Argentina with ursula hosting

Hello Walter, 

I present to you the first version of the plan for your trip to Argentina with Ursula Hosting.  This is a summary of activities and services we can provide, including hotels we can arrange for you. 

I have created this first draft based on your input, and I will continue to edit it and build it with your feedback. As we start to confirm things,  I will start to include details, links, and more information and photos. 

Please take a look and let me know what you think. 

Proposed Plan:

 

  • 14 Nights in Argentina (Not including cruise time)

    • 4 nights in Iguazu, Jan 18 - Jan 22

      • We looked at the Belmont Hotel rates, and assuming the room cost is around $3,000, we would like to offer an option located in the Argentina side that could give more for about the same or less

      • Hotel Loi Suites, ,is a 5-Star hotel built to embrace its surroundings.  We could get you one of the largest suites, with all the amenities and services of a hotel of its rating.   

      • Elegant, lush style. Located only 15 min away from the waterfalls. This hotel is immersed in the subtropical jungle of Iryapú.

      • We can also offer the 5-Star Grand Melia hotel, which which also has waterfall views rom the rooms. This option would be about an additional $1,000 to the final total. Room would be smaller, but it is also a grand option.   ​

    • 5 nights in Mendoza - Jan 22 - Jan 27

      • Jan 22 - 25 - Mendoza City

        • Huentala hotel is a good option. We can save some money with them, and other 4-star hotels in the city.  For now, we are using the online cost in Huentala for a double suite with the breakfast option included to estimate the total cost.  If interested in the package, we will compare options and adjust cost based on your decision.   

      • Jan 25 - 27 - Wine Country

        • I would recommend two nights in the wine country so you don't need to rush and can truly enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the area. 

        • Entre Cielos is one of the best and only a couple others could compare. For now, we are using the online cost of a Superior Double Room for 2 nights, with the breakfast included to estimate the total cost.  If interested in the package, we will compare options and adjust cost based on your decision and number of nights.

        • We could also do 4 stars guest houses in the wine country with beautiful facilities and amenities for half the price if you would like to reduce cost more.

    • 5 nights in Buenos Aires (BA) : Jan 27 - Jan 28, and Feb 11 - Feb 15

      • ​​ ​Intercontinental: I recommend returning the 27th from Mendoza and spending one night in BA before the cruise.  Flying the same day seems a bitt risky.  Many factors can affect the flight.  

  • Flights - All with Aerolineas Argentinas - Economy Plus - One Checked bag included. 

    • BA - Iguazu  (1.75 hr - direct)

    • Iguazu - Mendoza ( 4hr - One Stop in BA)
