how to spend 10 days in Argentina

I was fortunate enough to have a year to spend exploring Argentina. However, for most people coming to visit this beautiful country, that simply isn’t possible. I’ve found 10 days is generally the sweet spot when it comes to planning a trip to any country. So, this itinerary will help you plan your Argentine adventure and see as much as you possibly can in your 10 days! (And I’ll also share some suggestions if you have more or less time!)… Read more »

When I was planning my trip around Argentina, it worked out that we would be spending a total of 4 days in Ushuaia (a.k.a. The Southern Most City in the World). Now, spending 4 days in Ushuaia is not necessarily what most people do when they plan their adventures around Argentina or Patagonia. I could not find a single article on a 4-day itinerary when I was trying to figure out my time there! I know it’s much more popular… Read more »

sailing the Beagle Channel

If you’re heading to Ushuaia, Argentina, spending at least a half day on the Beagle Channel is a must. There are many species of birds as well as sea lions to be seen and some outstanding views of Ushuaia. And there are many different companies offering boat tours of the Beagle Channel. However, there is only one who offers the option to take you out in a sailboat – Tres Marias Excursiones. Why choose a sailing tour? I chose this… Read more »

Hito XXIV Trail

When it comes to hiking in Tierra del Fuego National Park, you have quite the variety of experiences to choose from. For our trip to Ushuaia, Argentina, we only had enough time to do a day hike. So, for this post, I’ll only be talking about the different day hikes (but you can spend much more time/days hiking in Tierra del Fuego). And when it comes to day hikes, Hito XXIV is one of the less popular hikes. This is… Read more »

Hotel Grinnell

Hotel Grinnell is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel in downtown Grinnell, Iowa. This is by far the most unique hotel I’ve ever stayed in. That’s because it was once a junior high school, and instead of gutting the building, its owners, Steve Holtze and Angela Harrington, decided to embrace the building’s scholastic past. The rooms are converted from classrooms and every room comes with a chalkboard, lockers are turned to benches and the old scoreboard hangs in the lounge. You can… Read more »

Penguins Martillo Island

Awesomeness! That’s what you can expect when walking with the penguins on Martillo Island in Argentina. I mean they’re adorable, little penguins! Haha. In all seriousness, though, I wasn’t entirely sure myself what to expect when I booked this adventure. I knew I was going to be close enough to see penguins, but that was about the extent of it… and everyone said it was an absolute must if I was going to Ushuaia, Argentina. So, hopefully after reading this… Read more »

sunset

Today’s post I wanted to take a minute to update everyone on what exactly is going on over here at Have Clothes, Will Travel. We left Argentina over a month ago, but there hasn’t been any big moving announcements or hints as to what’s been happening since we left. I’ve been getting a few questions about this and figured I’d let you lovely readers know what’s going on since that announcement. If you’ve been following along for awhile, you’ll know… Read more »

Perito Moreno Glacier hiking

Yep, you read that right! You can actually hike Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina. And it is an absolute must-do if you’re considering a Patagonian adventure. This was hands down my favorite part of Patagonia (at least in Argentina… Chile is to be determined). There are a few key things you should know about Perito Moreno Glacier before you plan your visit, though. Check out all my tips, tricks and fun facts, below! 14 Things to Know Before You Hike… Read more »

I really wanted to see Mount Fitz Roy!

This will be my first travel post from Patagonia! I’m really excited to kick off this series as our Patagonian adventure has been one of my favorites to date! Our first day we arrived in El Calafate from Puerto Iguazu and woke up bright and early the next day to head to El Chaltén. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record in my blog posts, I have to say, if you have more time, by all means… Read more »

Iguazu Falls

As I mentioned in my previous travel post, Iguazu Falls are located on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Now, I would highly recommend going to both sides of Iguazu Falls, as they are two totally different experiences. However, I must say, we really loved the Argentine side! It was an incredible rush to see the sheer power of these falls at such a close proximity. And if you only have time for one, I would choose the Argentine side…. Read more »

Iguazu Falls

“Poor Niagara.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt Eleanor Roosevelt famously said that upon seeing Iguazu Falls. And it’s hard to not have that reaction when you see them in person! Iguazu Falls are made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, with the exact number depending on the season. It spans an area 2.7 kilometers wide, and it’s almost twice as tall and nearly three times wider than Niagara Falls. We had visited Iguazu Falls on our exit tour of Argentina, and… Read more »

The perfect Amazon Rainforest outfit!

My trip to the Amazon in Peru is one of the first trips of my life that I felt I had actually packed well enough for that I could pass on my packing tips to my readers. Seriously, this was the first trip. Haha. I almost always over-pack or forget a key wardrobe piece. The biggest key to me finally mastering packing for this trip was because I’ve finally acquired a decent amount of outdoor/hiking clothes. Our adventures almost always… Read more »

