[posted elsewhere but also here for the most expert advice...] Am currently doing draft planning for a 14-17 day trip to Argentina 1Q12. Due to the limited time we will only visit the northern part of the country. BA, Iguassu, Colonia UR are already on the list and probably take up roughly half the time. For the remaining time I am considering the Mendoza area, Salta area, or maybe even both. I don't think there's enough time to include Cordoba. We are midrange actives. Enjoy hiking, rafting, horsebacking, wine country, cultural aspects, and mountain terrain. Would love to spend a few days at an estanzia. Any general recommendations or guidance for the time budget? and for estanzias in the region?
