The City of Mendoza, known as "the land of sunshine and wine" is the capital of Cuyo province. Home to Mt Aconcagua and Malbec wines, it is one of the most beautiful cities in Argentina.
Nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, it is a man-made oasis where the Mendoza and Tunuyán Rivers have been channelled into a huge irrigation system, giving life to everything it touches.
The climate in Mendoza is moderate, though its mountains provide a certain degree of aridity. Summer temperatures range between 18-33ºc with very hot days and fresh nights. In the winter, the ski season, the minimum temperatures drop to 3ºc and the maximums hit 16ºc.
Mendoza's museums are full of historical interest, particularly pertaining to the Argentinian hero, San Martin. It has a buzzing café culture and is the starting point for adventures such as skiing, mountaineering and river rafting along the Mendoza River. Not forgetting Mendoza's Wine Route, where visitors are able to sample produce from several local wineries which have made this region world famous.
