"Mendoza - county of good wine and sun :-)" Top 5 Page for this destination Mendoza by Trekki

Mendoza Travel Guide: 405 reviews and 1,045 photos

(needed to delete some things here, including dreams and the former intro picture. I simply cannot stand this mountain featuring my Mendoza Intro page.
One day I might add some intro info)

Update, July 18, 2007:
I have linked videos of Cat Stevens and Eagles to my nightlife tip :-))

Instead - a symbol of Mendoza - the wine :-) And friendship.

It is Claudia, my dear friend and owner of Hostal Casa Pueblo in Mendoza, and Chrischa, our "adopted son" (hihi).
In front on Chandon Bodega, one of the most famous ones of Provincia Mendoza.

And as Mark (mtncorg) nicely wrote that all mountain oriented VT-ers should consider Mendoza and surroundings - go hiking in the mountains :-))

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:fantastic landscapes, nice people - and "Casa Pueblo" and my friends :-)
  • Cons:oh well, it has some cons - but more individual ones

    Really good warning and danger tips. Terrible when you are a good samaritan and get ripped off! I really feel that you may want to return here again, back to your "other" family, I'm sure you would have a wonderful time once again.

    Carne asado de Argentina makes it watering in my month! I can easily understand why your stay was extended. Sounds like you had a great time!

    Very helpful hiking tips. It's been difficult to find hiking and climbing information up here around Salta, looks like there will be much more possibilities in Mendoza.

    Excellent page with useful maps and interesting impressions. I could appreciate stunning sceneries of several pics, while listening the Eagles (never saw this clip of my favorite group before so added it to my YouTube favorite list). Thanks Ingrid!
