 I am travelling to Argentina with my wife and adult son at the end of December 2011. Does anyone know of a travel agent in, or who is intimately familiar with Argentina who can hep with arrangements. We are shomer shabbat and kashrut and do not speak spanish. We need someone to book hotels, tours outside and in Buenos Aires and Iguasu Falls. Any other suggestions regarding the above would be appreciated. Also places to buy food and restaurants.
We are more comfortable with the phone so if you can provide a phone number we would be happy to call, otherwise e-mail. Our phone number in L.A. is 310-201-4786.

thanks
joeig

So my wife and I are hitting Machu Picchu, Easter Island, and Buenos Aires this June. I've got hotels booked for the first two parts of the trip, but I'm looking for some advice on the BA portion.
We have mid-tier status with both Hyatt (Platinum) and SPG (Gold), and we're deciding between 3 different hotels and payment options and I was hoping someone here could give us some advice. The 3 possible hotels on our list are the Park Tower, Buenos Aires (SPG - on Points + Cash), the Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center (On Points or Points + Cash), and the Park Hyatt (Hyatt - on points).
The first 2 seem to occupy the same basic property, and I just was wondering if there is enough difference between them to justify shelling out more for the Park Tower. The Park Hyatt looks amazing and so that is always a good option, but until the bonuses clear on both of our Chase Sapphire Preferred cards, we're a little short on points for the full 5 nights. Perhaps it makes sense to split the trip up between two different hotels?

In terms of shabbos, which are better located for walking to shul/meals and for just walking around and sightseeing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I believe your best bet for Shabbos is the Sheraton with this Chabad House about a mile away from it.
If you like walking and are willing to walk about 3 miles you have other options.

not sure about sightseeing in that area as to what i recall there's only a port that ships containers in that area

+1 there might be more to see, just if its within the next month it might be too hot.
