No, we had a private guide pick us up in Salta, from there we spent 2 nights in Colome (amazing place), 1 night in Tafi del Val, then 2 nights in Villa Union, so we took 6 days to drive from Salta-Mendoza. There are some really interesting parks in between. We also stopped in Cachi and Cafayete for lunch along the way. We did not want to fly back to BA, so thought this was a more interesting way to do this trip. Even though you do spend a lot of time in the car and some of the scenery is a little boring, most of it was amazing as we basically followed Ruta 40 along the Andes.

for people who are on a budget, a good way to economize is to bus the way from Salta to Mendoza. it takes the whole night. It costs about 160 $argentinos and they serve dinner on board. The seats only 6 on the lower deck and they are terribly confortable. In this case you avoid coming to buenos aires and flying to Mendoza from BA which would cost around u$s 200 and take longer.

as far as i remember the da vinci appartments are less expensive than a good hotel in that area. But remember, they can be rented with a minimum of 7 days.

Hi, Fran & Jim:

I'm Argentine and have spent most of my life in BA. Regarding how safe is the city, it varies greatly from one neighborhood to the next. I'd suggest: 1)Be careful with the kind of jewelry/watches you wear (try to avoid anything too ostentacious); 2) Whenever possible, make use of what we call "radio-taxis", you call them and request them to come pick you up, rather than stop them in the street; 3) Don't walk around late at night if you can help it.
Let me know if you have another question.
Marianne

owlwoman, no, I have not been to any GTG's

I like the sites that drdawggy posted and I found another source of good information regarding BA and staying there or living there...some of you might already know about it
