San Francisco

South America, Uruguay, Carmelo, Bariloche, El Calafate, Ushuaia, Rio Gallegos

Add a few days in Uruguay during South America trip?

My husband and I will be spending 17 days in SA in January.  We arrive in Rio (3 days) and depart from  Buenos Aires (3 days).  I'm trying to decide between a few itineraries for the 11 days in between:  

1:  Uruguay (Carmelo) x 3 days, Bariloche x 3 days, El Calafate (Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno glacier) x 3 days (flying between each place with 2 days marked for travel)

2:  Ushuaia x 3 days, El Calafate x 3 days, Bariloche x 3 days (flying between each place with 2 days marked for travel)

3:  Road trip from Ushuaia or Rio Gallegos to Bariloche

We generally like to rent a car and do a road trip for a portion of each vacation we take, so I would prefer option #3 if it's feasible.  I'm having a hard time finding one-way car rental options for less than $320USD/day.  Any thoughts or suggestions about this itinerary and/or renting a car would be appreciated.

Doing a road trip for Ushuaia to Bariloche would be really cool, but I don't have any suggestions for finding a cheaper car rental. If you are looking for flights in Patagonia, the state run airline in Argentina is cheap If it was me picking I would go with the options in reverse order 3,2,1.
