Topic: How to do business plan uk
June 26, 2019 / By Mordred Question:
I'm in my mid-twenties and have wanted to travel to Argentina for years for a little backpacking. I just have a few questions. Is it easy to get from point A to point B? How is the snow-skiing? What about night-life? Overall enjoyment? Average daily cost? etc? etc?

Absolutely! When I first went to Argentina I was 25 and I went by myself (and I am female). How ignorant of the other user to say you will get kidnapped! Please have a look through all my answers in my profile as you will find lots of interesting information that I have given to other users.
Most recently I gave an example of a South American itinerary I put together thru my own experience:
So, to answer your questions:
The travel infrastructure in Argentina is very well established. For most Argentinos, travel to other countries is price-prohibitive, so they travel more within Argentina....Any why wouldn't they?! It is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. For backpacking it is a haven. You will meet so many people fromall over the world, including from Argentina. If I were you, I would go there with a very vague plan of what you want to do. Read up and have a look at pictures in the library and on the net for an idea, but make your real plans when you are there. You don't need to plan things in advance.
Depending on distance, the best ways to travel are by foot (within cities like Buenos Aires), by cab as well because they are cheap, but you get less of an idea where things are! The subte (underground/metro) is great as well for BA. I don't imagine you will use the buses that much, but they are handy in some instances (perhaps there will be a subte strike!).
For long distances I would travel by coach. Air travel is expensive will miss all the amazing places on the way. The coaches are so comfortable (even more than the coaches in Australia and the UK!) and for very little extra you can go business class which is even more comfortable. AND if you go business it can be cheaper than going normal class (where they don't give you food and you have to buy your own) because they give you great food, champers with dinner and then a glass of port before bed with a pillow and blanket. You can then recline in your ample leather seat and watch a movie (it should be subtitled if it is dubbed in Spanish). You will also meet great people on the buses and you only have to buy your tickets on the day or a few days before travelling.
The skiing is great and I would recomment San Carlos de Bariloche. Even without the snow, this is one of my top 5 places in Argentina. As I have said in previous answers, you will spend way more time here than you thought! It is SO pretty, the nightlife is great, the food (esp chocolates, ice cream, steak and lamb) is outstanding and there is lots to do around the area. Definitely go for a walk around Llao Llao (pron. Jow Jow) and to the Secret Lake.
The Argentinos know nightlife better than most other countries. It is amazing....especially in Buenos Aires. I thought it was much better than when I lived in London even! I have answered about the nightlife previously.
You will love Argentina and may even decide you want to live there it is so good. When I was first there I didn't speak Spanish (or Castallano, pron. Casta-jana) and it wasn't a big problem, but it would have been much better if I did. You can also study the language there. I think the way Argentinos speak their Spanish is the best of all Spanish-speaking countries. It is slightly different, but so beautiful.
Daily costs are low. Food is amazing and cheap. Backpacker accommodation is cheap and fun. The Argentine economy collapsed a number of years ago so you will find it cheap (coming from US, UK, Europe, Australia etc).
I recommend staying in a backpacker in Buenos Aires called The Hostel Clan - http://www.hostelclan.com.ar/. I stayed there 3 times! It isn't the most modern, but def the best atmosphere and the the place is an old house (big) and the people are so nice. The location is fantastic. Just off 9 de Julio (main road of 22 lanes) in Adolfo Alsina Street. Don't worry....you can't hear the street noise! For US$7 you get bed, breakfast and unlimites FREE internet (other all charge for it).
A big meal out (like a tenedor libre or all you can eat) will cost about 25pesos at a place like The Grants in Recoleta. You can't imagine the food they give you... seafood, all kinds of great meat cuts, salads, made to order pastas and pancakes, ice cream....etc.
Hope you go....it is fantastic
Originally Answered: Do you think Argentina will win the World Cup?
I doubt they'll win it but in '86 nobody thought Argentina with Maradona has a chance to win it, Messi is better than Maradona his only ''problem'' is that Messi is too young to win the WC by himself. Maradona is not great manager we all know that but Basile was and he couldn't do anything with this team. As long as Zanetti, Cambiasso, Heinze, Veron and other washed out players will play then the chances are minimal, Basile ruined the team and Maradona did more than great with what he had. There are ''only'' 6 games until the final and even in group stage they need to win only two games to advance so 5 wins and they're in the final.... they have Nigeria, Greece and Korea in the group and I'm sure they will get to the KO stages when they will meet one of France, Uruguay, Mexico or South Africa... none of them are better than Argentina, if anything they all have equal chances to advance to quarter-finals, if Argentina can beat (I'm sure they can and will) one of those 4 teams they will meet teams from groups C&D (probably one of England, USA, Serbia or Germany) which is still great for them because they are favourite against all of them too.... so they will avoid all strong teams (Spain, Brazil, Netherlands, Italy and even Portugal) until semifinals.
The draw was GREAT for Argentina, Maradona and Messi but will they take advantage of that is another story, just look at Italy in 2006, they had by far the easiest group and their way to the final and they won it at the end.
why not? You deserve to make your dreams come true! Despite Argentina's recent economic woes, its pleasures - stunning natural wonders, an elegant capital with a European-flavoured sophistication, and a passionate culture - are still as tempting as ever. The silver lining to the financial cloud is that it's now one of the best travel bargains going around.
One of the best ways to travel around Argentina is by bus. The Buenos Aires bus station is on Av. Ramos Mejía 1680 near to Retiro Station. Long distance buses have toilets, air conditioning and coffee bar.

There are a number of companies that put together such adventures. You'll have to check to see if Argentina is on their list but I know Chili is.
Actually I just read an article that stated that a lot of Americans are buying property down there to use as vacation rentals and that it is a bargain vacation spot compared to most. Buenos Aires is supposed to have a great night life. Rurally you'll find less.
Here's a couple of links to firms that may do these trips and yes, single travelers can go.

great idea if you want to get kidnapped and killed. Go for it if you never plan to get to your thirties.
