Ron, there are many choices.

Cordoba, Mendoza and Buenos Aires all have good schools and lots of outdoors (Mendoza has snow). BA has many malls that are just 15 minutes away from anywhere in the city (Patio Bullrich in Recoleta, Alto Palermo and Carrefour in Palermo, Abasto in Palermo viejo, Galeria Pacifico in downtown, etc.).

I am confused if this is long term stay or a vacation visit... If long term, I'd would choose Buenos Aires as your beach head and then explore other destinations at your own pace. You may be able to rent space that is already connected to internet. This is your best bet as getting connected may take some time. Cell phone you can get the same day you arrive with prepaid cards in offices in downtown.

However, there are some services that will get you all of this in one package. For example, a member here rents apartments in Recoleta with internet and cell phone included in the deal. You also have the choice of plenty of 'locutorios' or cybercafes where you pay for broadband access to internet but if your business requires privacy this may not work.

Does your son speak any spanish? If not, your school choices may be limited to a few.
