Great. And Mar del Plata is a quite nice, quiet and flat city, which
will help on this as well. On this subject, I think (having only been
there ~10 years ago, but not in Mendoza) that Mar del Plata will win
hands down. There is _big_ touristic infrastructure, and the city is
not small, so I guess connectivity and availability of anything we
might need to buy will not be much of an issue - But again, re:
accessibility: How hard is it to move from the Buenos Aires airport
until Mar del Plata for a person with disabilities? Both for the
Ezeiza-Autoparque (the two Buenos Aires airports) route and for going
by land to Mar del Plata?

When I was there, I took the train from Buenos Aires to Mar del
Plata. It was a nice, 5hr ride, much more comfortable than going by
bus. Maybe even more disabled-friendly. Does the train service still
