Like the altitude, the types of accommodations available here vary widely, so tourist offices can recommend all kinds of lodgings. As you’d expect, Mendoza City has the largest selection, with options including basic hostels, practical "apart-hotels" (furnished units with kitchen facilities), stylish boutique hotels, plus a healthy handful of luxury properties. In the countryside, you'll find
everything from traditional estancias (ranches) that offer horseback riding and other outdoorsy activities to rustic cabañas (cabins), homey residenciales (bed-and-breakfasts), and modern ski lodges—all of which are generally well maintained and well priced. Vacationing hedonists can also choose between several posh resorts and posadas (country inns), where the on-site amenities include top-notch restaurants, extensive wine cellars, and soothing spas.
