Definitely BsAs. I've spent a little time in both traveling and as a city Buenos Aires has a lot more to offer. Santiago is a little closer to the outdoors, but you can get there from either. Mendoza is a LONG bus ride from BsAs but doable. You'd be flying to Patagonia from either most likely.

I could see Santiago if you are big in to skiing and going in the winter. Otherwise no question.

I went to Buenos Aires and found:

 

1) it's not as cheap as I thought it would be (I live in NYC and BA is not much cheaper at all. I'm sure board is cheaper though).

2) the city is very big and public transportation isn't very good.

3) the coffee is terrible. It's very burnt and watery.

 

At least the weather was nice.

Silly tourist, you did it all wrong.

I don't doubt it. I went for a school trip and therefore my focus was really on drinking with classmates. I did have one good steak dinner at a place near the water though.
