Cataratas is also known as Iguazu falls. The name of the park that is Iguazu just outside of Ponte de Iguazu. This place is gorgeous. It has one of the best sites and walks of Iguazu. If you plan on doing the Brazilian side of iguazu as well I recommend doing it first then the Argentinian side. The boat ride is also nice as it gets you some great photos and a bit of a wet adventure.
The Brazilian side of Iguazu.There arent as many fanastic views of the Falls from the Brazilian side, but there is a lot more activities here. It kind of turns a natural park into a an amusement park, so to speak. There is bungie jumping into the river and other fun things to do. The main attraction, The Devils Mouth. The view is gorgeous here.
Lombok is a great place to get away from the crowd of Bali. It offers a lot to see and some gorgeous beaches. Most tourists just skip the sites here to go straight to the Gili Islands, but there is a lot of nature to the north and amazing beaches for surfing to the south. Lombok should be more than just a place to pass through when moving to Gili Islands.
Just an average hostel. A lot of tourists here and gorgeous main common area. Even more amazing, is their pool. The pool is large and the center piece of the whole hostel. It is very inviting.
The dorms are pretty dorm like. The stereo typical dorms you can think of hostels. The kitchen is large. The internet usage is kind of on old technology and the free wifi goes off after 10pm.
The place is just average, but if you love a great swimming pool then this is the place for you.
Walked down the street while waiting for our bus to Rosario and came across the place as it didn't offer only meat options. It is large, despite the outer exterior not being so inviting. The outer look makes it look like it is a not cared for.
I was actually kind of right. The seat I sat it was kind of broken and plate was kind of dirty. We were placed with silverware as well. I think we happened to choose the worse table is all.
The food was just... meh. It wasn't good. It wasn't bad. It just kind of was something you eat just to fill your stomach.
A mexican restaurant just outside of San Telmo area of Buenos Aires. It is not bad, just kind of expensive for it's quality.
Although it is mexican style cuisine, it definitely has more of Argentinian style of cooking and feel to it.
I would only recommend this place to some one who craves mexican food while in San Telmo.
This place is just okay. It is not great and it isn't bad, especially if you are into the arts. The private room was kind of beat up for being a private room.
The place has an upstairs bar, which serves pizza and, you guessed it, drinks. It is the main gathering place other than the small area where the television is. The night we were there they were showing a documentary which was rather fascinating.
The breakfast is bread bread and more breads. They speak both english and spanish there.
This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It is really clean and very quaint. The best part is it's location. It is right in the middle of Central Buenos Aires near all the excitement and things to do.
The rooms here are very spacious, as it is set in an old apartment/home that has been renovated to fit a private room hostel. The customer service is amazing. Hubert was very kind slow and explained a lot to us, and smiled the whole time.
The breakfast every morning was good and offered more variety than most hostels, and actually offered fruits.
The only reason I am not giving this place a 5 star is that the over abundance of advertising and pushing of other services. I understand the need for it and it is great for those who do not know what to do yet in Buenos Aires, but it just is not my cup of tea.
I would recommend this place for nearly anyone. It isn't a place to be pampered, but it is definitely top tier when it comes to a hostel. I would place more like a midrange hotel.
A place where the tour bus lands. My travel mate and I decided to take a walk here as we both are artists and have a love for design. This was to be an opportunity to see something interesting for us. As we got there a tour bus pulled up and everyone poured out with their cameras. It put me in an awkward moment.
Now the flower is amazing. It is an engineering feat too. It opens during the day and closes at night. If we didn't have to catch a plane we would have stuck around to see what it looks like at night.
I would recommend this only to people who like shiny works of art and don't mind being surrounded by tourists.
A wonder ful small quaint place to eat in the heart of Palermo. It is not at all near the tourist attractions but at the same time not a far walk from them. It is tucked away in the residential areas of Palermo. We kind of wandered there and noticed a lot of locals eating there, so we assumed it was good. And we were right. The service was good (but not great) and the servers were fast. We had a pasta dish which was nice and rich and an amazing salad that was well flavored. I would recommend someone who wants a small little quaint place away from the tourist scene eat here.
Nice place to just walk around and get some amazing photos. This area of Palermo is not as nice as the rest of Palermo but it is still safe.
San Telmo is an area of Buenos Aires that everyone says to see. To me it was just an average neighborhood. It has old street feel and some older buildings. The big drawback is it that is destroyed by all the graffiti around.
The area DOES have a great sense of feel and has a few good places to eat around the area, but also expect the prices to be a bit higher as well.
Over all, the places is perfect if you want to get some good photographic experiences and explore some of the tourist spots in Buenos Aires. Not so great who like a clean city, nature or budgetting.
This place street is a photographer's heaven. I was having a field day with all the perfect lighting and amazing stone textures. The view of the river behind makes it a prime spot to get all kinds of photographs. This will make anyone with a camera look like an experienced photographer.
This is the main attraction of Colonia Del Sacramento, and it is one of the most beautiful places architectural-scapes I have been to. It is truely gorgeous to just walk around and just enjoy the view. Feel free to also take part of the artisan foods in the area as well.
There is a new El Derado International Airport and flew in and out 3 days after it opened (and 2 weeks before flew out the old one). The new airport is very spacious and easy to get around. It is one of the easier international airports to get through thanks to it's open space. From the outside it does not look too bad, but just average looking. A much improvement to the old airport. Beware, taxi prices seemed to have doubled since the inception.
Tigre is a nice day trip from Buenos Aires. It is a few pesos train ride that can be taken from the Retiro rail station. The ride takes about an hour. When arriving head to the McDonalds, because right behind it is the tourism office to get ideas of what to do. There are plenty of boat rides along the delta bank that are not too expensive. The views here are nice, just a bit slow in TIgre, that is why it is a perfect as a day trip.
