We spent a long weekend in the Mendoza area, with most of our time relaxing south of Mendoza (which I will hopefully cover in another post), but spent our first day hiking around Aconcagua. Aconcagua is the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas and means "Stone Sentinal" in Quechua. Despite its height (almost 23,000 feet) and being the tallest …
With only one airline flying into Argentina and therefore creating near extortionate airfares, we are left to seek alternative transport to enter the country. The trains are few and unreliable and the car rental is difficult and expensive so we end up leaving Chile on a bus. Not your average bus mind you, the impressive looking double decker is equipped with free WiFi, little TV's in the backs of the seats and even waitresses onboard to fulfil all your ...
The trip down to Mendoza was long as usual! The food was once again ****, glad I bought some sandwiches with me. The bus left at 15.30 hrs from Salta and we did not arrive until 11.00 am in Mendoza, a little delayed.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSheraton Mendoza Hotel
Very cheap hotel (~1,000 pesos or 6,000 SPG points) that exceeded expectations for being so nice. They had a nice spa (so we were told) and a small casino that was nice only because it had such small minimums (25 pesos).
