Experience the charming, thrilling streetside tango, fall in love with its architectural heritage, and marvel at its natural wonders. Argentina is vibrant; it is magical and seductive!
Visit Buenos Aires, a city of the stylish, party-loving porteños, various finger-licking gourmet treats and delightful museums and art galleries. Explore this bustling metropolis, including the enchanting parks, centuries’ old stone facades and buzzing wayside food and ‘mate’ cafes.
Explore Córdoba, the Cultural Capital of the Americas, and artists and nature-lovers haven, or the wine city of Mendoza for a visit to bodegas (wineries). Still, whether you’re touring Argentina for the magic of the national sport futbol (soccer), or adventure, be sure you will be stunned.
Discover the harsh, humid Patagonian jungle down south, the endless pampa grasslands and the snow-capped Andes. Hop on a raft and head out to the spectacular Iguazú Falls – the planet’s biggest group of falls. For a little more dose of adventure, go sample the country’s wonderful variety of wildlife at Península Valdés, a UNESCO World Heritage. If dying for an adrenaline-rush, give Glaciar Moreno a visit – even if just to watch the mammoth-sized icebergs cave in.