Growing up in a fishing village, the first question my friends and family asked about our trip to the Amazon was “how was the fishing?” Haha. So, here is how the fishing was! (And we were actually fishing on a tributary of the Amazon River – the Yarapa River – not the Amazon itself.) We also ate all the fish we caught…all but one, and you’ll see why in a video below. (We had hooked a giant stingray on accident!)… Read more »

sloth

*As I mentioned in my previous post, I still have a lot of photos and experiences to share from our treehouse adventure in Peru’s Amazon Rainforest! If you missed my previous Treehouse Lodge posts, click here.* Staying in an honest-to-goodness treehouse in the Amazon Rainforest was quite the adventure in and of itself, however, our days spent exploring were equally as exciting! On our second day, after we returned from a day of spotting wildlife in the rainforest, our guide… Read more »

tribal print cardigan - black skinnies - black booties

Cardigan (Similar here, here & here) | Booties (Similar) | Jeans | Scarf (Similar) | Earrings | Sunglasses c/o* Why hello! Long time no see! I’m finally back to blogging as usual, and thank you, again, to all of my lovely guest posters for picking up the slack while I was moving/traveling. And my travels did actually bring me to “the end of the world.” Ushuaia, Argentina is dubbed “Fin del Mundo” in Spanish, which means “End of the World”… Read more »

Affordable_Buenos_Aires_pinterest

Guest post by Rebecca Hoffmann Oh, Buenos Aires… This name which embeds mysterious elegant women in tango dresses with handsome men by their side, buildings with astonishing architecture, and the stories and rumors of the famous Evita Peron who grew from poverty to become Argentina’s First Lady. Yes, Buenos Aires… But wait, wait, when you start planning your trip to this gorgeous city, the dollars start falling out of your pockets! Buenos Aires is expensive. However, I’m here to help… Read more »

How to take your comfortable bedroom on the road

Guest Post by Sarah Cummings As someone who loves to travel, I’ve had to give up a lot of luxuries. I haven’t worn heels in a year. I haven’t applied make-up in just as long (gasp!) And all those homely comforts that used to help me sleep at night – like my cosy duvet, my oh-so-soft throw pillow and my calming tinted bedside lamp – are tucked away in storage, awaiting the day I’ll eventually return. Giving up these things… Read more »

Guest Post by Yolanda Ridley Do you have a travel bucket list? If yes, I can (almost) guarantee that Africa or Safari appears there. Am I right?! Africa is a massive continent so you may be wondering where on earth to start. A few years back when I was living in the UK I decided to quit my job and plan a big trip, and part of that trip was ‘doing Africa’. I had no idea where to start, so… Read more »

Spanish in Rosario

I’m sad to say, but our time in Rosario, Argentina has come to an end. We’ll be leaving Rosario tomorrow morning. I know, that’s rather sudden! We had found out about our departure a few weeks ago. I was waiting to say anything about it, though, because I was hoping I would have a little more information to share other than “we’re leaving.” Now What? Alas, though, that is all I know right now! We’re leaving Rosario tomorrow morning, but… Read more »

sloth amazon rainforest

One of the coolest parts of staying in the Amazon Rainforest is all of the incredible critters you get to see during the day and at night. We spotted many different types of monkeys, sloths, birds, fish…and even alligators and gigantic spiders and snakes! My last post was dedicated to what it was like staying at Treehouse Lodge. (Click here if you missed that.) So, for this post, I will be sharing one of the ways we spent our time… Read more »

Treehouse Lodge

As the name suggests, the Treehouse Lodge is indeed a lodge made up of honest-to-goodness treehouses! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was nonstop excitement for us. (This is where we were over the weekend and earlier this week.) Our 4 days there were chocked full of activities. So, for this post, I’m going to focus just on the lodge itself, what to expect when staying there, some cool wildlife sightings right from our treehouse and my thoughts on the price/how… Read more »

uluru

If you’re debating whether or not traveling to Australia’s famous sandstone monolith, Uluru, (a.k.a. Ayer’s Rock) is worth the journey/cost…it most definitely is. Uluru was my favorite memory of our time in Australia. The area is literally in the middle of nowhere in Australia, but for me, that was the best part. It was a wonderful way to connect with the world around you (sans cell phone reception) and learn about a very sacred area in the Australian Outback. Uluru,… Read more »

Machu Picchu

So, today’s post is going to be wildly different than my usual travel/style posts. Today I wanted to share with you all a really cool travel, writing opportunity. In addition to blogging, I do take on freelance writing/marketing assignments. And one of the companies I work with is looking to add 50 talented travel writers to their talent pool for an upcoming marketing campaign. I’m helping with the recruitment process and wanted to let my readers be the first to… Read more »

Riding horses through the Andes

Horseback riding through the Andes with Don Daniel Ranch is hands down my most favorite experience in Argentina so far. Heck, I’d say it’s one of my favorite experiences of my life! (Tied only with our adventures up Rainbow Mountain and Mount Fuji.) This is a one-of-a-kind, authentic experience I can’t recommend enough if you find yourself near Mendoza, Argentina one day. What to Expect – Getting to the Ranch For this adventure, you’ll need to book a guide. We… Read more »

Mendoza, Argentina vineyard

If you liked this post, it is now available as a self-guided tour via GPSmyCITY. Click here to download it. Mendoza, Argentina is world-famous for its amazing wineries. There are many different ways to visit these delicious wineries, and a bus tour (or a private tour with a driver) are generally the most popular. However, if you’ve been following my travel posts at all…you’ll know that my husband and I like to make these sorts of activities a bit more… Read more »

La Boca

Visiting cities in a rush is becoming an unfortunate theme on here, lately! But fret not, I’ll be returning to Buenos Aires soon enough to give it the proper visit it deserves. However, if you do end up in Buenos Aires without much time to spare, here is one way to see some of its important landmarks in just a half day. *Please note, to visit these places in a half day you will need to find a form of… Read more »
