I loved this reservation but it's better to visit it on your own so you can get to walk it through and through. Guided tours are too short. It features an old Norman style hotel, which was looted by the 1976 military Junta so you...More

I you can, by all means rent a car. It need not be a 4x4; just make sure that it has good clearance and a good engine. You will be climbing mightily. After leaving Mendoza to the North (this it the only time where it...More

Basically, this is a ruins of a hotel/spa. The famous Villavicencio water bubbles up from a spring. Take a few empty bottles to fill and you'll have sweet water to drink for the rest of your trip.

This is a very nice and interesting ride going up the Andes... Views are very interesting... The roads are tricky and I would never drive it by myself... A tour is the only way to do it.. Some of the views are outstanding

Since we weren't very interested in wine tours(espeically in winter time) we found out there weren't much to do in Mendoza. We ended up booking VIllavicencio Day Tour through argentina4u.com. Our choice was excellent! The booking process was easy, we were picked up on time,...More
