Where to stay in Argentina

The trip to Argentina deserves a good hotel for rest and energy replenishment. But depending on what time of year you plan to travel and which city your destination is, this can become difficult to find.

In Buenos Aires, for example, you have to be careful. After all, some neighborhoods can be more dangerous, like Caminito. Others, however, like Recoleta and Palermo, are well recommended and known for their excellent infrastructure.

The city of Mendoza, on the other hand, is difficult to choose due to the more than 130 wineries in the region, with beautiful landscapes and cozy rooms for couples or families.

While San Carlos de Bariloche, despite being a small town in Patagonia Argentina, has a large hotel chain that suits solo travelers, groups of friends, couples in love or even family vacations.

And finally, trips to Ushuaia need to be planned in advance, as the high season months in winter and summer tend to fill hotels in the city.
