Mendoza has a lot to offer the tourist in search of a rewarding and relaxing experience. Here, you can indulge in the rich historical tapestry of an ancient city whilst also enjoying the conveniences of a modern city. You also have the opportunity to easily plan a trip to take in the sights of the beautiful Argentinian countryside. If you plan to visit Mendoza, March is a good time, because that’s when the local festival of the Vendimia is held, commemorating the annual grape harvest. Also of note is the Parque San Martin, a huge, exquisitely landscaped park that is home to a number of things to do, including a zoo, a football stadium, and even the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo.
