If you’re seeking a vacation to breathe fresh air, view gorgeous scenery and forget your worries, Mendoza will not disappoint. Whether you’re a wine sommelier or just enjoy a nice glass of Malbec every now and then, Mendoza is the place to go. It’s the Napa Valley of South America. The sophisticated yet laid back pace of this city with post-card views of the snow-capped Andes will have you feeling more than relaxed.
See and experience the rustic and simple lifestyle of the Argentinian cowboys who have cared for the land and the cattle for centuries. You’ll find yourself in awe at the staggering beauty of the highest peaks of all the Andes. Sipping premier vino tinto in the crisp mountain air, you’ll never want to leave.
The region is one of the best and most famous wine-growing areas in the world, making it one of the best Argentina vacations. Spend your day touring the vineyards, learning how the wine is made, and tasting as many labels as you can handle. You’ll leave an expert… and maybe a little tipsy. Rent a bike and cruise around freely exploring the different bodegas.
Listed at prices much more affordable than other parts of the world, you won’t be able to resist buying a bottle or two of your favorites. Take a bag with you to carry it all back! Mendoza boasts an impressive selection of wineries, each ranging in size and caliber, but all are remarkable. With a total of around 600 wineries, why not stay in Mendoza awhile? You’ll have plenty to try. Cheers to that!
Before the sun goes down, head out into nature to spend the evening with some traditional gauchos. Watch the sun set over the Andes as you ride horseback through dusty landscape trails like a gaucho would. An authentic Argentinian cowboy will lead you and your horse through the open outdoors at the base of the Andes and then to a traditional asado dinner. Of all the possible Argentina vacations, nowhere else can you find an experience like this.
While the parilla sizzles with some of the world’s best beef, gather together with your friends and family and pass around a mate to enjoy each other’s company. When the meat is ready, pair a Mendoza Malbec with your steak and you’ll be in total bliss. Don’t forget to applaud to the asadores to thank the gauchos for sharing with you not only a spectacular meal, but a piece of their culture as well. How lucky are they to call the incredible mountainous paradise of Mendoza home?
