Well, you're doing the work twice (2 proposals in the same country),
after all :)
Some (personal) comments:
-what exaclty did you lead to make 2 proposals? (i have read something about
this in IRC, but i think this an interesting point)
-if the team were asked to choose a venue, what venue would be chosen?
-could you make an extra page pointing the main differences between both
Besides the 5 hours by car to go from the airport to the venue, i like more
the "mar de plata" proposal, i was watching the hotel's webpage (sorry, i think
it is spanish only :( ) and it seems excellent.
About the flight prices from Europe to Buenos Aires, when i was searching
for my plane ticket for dc6, i was working with an argentinian, and we were
talking about prices and making comparatives (flight to Mexico DC vs Buenos
Aires from Madrid), and we came to the conclusion that the price was
almost the same. In the past debconf, a lot of people from Europe flew
via Madrid, so i think it was worth to mention.
Btw, i was curious to know the situation of both cities, and i found this map:
