Mendoza has a population of 115,041 residents and a metropolitan population of 1,055,679 residents as of the 2010 census [INDEC], making Greater Mendoza the country’s fourth biggest census metropolitan area.

Mendoza is located on Ruta Nacional 7, the main route between Buenos Aires and Santiago. The city is often visited by climbers on route to Aconcagua (the highest peak in the Western and Southern Hemispheres) and adventure visitors interested in climbing, trekking, horseback riding, rafting, and other activities. Skiers flock to the city in the winter for convenient access to the Andes.

The Mendoza region’s two primary businesses are olive oil production and Argentine wine production. The region around Greater Mendoza is Latin America’s greatest wine-producing region. As one of the nine Great Wine Capitals, Mendoza is a growing enotourism destination and a base for touring the region’s hundreds of wineries along the Argentina Wine Route.

Tourism in Mendoza

Mendoza is a city located in western Argentina’s Cuyo arid area. Mendoza is the epicenter of Argentina’s world-renowned wine industry. Additionally, it is close to Aconcagua, the world’s tallest peak outside of the Himalayas. Mendoza is the provincial capital of Mendoza.

Mendoza, despite its location in an exceedingly arid desert area, has a large artificial irrigation system that provides for both urban greenery and the growing of grapes required to manufacture its wines. The majority of roadways feature irrigation canals on both sides, including pedestrian and vehicular bridges. These are flooded on a periodic basis using water diverted from the river. The trees and broad avenues provide the city a lovely atmosphere, in contrast to the stark sense of many Argentine towns.

To the immediate west, the Andes Pre-Cordillera towers above the city, with glimpses of some of the Andes’ snow-covered peaks (during most of the year).

In Mendoza, the Siesta, or afternoon sleep, is still practiced. Most companies shut between 13:00 and 17:00 and reopen between 20:30 and 21:30. Banks are only open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Climate of Mendoza

Summers in the city may be very hot and dry. January is especially hot, with temperatures as high as 40°C (104°F). However, the absence of humidity makes the heat and cold more tolerable than in steamy Buenos Aires, for example. However, the adjacent mountains keep you cool, even in the heat.

Winters in the city are mildly chilly from late June to late August, but are bitterly cold in the mountains. Numerous ski resorts are found in the vicinity of Mendoza.

The Zonda wind, which is characterized by warm, dry air descending from the mountains, occurs regularly throughout the winter, raising temperatures by up to 20°C (36°F) in a matter of hours. These episodes may result in temperatures ranging from mild to scorching, even in the dead of winter.
