Argentina 2013: A Wonderful Hunt and Fantastic Vacation: Some general thoughts on Argentina 2.

by david on October 14, 2013

We chose middle-of-the-road accommodations, as we only were there to change clothes and sleep.  Every place we stayed was comfortable, secure, and very reasonably priced.  They were all centrally located and we were able to walk to shopping and dining.

Argentina is full of wonderful things to see and it was impossible for us to see everything in one trip.  We chose to see Buenos Aries, Iguazú Falls, Mendoza, and El Calafate and they took us from one end of the country to the other.  My suggestion is to do your research, find out what you want to see and let your travel agent work up a trip for you.  I heartily recommend Sylvia Zapiola and Patagonia-Argentina.com for your trip.  Her treatment of us was first class, and I can’t say enough good things about her.

Tipping, as we know, it is not part of the Argentinean culture.  They neither expect nor ask for tips, as they consider serving you just part of their job.  That being said, if you want to leave a little tip for great services (we almost always got great service), then leave a tip.  It will be appreciated and possibly make you a great friend for future trips to that establishment.

I cannot say enough about the hunting in Argentina.  While I did not big game hunt, there is more than ample opportunity.  I did thoroughly enjoy the wing shooting, however.  It was like nothing I ever experienced before.  I am already making plans to go back.  There are more birds than you could ever shoot and the service at South American Adventure Safaris is phenomenal.  If this is something you are interested in experiencing for yourself, do a little research and start planning your trip and have a grand adventure.
