vistit for every case

- Buenos Aires:

I stayed at the Correcaminos Hostel ( San Telmo) there.
for 18 Peso/night in a shared bedroom. Inkl. breakfast and
Internet. They have a billard table and a commun tv-room.
There´s a tango teacher.

Actually would I go to the www.clanhostel.com. but it was
booked out. They offer for ?/night inkl. free bike and
internet. They ´ve also a language school and a fitness
centre.

it would be to much to tell you here what to do in Buenos Aires. A city which is 24 hours in move. I should more know about your interests to give you any advice.

I have been in Argentina and here`s what I can recommend you:

Where to stay in Buenos Aires: beware with San Telmo, City Center and Palermo Hollywood, some people will recommend then and they have nice areas but not so nice ones too. To be 100% safe you may consider Recoleta or Palermo, they are centrally located and very safe and beautiful, near attractions, bars and all.

For affordable prices you hace either hostels or flats. You can find many flats at www.alojargentina.com. A well located hostel is The Recoleta Hostel website at www.hostelz.com.

On North Argentina: Iguazú Falls is amazing, you cannot miss it, it's always beenn my nº1 choice. Around there you can also visit the wanda mines, jesuitic ruins, regional zoo, and many small towns with their own mini water falls, they are cute! Oh! And if you can afford it I would definitely get to yacutinga lodge, it's in the middle of the jungle for real. You may want to contact Veronica at [email protected], she usually has special rates for it.
