We’ve had two city mini break stops on route to BA from Iguazu.
First we spent 2 nights in Córdoba in a very hipster hostel with a climbing wall inside it! A bit too hipster for us who like going to bed at 10pm and have a hot water bottle……but an experience all the same. We did a ‘free walking tour’ of the city with a super and enthusiastic guide called Martin who walked us round the city for 2.5hrs (20km!) and didn’t run out of things to tell us and things to see. Beautiful city with a lot of interesting history. Clear Spanish and French influences mixed with the ‘liberators of South America’ statues and monuments and some of the most breathtaking churches I’ve ever seen dotted throughout the city.
Then the next mini break we moved onto Rosario. Into the most lovely and chic hostel where one of the guests let us in and gave us a load of info for our city tour the next day. A lovely Colombian guy called (you guessed it) Juan who is studying for a month in Rosario. The best informal tour guide we’ve met so far and we set off Monday morning with a map covered in biro scrawls for our second city tour in 3 days. We covered another 20km in Rosario and apart from a minor toilet desperado detour (30mins of pee desperation with no public loos, cafes or museums open at siesta time!!) we had a great day and saw lots of the city.
