Travel Argentina in LuxuryTravel Argentina in LuxuryI'm often asked to talk about some my favorite places to travel. So, just for my friends at GoGirlfriend, I'm giving up the inside scoop on luxury adventure travel in Patagonia, Argentina.


San Carlos de Bariloche is my "Switzerland" in the province of Río Negro, Argentina, South America.

It's a luxury playground for the rich and famous, but it's also my home. This region of Patagonia lays claim virgin green forests set against snow-capped mountains and deep blue lakes. Travel Argentina in LuxuryTravel Argentina in Luxury

The Lake District is not only beautiful - it's an Eden where every breath is fresh and healing. Such natural beauty has even enticed celebrities like Madonna to take up residence here.

While in this region of Argentina, you'll experience true luxury in a fairytale setting. Enjoy adventure in style during the day while being pampered with spa treatments and 5 star gourmet meals in the evening.

Make sure you find time to visit the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires and enjoy a tour of the city's museums, art galleries, fairs and antique markets.

Sample some exquisite Argentinean wine at a private wine tasting session with an expert sommelier. Enjoy gourmet authentic meals in fine restaurants, and linger over cocktails in one of the many chic bars and lounges.

Finish your evening with a traditional tango show at Esquina Gardel, or enjoy a private box at the world-class Teatro Colón (Colón Theater).

You also must see the architect Alejandro Bustillo's marvel: Llao Llao Golf and Spa Resort. Located on a small hill between lakes Nahuel Huapi and Moreno, the Llao Llao is ideally situated.

Imagine yourself sailing in luxurious style as you enjoy the deep waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi aboard a private sailing boat. Or simply picture yourself relaxing in the marvelous outdoor heated swimming pool while watching the sun set over Mount Tronador.

This is the best in luxury travel Argentina has to offer.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
