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.

... the mini trek instead of the all-day trek, so our hour and a half jaunt across Perito Moreno ended a bit too quickly. It ended inside the glacier where the guides offered us whiskey or cider in a glass with glacial ice as a reward. It was a perfect way to ring in 2015.

At 6.30pm Matias arrived at the hotel and shortly after all the porters arrived. We shouted them a beer, thanked them profusely and gave them a well-deserved tip.

In relation to other glaciers in the world, Perito Moreno is considered one of the 'healthiest' glaciers on earth because instead of shrinking, like most others, it's actually growing. On average, the ...
... four men smoking cigarettes and playing cards. One of these men gave me ten pesos for each dollar, versus the much lower official rate of 7.8 pesos to the dollar. While there, the bar tender gave me the names and/or locations of five shops where SIM cards could be purchased, however after waiting until 6pm, none of these did open. We took advantage of the one grocery store that was not closed for siesta, even if our shopping took over an hour due largely to the fact that only ...
... Aires. Then you have three options to see the glacier: from the viewing platforms, as part of a small hike, or a longer hike across the ice called "Big Ice". You can drive yourself to the park if all you want to do is see the glacier from the viewing platforms. However, if you’ve travelled all the way there then you should absolutely pay to hike the glacier with a tour company. We used Hielo y Aventura, which I think is the only company ...
