  • A good walk is to go to the Cerro de La Gloria. A place for walking, if you have breath, or auto to enjoy the view of the city of Mendoza seen from above. The way to the peak is cool. There are parks on the way. It is near the Center. And can be done the tour by tour buses that leave from Plaza Independencia. 8

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
