Punto Urbano is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. It is in a great area, it's very clean, it's open, and the staff is very helpful. The hostel had so many activities to offer (a lot of them free!). It has a great atmosphere for being social. I booked my tours with them as well.
That being said, it was VERY hot in the rooms. I was in the 8 person dorm and it didn't feel like any air was flowing. The street outside was also loud, but we had to keep the doors out to the patio for more air. I think the private rooms are a better deal.

After we leave the city the route starts to get very scenic, by ten o clock we are traveling through huge ravines alongside the Rio Blanco and surrounded by snow capped mountains ...

... to the town of Maipu, which is where all the vineyards are situated. From here, we hopped onto our 'one size fits all' bicycles and cycled between three vineyards. The first winery we visited was an organic one, where everything is 'au natural'. It was a quaint place and we had a short tour of how they make their wine, then the important part of sampling some! We had a sample of the red and white, before making our way to the second one. The next place was on a ...
