Hotels in Mendoza

Mendoza for Easter? Looking for a room

Locro for lunch

Some friends are planning a trip to Buenos Aires in March and want to go to Mendoza for Semana Santa (Easter week). I put together a list of hotels in Mendoza for them to consider . But since it’s also harvest season and just after the harvest festival–La Vendimia, maybe we need to book now.

I’ve started putting together a few lists for my friends. And just in case you might be planning a trip to Mendoza at Easter, here are some of the results of my research. The hotels listed below are mostly outside of the city of Mendoza. There are two main areas with wineries (bodegas) and boutique-type hotels: Chacras de Coria and Tupungato.    Chacras de Coria is a beautiful little town in Lujan de Cuyo near the Maipu valley (sort of the Napa Valley of Mendoza). It’s picturesque and there are some fantastic restaurants in town. Also, it’s much closer to the city of Mendoza so driving in at night to try some of the restaurants in the city would be easier from here than from Tupungato. And there are more wineries in this area.

Tupungato is more rustic in terms of accommodations and restaurants, but more majestic in terms of beauty. It’s further away (in the Valle de Uco) and less crowded. The mountains are gorgeous. It’s much higher up than Chacras and the places here feel more gaucho-like. It’s a different sort of experience. It’s the difference between Aspen, Telluride and Crested Butte: Mendoza being Aspen, Chacras being Telluride, and Tupungato being Crested Butte.
