People over there said not to bother with Asia and that I should make sure go to El Galope. BTW I got to El Galope at around 8pm and it was empty. I was concerned. By the time I left it was packed. Cant believe how late people go out.

I don't understand the Al Galope obsession.

anyone have any suggestions for grocery stores that sell frozen travel meals in BA?  Also looking for private guide, driver?  Likely staying in Recoleta and going to Chabad for shabbat- is this still my best option?

A bit too late for you - apologies - but for others, we ordered meals in advance from Open Kosher which we collected frozen and took on our travels to Patagonia.

Has anyone ever stayed at Hotel Masliah in BA?
It Seems from some Google reviews that it is a Jewish hotel.
Any info will be of help.
TIA

Anyone know where to buy kosher frozen meals in Buenos Aires?

I saw the mention of Open Kosher. Any others? Are there any available in the kosher supermarkets/grocery stores?

Yes, a lot of kosher stores and restaurants in BA,Argentina has the largest Jewish community in South America with nearly 200,000 people , there is also a Kosher McDonald’s located inside the Abasto shopping mall.Jewish food to be discovered in Once neighborhood of Buenos Aires with the largest Jewish population,  a walk through the neighborhood, you'll see lots of  kosher places, and you'll you see orthodox families gathering around. Many of these stores will provide frozen kosher meals.

Monday – Argentina side of Iguazu
Tuesday – fly to Buenos Aires + city

Saturday – Buenos Aires
Sunday – Gaucho day trip, late flight home
Monday – Land at 6 am, go to work

Sounds good.

Personally I'd fly to BA late Tuesday or even early Wednesday so you get some more time in Iguazu as on Sunday upon arrival you'll probably be quite tired. I'd also skip the trip to Colonia as there's not much to do there AFAIK.

Check out the Lujan zoo while in BA.

What about ditching some of the BA day trips and sneaking GIG into the itin?

Maybe GIG is before IGU? That's exactly what we did (meaning GIG) and we thought it was quite worth it (besides the fact that it rained the entire time we were in GIG).

NYC-GIG-IGU/IGR-AEP/EZE-NYC
Looks good to me.

Exactly. My point was that unless he's flying straight from NYC to IGU, he's probably coming from GIG or GRU.

How much time do you need in Rio? Where's a better place for shabbos?

2 nights in GIG, 2 nights in IGU, and 2 nights in EZE are all sufficient.
I love GRU for Shabbos, but not much to do there besides eat.
GIG and EZE are probably both good shabbos options. EZE wins for me because they have a PH :D

That might be too aggressive for the people I'm traveling with this time. I'm going to pitch it to them and see.  Thanks!
