I just was checking out the web page for Aerolineas Argentinas and they have two different coupon passes that they offer. The So American Pass and the Mercoser pass. I gather that the pass price is contingent on the amount of miles that you want to travel.
My husband and I will be in Argentina for three weeks in March and early April. Our son is marrying a woman from Cordoba. We would like to see lots of Argentina but the country is so big I thought that these passes might be the answer. Do you have any information on them? I am also having a hard time finding out the distance between stops to add up the miles I might cover. What will the weather be in March/April in the Andes and Tierra Del Fuego? Too cold to enjoy the scenery?
Sorry for all the questions thanks for all the help we can get. Actually this is probably only the beginning of the questions.

Weather should be fine with the caveat that you will be visiting the southernmost city in the planet To check historic data as well as current conditions you can visit this page.
I checked the one for AA and understood things differently. I think the So pass requires 'countries' as opposed to argentine cities destinations. Same for Mercosur. You may want to check with their staff but I think what you want is the old 'visit Argentina' pass which now seems to be an improved version where you can arrange a do-it-yourself itinerary at preferential prices. It appears there are no mileage limitations and the pricing for each leg is already set.
This is what I would do. Pick up those destinations you are interested in. Prices on this chart are one ways, so all you need to do is add them up and oila! So if you arrive in Buenos Aires with AA and want to fly to Cordoba, the cost will be usd $99 (1 way). If you arrive in Buenos Aires using another airline, the cost will be usd $152. You can then go on *building* your trip...
Study this chart carefully as you may need to connect through Baires depending on your departure city. If you are in Cordoba and wish to visit Bariloche, the chart indicates there will be a connection in BA (no direct flights).

Thanks Roberto, I think you are right - I read 2 countries up to 10 stops. But when I called AA they said that it was much cheaper to go using their chart. That is not what I understood at all, so I guess I burned too many midnight candles trying to figure it all out. Or I was just being blonde.

Blonde is good in Argentina, don't worry. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
