We had an absolutely amazing honeymoon!! Thank you so much for your help in making that happen.
Our favorite place was definitely Mendoza, and Club Tapíz had a lot to do with that. We loved it there and didn’t want to leave! They even gave us a bottle of champagne (sparkling torrontés) with cherries and chocolates to celebrate our honeymoon. That was a really nice touch. The whole place has an air of luxury about it that we were looking for in our honeymoon, and I’m so glad we were able to relax and enjoy our time at club Tapíz. We also really enjoyed their complimentary wine tastings every evening! It was a fun way to make friends with other guests, and it really felt like a family event. The restaurant there was also wonderful! I truly can’t say anything bad about it. Oh, and as a bonus for us, there were puppies right outside the front of club Tapíz! So every day we went out to play with them and it really made our honeymoon! And of course we had so much fun visiting different wineries. We hired a driver one day, and the second day we did a bike tour. Both days were amazing. Mendoza is such a beautiful place!
CasaSur Palermo was great as well. They were very good to us, especially on our last day when they held our bags all day long and even allowed us to shower in the spa before heading to the airport. The staff at the front desk was helpful in answering our questions and helping us to book reservations. We enjoyed that they offer a complimentary welcome drink that you can take to the gorgeous rooftop. We only wish we knew about the rooftop sooner, we didn’t find it until our last night. All in all, it was a great place to stay. And we loved staying in Palermo. I felt safe there, and it was easy to get to the subway to go into town.
La Cantera Lodge was nice. We felt that the photos online made it look more luxurious than it actually was, but we really enjoyed the pool and restaurant there. I ultimately wanted to feel like we were in the jungle, and I was still happy to feel that way. The falls are just incredible! We enjoyed every second of seeing them. At first I wasn’t sure if we should bother going to the Brazilian side (since we had to pay for visas, etc) but it was so worth it!!
One thing we should have looked into ahead of time was the weight limits on checked bags with the domestic Aerolineas Argentinas flights. They only allow 15 kilos, so with our purchased bottles of wine from Mendoza, we were over the limit and had to pay. I think you mentioned that you’d be going to Argentina for your honeymoon, so I just wanted to warn you about that. It’s not too expensive at least.
I’ll be sure to write reviews and post pictures for you soon! We truly had an amazing honeymoon. It was everything we wanted and more! So thank you so much!
All the best,
Marissa and Sam
