Argentina, New Hostel in Rio Grande
Sadly, with the closing of the Hostel Argentino in Rio Grande it seemed like there was no other alternative but to head straight to Ushuaia!
FORTUANTELY THERE IS NOW ANOTHER REASON TO STOP IN RIO GRANDE!
Bed & Breakfast RUTA 40
While travelling in Argentina on 2 F650GS bikes, my wife had an accident in Rio Grande when we were lucky to meet Guillermo Daddario (aka Willie) at the local hospital.
Once given the all clear from the doctors, Guillermo, put both myself and my wife up for 4 weeks (under doctors orders!) while Chloe recovered from her accident.
Willie has fantastic contacts in Rio Grande, he speak English, he is an active motor biker, canoeist, cyclist and he ran the Club Nautica Campsite for many years.
We can't speak highly enough of Willie and everything he did for us.
So, if the borders have taken a little longer than expected and you need a nights sleep before the last 2 or 3 hour sprint to Ushuaia, then look no further!

It is worth staying in Rio Grande!
I couldn't agree with Chris more!
Stopped in Rio Grande when coming back (north) from Ushuaia, looking for affordable accomodation for one night and found Ruta 40 B&B... and Willie!
Willie is just a great guy and more than a B&B this is a place to make friends, rest your body (and your bike) for as long as you want (or need to). It has WiFi, nice and very clean beds, a comfortable common area/kitchen... I can not speak well enough, you should come and take a look!
Up to this day I have stayed 3 nights and haven't decided when I will be ready to part; one thing is for sure: I now have a good friend in Rio Grande: Willie!
