Travelling from Buenos Aires to Santiago via Rosario, Santa Fe, Cordoba, San Luis and Mendoza, any tips or suggestions for along the way?
Myself and 2 others are travelling from Buenos Aires to Santiago via Rosario, Santa Fe, Cordoba, San Luis and Mendoza. I am trying to build up a decent itinarary and would love to hear any suggestions or advice from anyone who has travelled between these places at all? If there is anything along the way you could recommend? Thanks 😊
We have not done the exact route you are planning but have been to some of the cities you are mentioning and greatly enjoyed it!
Look into our blog entries about Argentina to get ideas...
When you go to Córdoba, make sure to visit the small little towns outside of the city., i.e., Rio Ceballos, Villa General Belgrano, etc.
When in San Luis, visit Portero de los Funes.
I would try and visit San Juan which is really close to mendoza and one of Argentina's most magnificent provincies, in my humble opinion.

I agree with Bill Nye, try and get to San Juan, it is pretty easy to get to and I think you will find it worth it. When you are in Buenos Aires, one of my favorite cities in the world, try and see as much as you can in your time there. I think you will find that you will never be bored there. The night life there is crazy, and is definitely part of experiencing Buenos Aires, so even if you don't like to go out that much, make sure you get at least one night out. However note that they don't leave to go out until around 1 in the morning and then go home very late, so be prepared to sleep most of the next day if you aren't used to this kind of partying!
To get there, you have to cross the Mediterranean and enter a new continent: Africa. A country whose name sounded the depths of dreams for a long time and know the stories of mountains covered in a fine dust of the desert, lying on a wool carpet, drinking strong tea bitter and sugar. The colors are assimilated naturally, those spices, the henna, those mosaics of the palace, the black kohl forever in the eyes of Berber women. And language sung, made languid syllables, listening for hours without understanding ... , Is Morocco ...
