Bariloche, Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires in March

Jump to last reply

So I'm a little further deeper into planning our trip to Uruguay/Argentina in late February/early March. Thanks so much to all who replied to my earlier post - it really got me researching. Now I have a few questions that will help us nail down dates so that we can purchase tickets.

Here's what we have so far:

JFK - Montevideo around 2/20/17 (as I mentioned earlier, this leg is not negotiable, as our friends will be picking us up at the airport. We'll spend a night there under their experienced guidance, then drive back to their home in Punta del Este the next day and spend a few days there).

Punta del Este - Bariloche around 2/25/17
Here's where we need the most help. How many days here, stay in or out of the town, rent a car or not? We've read about Turiser's Puerto Blest sailing trip, riding bikes at circuito chico (20 km ride), DH may want to play golf at Llao Llao. Our friend had mentioned an area considered "little switzerland" or something like that - is that in Bariloche or a drive? Suggestions for other things to see or do? We are flexible (until we purchase our tickets...) and would love advice about this leg.

Bariloche - Iguazu Falls (around 3/2?)
Staying in Puerto Iguazu...on the fence about spending the money to acquire Brazilian visas. I've read all sorts of advice on trying to get into the Brazilian side without a visa and have to say I'm not keen on the idea. If we only see the Argentinan side, the we'll probably stay two nights so we have the one full day for the park. Think we'd stay in town somewhere near the bus station.

Iguazu Falls - Buenos Aires (around 3/4 or 5)
Would like to find an apartment somewhere in Palermo or Recolata
Have read about lots of things within the city - cemetery, San Telmo, river area, Teatro Colon tour, etc. Day trips to Colonia del Sacramento, Tigre, others?

We're relatively open-ended, so could stay till 3/13 or 14.

Any advice most welcome - I'd really like to nail down these plane tickets since we have five flights to book. Biggest question mark for me is Bariloche - how long, rent a car or not, stay in or out of town.

Thanks as always. Fodors forums are unparalleled.
