Pre & Post Tours

Argentina is one of the very few places in the world where remote landscapes from the comfort of luxurious small hotels and gracious estancias with great hospitality can be explored. There are tropical rainforests, endless glaciers, ancient archaeological sites, snow-capped mountain ranges, shimmering salt flats,; stylish cities like Buenos Aires, where chic boutiques and bars abound, and pioneer towns like Ushuaia at the very end of the world.

The infrastructure is excellent for travellers, many people speak English, and a network of internal flights make it easy to travel around. Argentines are friendly to foreigners and do hospitality in style.

How to Move Around in order to make a memorable experience in Argentina, it’s important to plan a well thought out itinerary, taking to account best logistics, weather conditions and secuence. Given the size of the country, distances between reagions usually prove to large to cover by car and there isn’t a network of passenger trains either. Therefore, flying becomes the necessary way to combine destinations. Buenos Aires is the air transport hub, wherever you decide to go it will most likely be through the capital.

To help pick the right fit of a Pre or Post Conference Trip, we suggest to contact Mai10, to get your unique tailor-made experiential journey organized.
