Mendoza in Argentina – The famous city of wine
Mendoza is said to be one of the most prosperous and organized cities in Argentina and a fast-growing economic centre as well. Thanks to around 320 days of sunshine yearly, Mendoza can grow delicious grapes and hence produces 70% of Argentina´s excellent wine.
Its idyllic location among watered vineyards, parks and pedestrian areas lined with countless trees make the city a beautiful green oasis in this extremely dry region at the foot of the Andes.
Being a central touristic spot, you will soon find yourself trying out all kinds of outdoor activities such as mountain-biking, trekking, rafting, horse riding or skiing.
And after a day full of volunteering activity or working at your internship company, there are plenty of wineries, bars and clubs to visit.
