Gualeguaychu is a tiny town, you will feel you are in Cuba of the 1950s, hence hotels fill out quickly and there are only a few worth staying at. Because this is summer vacation season for Argentines, those hotels generally stipulate a minimum stay of 3, 5, or 7 nights. Should we be unable to accommodate hotel reservations, there are a couple of options we suggest in order to take advantage of the carnival Argentina experience.
Option 1. We transport you for a weekend stay at an Estancia close to Entre Rios province and transfer you to carnival from the Estancia. This has to be a weekend excursion as we cannot arrive at the Estancia long after midnight but it’s a great way to wind down after the excitement of Carnival with a parilla BBQ on Sunday before your transfer back to Buenos Aires.
Option 2. This is a great option for the hardier soul and one we run frequently – Take the Gualeguaychu carnival experience in ONE DAY. Transfers in and out of Gualeguaychu from Buenos Aires and entry to Carnival, returning immediately after the party and before the town gets rowdy. A long day but an unforgettable one!
