Crazy itinerary for 12 day Argentina/Chile adventure

by /bio/tijn2001 »

I will preface this with saying I am a typical American tourist who doesn't get enough vacation time and I'm accustomed to seeing a lot in a short amount of time. Would anyone with experience in Argentina & Chile tell me if this itinerary seems a little too nuts ? I am trying to figure out what I might be able to cut out but every time I think of leaving one of these destinations out my heart just sinks. And the only other way to get in more time is to miss Christmas with my family.

I would skip Iguassu to give yourself a bit more breathing room and another day in Buenos Aires, which deserves more time than you're giving it. Yes, it's an impressive falls, but if you've been to a waterfall....
