-Service at the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires was somewhat inconsistent. We were not addressed by name as consistently as we were at international Park Hyatt locations. The vast majority of the employees at the hotel were awesome and very friendly. English is spoken by all very well.

Start this road early, try to leave your hotel by 7 in the morning so that you have time to make frequent stops to gawk at waterfalls, go on amazing hikes, and make it back so that you’re not driving on the road after dark.

In the end, the only things that were taken away were several bottles of milk and a jug of oil that didn’t last for the 8th night of Chanuka in Ushuaia.
