In a country with so much beauty

In a country with so much beauty and things to do, Mendoza is a highlight. With the Andes acting a backdrop to most of the scenes how could you not enjoy it already. If you love wine than you have already heard of this region for it produces up to 80% of Argentia's wine. And what makes that a bit odd is that this place is a desert. If you are into physical activities, this is also a place for you. With Cerro Aconcagua, the hightest peak in the Americas can occupy anyone who wants to climb it for about 2 weeks. If you enjoy culinary delights, hey this Argentia, some of the best steaks around. Another recommedation is to try the local chocolate, you need to keep your energy up somehow for all that adventure out there. If you are overlanding it from Buenos Aires, this is a natural stop along the way and one that can easily hold you there for longer than you expected.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Natual beauty, great adventure, and great food.
  • Cons:Can get swamped with local tourists at times.
  • In a nutshell:Well worth the trip.
