This is a living document, so we can add, remove, and edit it as much as necessary until you are fully satisfied. 

Summary

Based on our last conversation, I have updated the itinerary.  I am going to in more detail  my number . one recommendation, and at the end I would tell . you the other options in a more simplified way:

 

OPTION ONE -Based on wanting to stay north and not travel as much, I am suggesting this be your plan:

 

  • 16 Nights in Argentina (Only Mendoza and Punta del Este) 

    • 3 nights in Buenos Aires (BA) - Private apartment. ​

      • Central private apartment, modern, trendy.  ​

    • 4 nights in Mendoza - 4 star country guesthouse

      • Lovely Hacienda hotel is charming town, near wineries​

    • 3 nights in Buenos Aires - Private apartment. ​

      • Central private apartment, modern, trendy. 

    • 6 nights in  Punta Del Este - Gay hotel 

      • Cute and Fun hotel near the gay beach. This is where gay Argentinians escape to during the summer​

      • Locals do leave the city for long periods of time during the summer, and Punta del Este is one of the destinations they prefer. It is the closest beach town for Buenos Aires

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

    • BA -  Mendoza (1.5 hr - direct)

    • Mendoza -  BA (1.5 hr - direct)

    • BA - Punta del Este (55 min - direct) 

    • Punta del Este - BA (55min - direct) -  Early flight, same day as your return flight home

  • Airport Transportation

    • Round trip shuttle in all destinations

  • Breakfast  

    • If accommodation permits.

    • Quality and type of breakfast is dependent of hotel. 

    • Buenos hotel charges extra for this. I am including cost in estimate, but could remove if not desired. 

  • Activities/Experiences 

    • Buenos Aires

      • *Gay night out experience - Private. Led by our own social butterfly. Lovely Brian will share with you traditions and tips, some of his favorite bars,  and dinner and show at one of the funnest places in BA.  Dinner and some drinks included. This can also be in a group if desired. 

      • *History/Culture Walking Tour - Private guided walk of Telmo, The beautiful old town area of Buenos Aires  ​

      • *City Tour -  Zona Norte . - Private guided walk of another part of the city. One of the most beautiful . and with more landmarks, Recoleta. Included tour of the Recoleta cemetery (Evita)​

      • *Street Art and Urban Experience - Explore another area of the city with an arty mindset.  Lunch, drinks, and snacks included. 

      • I can recommend and plan other activities, if you have something particular in mind.  For instance:

        • Bike tour of the Natural reserve within the city

        • Cooking class

        • Navigate in El Tigre (Delta of Parana River) - This is another great experience. It takes all day and can be private or in group.  Cruise the canals while admiring the views of the area, and sipping drinks as part of experience.  

        • List of recommendations for things to do and places to visit during your visit will be included on the final plan. 

    • Mendoza

      • Wine Experience - Private guided experience visiting wineries and getting to  know one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world.  Transportation, lunch, and tastings included.

      • Hike - Guided private hike along side the beautiful Andes. Lakes, Mountains, and views for days! don't forget your camera this day.  

        • Note:I recommend not many scheduled activities here, and enjoy some free time exploring the town, near by wineries, and the local night life.  Play it by ear.

        • Never the less I can recommend and include more activities if you prefer having things planned in advance.  

    • Punta Del Este​

      • I am not including activities here. I recommend enjoying the beach, meeting people, going out for dinner,  drinks, and shopping, etc. This is a place to relax and enjoy the sun while making friends. Punta del Este is famous and glamorous too.

        • You can work with your hotel extra activities ​

  • Full concierge services -  Before and throughout the trip (reservations, suggestions, etc)

    • Additional Activities - Help with additional activities you might be interested in while in any of the destinations.

    • Nights out/shows - Plan nights out, provide suggestions for bars and local night life, and more as requested. I will add names of gay  and gay friendly bars and clubs to the final plan. 

    • Lunch/Dinners -  Suggestions and reservations to some of the best restaurants in town, as desired.

      • If  you . opt for the option of staying the night,  you would arrive in the evening ​and be taken to the hotel, and wake up the next morning for breakfast and then the park.
