      Definitely our favorite place we had stayed after a month in South America. Online reviews complained about its location. We didn't think the walk was bad. The place's charm and Adriana's hospitality easily outweigh any concerns about the location anyways. Super comfortable room and legitimately hot shower at all times. Adriana's homemade treats were the star of the show though. I highly recommend staying here.

      ... It was a first for Merlin and Matias! The cake had come from “Chaura” the best baker in Chalten – a chocolate sponge with the bottom layer soaked in liqueur. The cake had been “glued to the lid” with “dulce de leche” – local caramel.

      Dinner was a delicious traditional Argentinean lentil stew. Once again Merlin surprised us by supplying 2 bottles of wine.

Highlights of the museum included a 3d movie about glaciers and an ice bar. Dinner was at a fancy parilla - the tables had call bells for the waiters and everything. Afterwards, we continued our nightly ritual of finding a heladería for some delicious ice cream. Tomorrow we head to the Perito Moreno ...

      ... behind him while the mate stood guard outside. Quite a funny sight, but not nearly as funny as watching them waddle towards the water, hopping down small steps and then frolicking in the water jumping out and splashing around. I could have watched them all day but we had only an hour to spend with them before we headed over to the smaller island. We didn’t get off the boat this time but we observed the sea lions, sea elephants and sea cows. I have seen plenty of ...

      ... settled in The Ranch owners house to have lunch. Argentina is famous for its tremendous steaks, so without a doubt that it was he served us. Those steaks were certainly outstandingly delicious! The 20-ounce steaks were slightly… large? Especially because normally we order three main courses and that is plenty. We would have had enough with two steaks that size but instead we were served four ...
