Argentina is one of the jewels in the Latin American crown

A vast country stretching 3,500 kilometres from the Bolivian border in the north to Ushuaia and the gateway to Antarctica in the south, it is a place that offers some of the most impressive natural wonders anywhere on earth. It has a world-class tourist infrastructure, with arguably the best cuisine on the continent, and it is safe. But its not just that that makes a trip to Argentina feel so special. The country simply has a redoubtable spirit unlike any other in the region.

IMAGINE A COUNTRY THAT HAS EVERYTHING

Although Argentina may not have the level indigenous cultural traditions that Bolivia and Peru enjoy; although it might not have the beaches, colour and sheer razzmatazz that Brazil can boast, Argentina does have a plethora of sites and experiences with which to seduce the visitor. With its dramatic Patagonian steppes, its extraordinary glaciers, its colourful mountains and deserts, its lakes and its coast, Argentina’s landscapes are second to none. Its wildlife is impressive and varied, its cuisine is world class and in its cultured, cosmopolitan capital city, it has one of the most fun metropolises anywhere on the planet.

THE MOST AMAZING PLACE ON EARTH

Being a touristic place, it provides with the greatest spectacle of water and forest ever existing on Earth - the imposing Iguazú Falls - in guaraní language "Big waters".  The semicircular waterfall at the heart of this site is some 80 m high and 2,700 m in diameter. Made up of many cascades producing vast sprays of water, it is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The surrounding subtropical rainforest has over 2,000 species of vascular plants and is home to the typical wildlife of the region: tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caymans.

 

25 COOL FACTS ABOUT ARGENTINA

Argentina is a well-known South American nation with a relatively short history but a very rich and interesting culture.  The country is widely known for the tango, elegant architecture, steak, wine, and soccer, while some of the most legendary figures of the twentieth century came from Argentina, including Eva Perón, Che Guevara, and Diego Armando Maradona. With a mainland area of 2,780,400 km2 (1,073,500 sq mi), Argentina is one of the largest countries in the world, the second largest in Latin America behind Brazil, and the largest Spanish-speaking one. Even though the earliest recorded human presence in the area of modern-day Argentina dates to the Paleolithic period, the nation has its roots in Spanish colonization during the sixteenth century. With massive waves of European immigration taking place during the last decades of the nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth, the country radically reshaped its cultural and demographic outlook and took the form it pretty much has today.
