So this is what my experience is with these guys. Miguel the owner or manager is a reasonable guy, but I also don’t get the feeling he’s going for 100% service. They do a regular check up for 30.000, not bad.

I read they were expensive already, which I didn’t mind too much, at least if the job would be done right. They found more major parts wrong than the Goodyear garage, where I’d done a check too. Could be possible. Maybe a little too proactive with replacing parts that could last longer, but we wanted to be sure of a good vehicle to sell.

Miguel needed an afternoon and a morning to make a price list, was 471 euro’s for replacing rotulas top and bottom, bearings, axiales and rod end and some small extras. We brought the van in that afternoon (3 o clock instead of 12), so it would be done in 2 days at midday instead of one day later at late afternoon. Wasn’t a problem, but then got a whatsapp it was delayed until 4 instead of 12. So some small delays, but that can happen.

On the way back after picking it up we hit a pothole with the left front wheel and something was making a strange sound. Unfortunately couldn’t bring it back on the Saturday after because it was feriado. So checked at another garage who I talked to before and is super helpful and seems really honest (on IOverlander ‘general mechanic’ near the corner of Avenida diez de Julio with Roberto Espinoza). They looked for free at the car (where other garages wanted 30.000) and we saw the wheel was just crooked.

I whatsapped Miguel and eventually he made it to the garage so at least we could park inside and we looked and saw that inferior rotula (lower ball joint) collapsed. The security ring had broken or wasn’t mounted right (I guess) and was pushed to the side.

They got right on top of it on Monday morning and replaced the left AND the right lower ball joint too to be sure. And I asked if they could do a bumpy test ride. They estimated it would all be done at 12 but I waited until 2. But at least they fixed it as a guarantee.

Alltogether I’m not 100% convinced about the garage. It might have been unlucky with some bad parts, but it could be a sign of cheap parts too. Also the timing may just have been bad with all the small delays. But the two workers there I saw didn’t seem slow like at Goodyear but didn’t seem fast either. Communication was okay, notified with whatsapp with the first delay. But didn’t let me know with the second delay.

We arrived and the owner want 10US$. We give him 100 Pesos. The place is dirty, the toilets are dirty, one shower full with water, the other out of work. No telefon receiving. The onliest good here is the beach. The road up to here is very bad, you need 4x4 and high clearance.

There is a huge parking area across the road for big rigs if needed. The price includes breakfast (fruit, yoghurt, pastries, bread, coffee, tea, jam, butter, Dulce de leche) a private bathroom, private parking for many bikes or 2-3 cars (or as many as you like if happy to park outside), fan, use of kitchen, good WiFi, seating areas with shade and without. Bed was comfy. Very friendly staff. Very short walk to main plaza, a well stocked shop just over a block away and plenty of bodegas to choose from.

Free street parking on 6th street just across from LACMA. It’s a really busy Main Street so expect it to be loud. Parked here for 2 nights without any issues. Street cleaning on Tuesdays from 8am-10am no parking then. If you have bikes this is a great place to park your rig and bike around the city.

We went here for the 4.15pm tour and we were the only ones which was great. Tours are 50 pesos per person still including a tour if the winery, explanation of processes and tasting of 4 wines plus cheese. Our guide asked us if we preferred sweet or dry. Good portions. Very relaxed. We bought a Torrontes reserva for 120 pesos and the cheese was fantastic (costs 175 pesos per pound). Many wines available to buy in their shop ranging from 90 to 250 pesos (I think) or a little more for large bottles of table wine. Highly recommended.

Very clean place with all services, toilets, showers with hot water and electricity. The owner is very welcoming. If you ride the night at $ 25 USD per person camping is free. I recommand it.
Endroit très propre avec tous les services, toilettes, douches à l’eau chaude et électricité. Le propriétaire est très recevant. Si vous faites le tour de nuit à 25$USD par personne le camping est gratuit. Je le recommande.

Fascinating museum of the rail history of Australia. In Peterborough met the north-south and the east-west railways. Visits by guided tour only. The tour lasts 90 minutes. It cycles between all items on display and therefore can be joined at any moment. No need to wait for the next tour.

The resort (or private residences, not sure what it was) seems to be finished. Now there is a gate in front. We opened the gate and walked up the property, but we did not bother to ask to stay for camping, as this is clearly not meant as camping ground. Anyway, it indeed is a nice place, still with plenty of space to camp. So if you feel like, give it a shot.
