Hi Folks,

this is a very nice forum and I already learnt a lot just reading. Now I hope to participate in your experiences...

After a few days BA we want to start from BA via Santa Fé, Santiago and Cafayate to Salta and Jujuy, then cross the country over via Corrientes (how´s the road to there, does anyone know?) to Iguazu and the Misiones area and then head down to Concordia and into Uruguay (some days Montevideo and Punta del Este). Then back to BA (ferry?).

All these more or less 5300 km will be done with a rented car and - now that´s the point - we have only 19 days for the tour. I don´t mind driving for long hours or in heavy traffic (drove in Cairo and Naples etc.), but I´m not sure about the road conditions. Can it be done and does it make sense or is it just a stupid idea and we should cancel some of the destinations?

Thanks a lot,

Thomsch

Dear Thomas,

We have had customers who did more or less the same trip, all in about 21 days. So if you tighten up the schedule a little bit more, I definitively think this is possible.
The road conditions are okay, it is all paved roads you will take. Little highway, many two lane roads. I always calculate with an average of 80-90 km per hour here in Argentina.

If you want more detailed information please send me a private message.

Good luck and have fun!

Dear Jan,

thank you for your advice. 80-90 km/h sounds good.

All the best,

Thomsch
