Discover the Country of Argentina
The country of Argentina covers most of the southern half of South America - meaning it is a large country with a lot to offer. Home of the Tango and much famed Eva Perón (Evita), this is a place of sensuality, love and beauty. Whether you're looking at the graceful skyscrapers of Buenos Aires or the thunderous waterfalls of Iguazú, Argentina will captivate your imagination and stir your senses.
Though Argentina has had a somewhat turbulent economic and political history, it emerges today as a well developed country with a somewhat European flavor. This is a place where Latin Americans and Europeans feel at ease with one-another, a place where travel is a pleasure and soccer is a passion. This is clearly seen in a city like Cordoba. You can kick back with the locals or retire to the sanctum of your hotel room, explore the rainforest, hit the slopes of Bariloche or spent the night doing the Tango.
If you are traveling the country, you will find an interesting change in climate and scenery. In the northwest of Argentina, you'll find a desert plateau. Not too far away, lie the grasslands of the Pampas. Iguazú has an amazing rainforest jungle while Patagonia - shared with Chile and located in the Andes Mountains, will give you the privilege of seeing some amazing glaciers.
Buenos Aires is an exciting cosmopolitan city. From delightful cafés to sexy nightclubs - it has it all. Some of the older neighborhoods such as Recoleta and Belgrano have a very aged and warm feel which take you back in time. In Buenos Aires the sun shines brightly, the people are friendly and everyone is made to feel at home.
Because of the diverse nature of the country, there are numerous opportunities for a number of outdoor activities. Hiking, climbing, rafting and kayaking are but a few. The beaches are also inviting, and the waterfalls are truly unforgettable.
A trip to Argentina will dazzle and delight you in a way that only this country can. You will find your passion ignited, your mind revitalized and your senses reawakened. Argentina is one of the ultimate South American holiday destinations.
