Expats gatherings in Mendoza
Hello! Can anyone recommend favorite cities to live in Mendoza where I can find expats? Is there more than one? If so, what are those recommended places? Anyone in Mendoza who "works from home" with a foreign based company? If so, I would highly appreciate information on the internet service in that/those recommended areas where you work, as my wife and I both work from home too and need good and reliable internet and phone service like oxygen. You can all reply through this forum or PM me. Any bit of information you may all share with us, will be most valuable and we'll be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!

Searching4Peace,

I admire your candid questions, however, you need to do some of the heavy lifting.

Mendoza is a City and a Province.

Surrounding Mendoza are many quaint areas (cities) for example Lujan de Cujo.

May I suggest you Google for a map of Mendoza City and Province. You'll discover a host of information including economics, population, crime rates and more.

Once you have narrowed down your choices spend additional time time researching what attracts you.

Then ask questions from people who live in that City or are familiar with it.

TomP: I am a grown up and highly educated person, and so is my wife. We do not make spare of the moment decisions. We just returned from our third trip to Mendoza and we liked it very much, and for that reason, we're considering moving there. We school ourselves about every place we go to. We don't need such advise. Is there crime in Mendoza? Sure there is, as much as there is in Buenos Aires in the US and the rest of the globe, but without the guns.
We still look forward to meeting expats living in that lovely province. You give advise about living in Argentina while you live in the US, so please, leave it up to us to make our own decisions, as unwise as you may think they are. Thank you.

Searching4Peace,

Whoa! Who put a porcupine in your picket basket?

Asking a question about a statement made isn't challenging one's education level. Sorry you took such umbrage.

I thought learning was based on hearing various points of view, else we might as well look in a mirror and talk to our image, after all, it will never question what we say or how we say it.

I've lived in BA and Mendoza and both were wonderful experiences that I will never forget.

My vineyards in San Rafael keep me in contact with both Argentines and Foreigners. Weekly I get updates regarding the economy, wages, and politics from the workers, middle-class and upper-class.

It sounds like you are well prepared to enjoy a most enjoyable journey.

Good luck.

I live in San Rafael.
I think, being an Argentine born of foreighn parents, that the only two cities in Mendoza province where you will find expats in a resonable number are Mendoza city and San Rafael.
Internet is available and fairly reliable.

Hello Pampas. Thank you for your message. I looked at San Rafael in the map and it seems a bit far from Mendoza city. We heard loads of good things about it, but considering my wife has family in Mendoza, we will probably settle somewhere near them. Some of her cousins recommend looking at buying property in a "barrio privado" as they did. We'll sure take several trips down to San Rafael and many other places in the province, once we are settled. We still like to meet expats who live in Mendoza city area and get together with them.
Thanks again for your advise.
