I need some help deciding
I am landing in Buenos aires the 10th of march for a 4 month tour in south america. I could go to first to

el calafate - puerto mont - santiago - cordoba - iguazu
(After this i will continue my route further up in the direction of bolivia)
Is there a good connection from cordoba to iguazu?

or i could go from BA first to iguazu, then to
BA - el calafate - puerto mont - santiago - cordoba - and then furter up

I guess that either way i will pass BA twice.The second issue is time, i don't want to lose too much time on huge distances.

So what would be the easiest and the best do you think, transport and time wise. any advies is welcome.

If you're flying in and out of BsAs, no wonder you'll call there twice :)

Iguazu is worth your while, I wouldn't cut that out. Cordoba-Iguazu would typically take you through Santa Fe (which is a nice place if you have a day to spare), and then either Corrientes (nice as well, but no accommodation) or Urugaiana (dead boring). But I'm almost certain there's also a direct connection between Santa Fe and Iguazu, and probably even between Cordoba and Iguazu.

From Iguazu to Bolivia is a time-consuming but very interesting journey through Paraguay (Iguazu - Asuncion - Pozo Colorado - Villazon), or alternatively through northern Argentina (Iguazu - Corrientes - Resistencia - Salta - La Quiaca). Take 2 days for the Argentinian option; the Paraguyan option is wholly dependent on road conditions (can be anything between 24 hours and a week).

Thanks for the information, paraguay wasn't a part of the plan but maybe now i will consider it.
