    I'm doing Buenos aires, patagonia (el calafate), igazu falls, and maybe mendoza if i can fit it into the budget/schedule and not have things be too packed. Might take a day trip into Montevideo (uruguay) as well.

    Haven't picked hotels yet. I have a short list of boutique hotels in BA and el calafate (debating eolo vs estancia cristina). Curious if anyone has specific recs.

    I read or heard somewhere that thanks to export controls Argentina is moving away from grass fed beef to grain as ranchers try to recoup some profit by being forced to limit overseas sales. Thus leading to a loss of the classic superious Argentine beef taste. Never been so wouldn't know

    It's true, Argentinian beef is increasingly mass produced from US style feedlots nowadays. Uruguay is now supposedly the spot for grass fed beef.
