Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA

  • Jun 20th– Jul 3rd, 2019
  • TOTAL COST: $ 2,652.00(USD) + Airfare
    • $500 deposit due ASAP to hold your spot on the trip.
      • Remaining due by May 15, 2019 or full payment if no deposit.
  • VOLUNTEER WEEK: Of the many organizations working in Argentina, we selected one – Voluntario Global – that has been doing great work in a variety of places in the country for more than ten years and has welcomed many groups of international volunteers – like us – to help them with their growing list of projects. We’ll be able to work closely with their staff and other volunteers to make sure that the intended results are achieved and that their work continues.
  • TOURIST WEEK: Over the years Argentina, like most countries, has endured periods of austerity and relished times of prosperity.  Whatever their circumstances, though, the Argentine people remain resilient and have always maintained their love of dancing – most notably, the Tango!  We’ll see people dancing wherever we go in Buenos Aires, and some of us will be able to participate, too.  We’ll also see the beautiful colonial parts of the city and savor the incredible flavors of the local cuisine.

In the northwest part of the country, on the border between Argentina to Brazil and very close to Paraguay, we’ll visit Iguazu Falls.  These famous cataracts stretch for 1.7 miles – that’s about 2 ½ times longer than Niagara Falls!  The raw power and energy will leave you speechless.

No trip to Argentina would be complete without a visit to the wine country in the Andean foothills around Mendoza. They produce some extremely popular wines in their rich varieties of soil types that are enjoyed around the world. We’ll stop at several of the wineries there to tour and, of course, sample some of their wines.  Whether you choose to indulge in their wines or not, you will find this part of the trip to be very worthwhile from many other aspects as well, including the absolutely stunning views of the towering Andes Mountains!

Lastly, on the 2nd of July – the day before we leave – there will be a Total Solar Eclipse coming across South America. We plan to be in the midst of it! We’ll watch in awe as dusk, night, and dawn occur within a five minute span of time.  It’s a truly amazing event!  Start packing!
