Mendoza, Mendoza


At the foot of the Andes in the northwest of Argentina, Mendoza is probably most famous for wine and vineyards. Most people who’ve traveled there will tell you it’s got a chill vibe. It’s a great place to go for Carnaval and a nice place to bike.

With about 885,000 residents, Mendoza’s big enough to get lost in (not too lost if you look out for the mountains), but a world apart from Buenos Aires.
