Located just a few miles east of the foothills of the Andes, Mendoza is a traveler’s dream.
Mendoza Delights All
Gorgeous scenery, a temperate climate year-round, nearby wineries, a manageable downtown, outstanding cuisine, and a varied cultural calendar make Mendoza a favored stop. With easy access to South America’s highest peak, Mount Aconcagua (22,974 feet above sea level), Mendoza delights all who visit with its sheer variety.
The city retains some 19th-century character and is full of fine open spaces with a shady canopy of sycamores.
Argentina’s Premier Wine-Growing Region
Not only does the city boast well-kept parks and streets, elegant tree-lined avenues, and a historic heritage, but the excellence of its wines and the beauty of its surrounding Andean landscape with its favorable conditions make it Argentina’s premier wine-growing region and top producer of Malbec.
It is also a major destination for sports enthusiasts. Many outdoor sports adventure activities such as rafting, hiking, mountain biking, para-gliding and more can be enjoyed in beautiful surroundings.
