Another delayed flight.. this time, 2 hours… And we were already quite early for the flight… Again, we have become quite good at wasting time, so not so much of a problem, apart from the fact that I had emailed the hotel to tell them when we would get in…
On the other end, we manage to successfully get money out at the …
... wanted us to pay for the tour which included some tastings. But we still had our kitty left and wanted to taste more than a 1cm of wine each so we managed to strike a deal, we got the tour for free but would rather buy 3 or 4 bottles of wine instead of tasting. They agreed and off we went. The tour itself was informative and our guide really new his stuff. At the end we went to the tasting room to buy and drink some wine. Our guide decided that the best ...
Another early start at our hospitals was followed by an equally early siesta! It was a cloudy day in Mendoza yesterday and after an afternoon walk, all of us at the work the world house organised to go horseback riding with the gauchos (cowboys!) We arrived at the ranch where Diego, our lead gaucho, gave us a short intro of how ...
... bath! After a bit he and Willie went to have their massages and I went for a sauna before joining mum on a sun lounger where she was painting. The massage later was fantastic and I could feel my skin absorbing all the oil as it was dry from the mud pack, unfortunately it didn't last long enough but as there was still all the pools to lounge around in I couldn't really complain. Dad had 'relaxed' after his massage by going for a hike with Willie but ...
... sounded good. Well worth the 5 bucks for a few hours of entertainment.
Joel is still not feeling well, so we came back to the hotel, a supper of cheese and crackers, and some of the chocolates I had gone back to pick up. It's not like we've been starving this trip, it was nice to have a light day. It's hard to believe tomorrow is our last full day here - it's been a wonderful stay in this smaller city - who knows what tomorrow will bring!

TravelPod Member ReviewsParador del Angel Chacras de Coria
This family run hotel is an absolute stunner. The grounds have beautifully designed luscious gardens with the main garden comprising a nice clean pool with tiled lounge area.
Our room, No. 3, was well sized and had a very lovely bathroom.
The family own several reasonably placid dogs, two mature cats and two kitten under a year old, all of whom roam around the premises available for much love and attention by all guests who appreciate animals.
The breakfast was a combination of the typically South American sweet style spread and the more savoury Continental style breakfast.
Teas, coffees and cold mineral water are all available free of charge throughout the entire day and the WiFi is reliable with a good signal.
When returning to Chacras de Coria (a suburb within the Mendoza province about 45 mins South of Mendoza airport, 120 pesos via taxi), we'll definitely return here to stay!
Discounts are offered on room rates if paying in cash.
