First trip to Argentina - should we just stay in Buenos Aires?

Jump to last reply

I really need advice for our trip to Argentina in October.

My husband will be at a conference in Buenos Aires October 5 to 6. We arrive on the 3rd. I booked the flights right away in order to use my Aeroplan miles, and we thought it would be good idea to add a visit to Chile to the trip, so on October 12 we fly from BA to Santiago, then fly to Toronto on October 20. So my first mistake was booking the flights before doing any real research on the destinations, because now that I've started researching Argentina I realize that there is so much to see that it would have been better to just stick to one country as we really don't have enough time to do much.

If we leave BA the evening of October 6, would we have enough time to fly to Iguazu Falls and also visit Salta and the Northwest? Because of our flights we would have to return to BA by October 11 at the latest. Or should we forget about Salta and just do a 2 night trip to Iguazu and spend the rest of the time in Buenos Aires? If so, any recommendations for a well-located, reasonably priced hotel in the Ricoleta area?

Any good day trips from BA instead?

My husband would also appreciate recommendations for the best tango shows to attend.

Thanks for your help.
