Great, lets join. I am in Mar de las Pampas and do have the same problem...

To make it worse, my flight to Villa Gesell from BA went to Mar del Plata today, with a delay of course, then van shuttle back north to Gesell, then taxi on completely ruined and flooded sand ways.

Arrived, hotel internet did not work, 3 hours to find a new place.

At least it is presently not raining :).

Good luck with your search! As long as it is dry I suggest 4WD and horseback riding. When wet: cinema.

Go to "Sierra de La Ventana is a picturesque small town in Tornquist Partido in the southeast of the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. With a population of 1,819 inhabitants (2001 census [INDEC]), it is one of the most attractive tourist centres in the Province and has numerous recreation areas and parks.

The town, originally called Villa Tívoli Argentina, was founded on 17 January 1908 by Diedrich Meyer, and developed around the railway station. It was later renamed Sierra del La Ventana after the nearby 1,186 m rocky peak La Ventana, part of the Ventana System, which has a natural rock formation containing an opening or 'window' 9 m wide and 11 m high. In 1959 the peak was declared a Natural Monument.

A large, luxurious hotel resort, Club Hotel de la Ventana, was opened in 1911 near Villa Ventana, 17 km from the town. For a brief period it attracted the rich and famous but soon suffered from the effects of World War I in Europe and closed in 1920. Between 1940 and 1946 it was used to intern some of the crew of the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee after it was scuttled outside the harbour of Montevideo, Uruguay, by its captain, Hans Langsdorff, at the end of the Battle of the River Plate." Thank you, "wikipedia!"
