Seeksocean and Friends- Buenos Aires/Mendoza/Montevideo/Iguazu/BA

Jump to last reply

You are all probably rolling your eyes and sighing.."Not Seeks again!" Well, here I am and as usual, our plans have...changed....no let's just say, evolved. I'd love your opinions on what could be our new plan. Here goes...this is all around Argentina's highest of high season for 6 of us.

Five nights in BA at the Mine Hotel, overnight bus to Mendoza and 3 nights at Casa Glebinias. Fly to Montevideo via BA and stay at the Hotel Cala di Volpe for 4 nights. Fly, or boat from Montevideo back to BA and head to Iguazu and stay at the Panoramic Hotel for two nights. Fly back to BA for 2 last nights at the Mine Hotel.

My questions are: Is there enough to keep us busy for 4 nights in Montevideo? I thought maybe one day a trip to Punta del Este....is that realistic? Maybe a day trip to Colonia?

Punta del Este and/or Mar del Plata just seemed too well...insane...that time of year, not to leave out insanely expensive. Montevideo seems more laid back. Is this true? It's certainly less expensive for a nice hotel.

What is a realistic price for a car and driver for a day of touring 6 people in Montevideo and surrounds?

How do you easily flow between AR pesos and Uruguay $? How is imigration going in and out of the country? Do we have to pay and exit tax to go in and out? Is 5 nights at the beginning and 2 nights and an extra long day in BA enough?

Sorry to not want to go north this trip Flintstone. I sort of feel guilty, Flinstone is so friendly and all. Bariloche just seemed to be too expensive to travel too, but again Soulskier is so nice too!

Thanks again in advance. XOXO
