Rach-a has indicated that this thread is about Argentina

Hi there people. I am planning on going to Argentina late this year.

Can anyone tell me any good guides, or places to visit, or anywhere they have particularly enjoyed in Argentina (this includes trekking, nightlife, music scenes, ancient ruins or anything that comes into mind)? I would be really appreciative of any information either locals or travellers alike could give me. Also where is good to know spanish as I kind of only know 'Hola' and 'Gracias'?

I would also like to know if possible, how I would go about travelling there and then a side trip to Rio De Janeiro before returning to the uk. I have heard of these Air Passes but am not sure how to go about organising one or the average cost etc. If anyone could shed some light on this I would also be grateful.

Muchas Gracias

Rach :)

i know it is a lot but this is just a bit of what you will see in my country.

Tell me what else you need.

About Spanish The are several free classes on Internet It would be a good idea to start long before coming. I know some institutes send material to people and then correct their papers but of course they are paid. If you can get a free course on Internet it would be ideal.

Hope you can make it.

i am glad you found the first one very informative.
there are areas which are very good for adventure activities. trecking
rock climbing, canoing, expeditions, etc.
it is sth that people like me who live in buenos aires dont know much.
here the weird thing you can do is ballooing, helicopter and other things.

if you can afford the glaciars, dont miss it. and together with it the city of Usuahia. a tour there would take a week as far as i remember.
in the north english people like salta. Northwest. and you are not very far from the waterfalls northeast. again you can make the 2 tings in a weeek.
I think that those are the spots you cant miss. and then of course buenos aires. and you need again at least one week.

i wish you all the luck enjoy preparing a trip. It is sth i cannot do now.
for the moment i am starting classes again and holidays are over.
send me an e mail when you finish.
regards.
isabel
