Wooded avenues, lots of sun and some of the best wines known to humanity. Mendoza is located in the central-northern part of the province, in a foothills and plains region, on the eastern side of the Andes and can be considered one of the best cities in Argentina, with crowded open-air cafes, beautiful squares, lively district shops and a exciting nightlife that takes place both outside bars and restaurants and inside. What's more, it happens to be in the heart of the wine region.
While some may prefer to spend their days exploring the plazas and cafes in town, others may prefer to venture out into the many outdoor activities outside the city. You can choose between white water rafting, horseback riding into the Andes at sunrise, fly fishing for trout, biking through the vineyards for casual wine tastings, and for the more ambitious, climbing Mt. Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America. The city's proximity to the famous Andes also makes it the perfect base for skiers, climbers and hikers. Then there are the volcanic landscapes in the south of the province of Mendoza, as spectacularly they are considered as important internationally as Perito Moreno and Iguazu Falls.
