To those who are curious about Buenos Aires, I would like to recomend the following article published yesterday at the New York Times Going to Buenos Aires, Why go now.

Some of the reasons:

Argentina's capital has recovered a lot of its swagger and fun.
...The economy is booming
... And yet it is still shockingly inexpensive, with first-rate meals rarely costing more than 78 pesos a person, or $25 at 3.14 Argentine pesos to $1.


The Buenos Aires Conference is a good excuse... I invite you to come and visit us!


Regards

Iguazu Apr 3, 2006

Hi Clarissa !

Do you have some good tips to visit Iguazu falls at a reasonable price ?

Domestic fligts in Argentina sounds awfully expensive (the best quote I have is 700 USD/person) quite the same airfare for a flight between Madrid and Baires.

Tks in advance.

Thierry (trying to budget his asitance to "The " conference)

Upss! Apr 3, 2006

As far as I know, foreigners have to pay different air travel fees (more expensive, off course). I'm very sorry to inform you that.

Nevertheless, I'll make a couple of phone calls and ask tomorrow at the YMCA'S turism agency (my kids do sports there), in order to give you a more informed reply. Will you wait until tomorrow afternoon?

I think It will be nice to organize a group visit to Iguazu falls (or the Glaciers).


Regards

Clarisa

Extra information Apr 4, 2006

Thierry

As I promised you, today I asked at YMCA tourism about the fares to Iguazu falls, and I was told that a three days tour, air travel + 4 stars hotel (some meals included) costed TODAY about US$ 350 for foreign tourists. But he wasn't able to inform me which was going to be the cost in August ("too early", he said). After Easter they will have a more precise offer.

Besides, I was told at the YMCA thay they have a special section that deals with groups, and that they can arrange a group tour to Cataratas or the Glaciers if 10 or more people were interested (and at a cheaper cost!).

If somebody is interested, I offer to contat that person to organize a nice tour. I go to that place -for personal reasons - twice a week.

Sorry, I had no time for extra phone calls.



Regards

Clarisa
