If you are looking for things to do in Mendoza, look no further than the city center. The central Plaza Independencia and four satellite plazas offer relaxation, animation and history - and are home to museums, monuments and interesting open air artwork. Our number two pick also enables you to stay outside - it is the city's main park, the Parque General San Martin, which is really a city in the city. There are more museums but above all beautifully landscaped parkland, a boating lake and an imposing monument to the war of independence. Perhaps the most important element is the pair of wrought iron gates that form the park's main entrance. Skiing in the Andes - pick number five - and rafting in the mountain rivers - pick number nine - hammer home the idea that Mendoza is about two things, wine and the great outdoors. If you need some rest and pampering after all that activity, then the ideal place without a doubt is our number three on the list of Top 10 things to do in Mendoza: the Kaua club and spa at the Park Hyatt hotel.
