Casa Antucura is one of the best hotels in the world. And definitely one to travel to in Argentina. It is ideally located to explore the wine region of Mendosa, and to fully appreciate the marvels of the Andes.

The region of Mendoza, located 1031 km west of the capital Buenos Aires, at the foot of the Andes Mountains, is the cradle of Malbec, the most famous wine of Argentina. At the foot of the Andes: The Aconcagua, the highest point of the Andes mountain range, nicknamed the “Colossus of America”, is located thirteen kilometers from the Chilean border. It rises to an altitude of 6,962 meters and dominates a vast provincial park protecting typical animal species of the Andes, such as the Andean Condor and the guanaco, as well as a rare and fragile vegetation.

The climate is arid and the snow cover tenuous, despite the existence of some modest glaciers. Its ascent is therefore relatively easy for well-prepared people, equipped with oxygen and in good physical condition, in spite of sometimes violent windy phenomena. Also the mountain seems to have been occupied very early by Quechua populations.
