The itinerary and price here is just a sample. Contact the provider for detailed pricing, minimum group size, and scheduling information. For most providers, the larger the group you are traveling with, the lower the per-person cost will be.

Areas visited include Palermo, the Recoleta, the Plaza de Mayo, the Teatro Colon, San Telmo, and La Boca. You will have the end of the day free to explore on your own and eat out at one of the city’s restaurants.

Day 3 Free Day in Buenos Aires
Today you have a free day in Buenos Aires to explore some more of the city on your own. We can also arrange day excursions to nearby sites, such as the town of Colonia, Uruguay (a well preserved 17th century Portuguese colonial town that is a UNESCO World Heritage site), or up to Tigre and the Delta (there are also biking excursions up to Tigre). Another option you might consider is an excursion (day or overnight) to one of the "estancias" in the area of San Antonio de Areco, about 1.5 hours from Buenos Aires. This is an area that has preserved gaucho traditions more than any other in Argentina and the estancias provide a more in depth experience in this area of Argentine culture and history.

The trails are well marked and can be accessed from your hotel which is located inside the national park itself. If you would prefer to have a guide accompany you, we can also arrange that for you.

In the afternoon you return to Mendoza by way of Villavicencio, getting some great views of the surrounding landscape and also having the opportunity to see some rare wildlife, such as guanacos (wild cousing of the llama), rhea (ostrich like birds), and Andean condors.
