I'm planning on going to Aconcagua this dec. 2010 and i was looking at the site for Mendoza, and under the "aco" section it seems as though the cost for a 20 day permit to climb in peak season is http://aconcagua.mendoza.gov.ar/ $1800. My spanish is non existant but i seem to recall looking at this site a few months ago and the cost not being quite so high. Am i mistaking or is that what it's going for these days?
Your not the first person to have a stroke when that figure is first viewed. Noticed that on a poster at the permit office. Almost fainted until it occurred to me it was the peso sign. Still a far cry from the 75 dollars it used to cost in the 80's. (•:
