We will be in Argentina Oct 31- Nov 14.
We want 9 days of travel and 4 days of beach. Would really appreciate suggestions--

We were thinking
3 days Buenos Aires
3 days Mendoza
3 days Patagonia- can't decide between Bariloche or Calafate
*My husband has seen Iguazu already...
4 days Uruguay Punta del Este for beach

Also, what do you recommend to travel between BA-Mendoza
Mendoze-Patagonia
Patagonia- Urug
Uruguay- BA?

THANKS!

Choosing between Bariloche and Calafate, I think I would choose Calafate:

That's a choice between two beautiful scenes:

TripAdvisor always has great climate information:

Looks like yes, November will be a little cooler.

Try perusing the blogs for some other beach ideas: http://www.travelpod.com/s/uruguay+beach?st=user

Sorry chaps, November in Argentina/Uruguay is equivalent to June in the northern hemisphere, a touch early for a beach holiday, though perfect for the rest of the country. Punta del Este is great in season, which starts in December, but out of season it's as dead as a Dodo.

Personally I would spend the four days alloted to Uruguay in Patagonia, and do both Calafate and Bariloche, squeezing in Valdez Peninsula if at all possible.

Here's a two week itinerary I suggested to someone a few months ago:
Buenos Aires BUE (of course), Mendoza MDZ, Bariloche BRC, El Calafate FTE (Perito Moreno Glaciar) and Trelaw REL (Valdes Peninsula).

Day
1 Arrive BUE overnight flight
2 BUE
3 BUE
4 BUE
5 BUE-MDZ
6 MDZ
7 MDZ-BUE-BRC
8 BRC
9 BRC-EFE
10 EFE (visit glacier)
11 EFE-REL
12 REL (visit Valdes Peninsula)
13 REL-BUE

The Argentine tourism website is a bit complicated, but very complete:


The Argentine Airlines site will give you a good idea of routes and prices:

By the way, we took a supremely comfortable overnight bus from BUE to MDZ with full length beds, dinner and breakfast for just US$ 23.00 (in 2005).

Please look this over and keep in touch if you need more advice.
Cheers
Martin
