Trip Report Back from 2 weeks in Argentina

Jump to last reply

We recently got back from a 2-weeks (first time) Argentina trip, and it was fantastic!!! I will not go into day-by-day details, I really do not have the gift of writing, but I will try to provide some info about our trip, to hopefully help others, the way this board helped me planning.

Our trip: 2 nights in Iguazu, 3 nights in Puerto Madryn, 3 nights in El Calafate, 1 night in El Chatlen and 3 nights in Buenos Aires.

Normally, I plan all our trips myself, with the help of this board and TA. This time, we used WOW Argentina as a travel planning agency, mostly to help with domestic flights coordination and finding an English-speaking guide and driver in Pen. Valdes. They answered all the emails promptly, provided good info and delivered everything they promised.

Flights: We flew Continental from Newark (each time with a stop over in Houston) and Aerolineas in Argentina. Our original CO flight was delayed almost 2 hours, which would have only left us about 30 minutes in Houston, but we went to the airport on time anyway. Luckily, when we got there, there was an earlier Houston flight leaving in about an hour, so we were able to take that one instead and make our connection. We had no problems with any flight, even though we checked our bags each time. I know a lot of people here complain about Aerolineas, canceled or delayed flights, but we really had no problems. Plus, they fed us on all flights, even the short ones. Not a real, full meal, but a sandwich and a cookie, plus drinks, coffee and tea. We liked that, especially on the early morning flights – and considering that CO did not give us any food on the domestic flights.
