I am planning on visiting Medellin El Poblado for at least a week around December hopefully it will be my first time out of the motherland. I have been looking into Bariloche as it looks like a great area with forest, lakes, and the Patagonia mountains. I had the impression it is very peaceful and quite in that region the southern most parts of SA. How long where you there for and please tell me more is it better to fly into B.A.?
I enjoyed Buenos Aires. I would recommend that and I enjoyed the Palermo Soho area.
Bariloche is a ski town that doubles as kind of a cottagy lake spot in the summer (I went in December).
If it was me I would do Medellin & BA. If you are just looking to unwind then I would go to Bariloche.
