  • The first time you visit it was in year 2012 and I loved. This year I went back and gratamante found that BC now there are spectrum 6 handicrafts and even a kind of food truck where they sell juice. Embellish these things but the entire landscape. For the first time although I liked was abandoned income.

  • I loved meeting the Cerro de la Gloria! Stay on top of a mountain, the beautiful monument. During the day the sun burns and the night is cold, has a large variation in temperature, it looks like the desert. Worth knowing!

  • Beautiful place, there is a mini fair to buy souvenirs and niche products. You must be careful with the issue of the parking lot because come micros and chaos occur because there is no place. Very steep and closed curves to get to the top and at the time also lower because it goes by another roller.

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.
