Exploring Chile, Argentina, Ururguay in 16 days?

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

I'm starting to plan my first trip to South America and I'm in need of some help. I would love to have an entire month to travel, but alas I only have 16-17 days. I am fearful that I'm trying to fit in too much for 16 days.

Here's the info:
Who: late 20s/early 30s couple

What: explore city life, some biking/hiking, visit wineries, eat great food and relax on a beach for a couple of days.

When: last 2 weeks in November 2009

Where: Santiago, Central Coast winery, Valparaiso, Andes, Mendoza, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Jose Ignacio

Why: never been to South America and looking for great weather in November, interesting cultural experiences mixing outdoor adventures with great city life

How: fly into Santiago, bus/car ride over Andes to Mendoza, fly from Mendoza to Buenos Aires, ferry over to Uruguay/ferry back, and flight out of Buenos Aires

Here's a rough day to day itinerary:
flight/Santiago
Santiago
Santiago
central coast winery
Valparaiso
Valparaiso/Vina
Andes to Mendoza
Mendoza
Mendoza
Mendoza/flight to BA or Montevideo
Montevideo/ Jose Ignacio
Jose Ignacio
BA
BA
BA
BA/flight home

Adding in Montevideo/Jose Ignacio is kinda messing up my plans, but my BF really wants a couple of day relaxing on a warm beach thrown in. Would it be easier to do a beach outside of BA? Will it even be warm enough in late Nov to enjoy beach life?

Thanks in advance for any help.

-Rachel
