Argentina is the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world. Its capital city, Buenos Aires is well worth a visit for the amazing architecture, but there’s far more to it than that. Learn the tango in one of the milongas (dance salons), enjoy theatre along Correintes Avenue, take in opera at Teatro Colon and, of course, enjoy the perfectly grilled steaks in the many parillas (steakhouses). The nightlife never stops. Whether you’re looking for jazz or disco, clubs or restaurants there’s something for everyone.

Cataratas del Iguazu

Complex of waterfalls (Cataratas del Iguazu) on Iguazu River on border of Brazil and Argentina.

Other cities worth a visit are Menoza and San Juan for the wine buffs, San Carlos de Bariloche for trekking and skiing, and Rosario for the stunning neoclassical architecture. Ushuaia is the most southern city in the world and water sport enthusiasts should certainly visit for sailing, kayaking and scuba diving, while hiking and skiing are also available.

The landscape in Argentina rises to the very highest peak in the Americas at Cerro Aconcagua and falls to 105m below sea level at Laguna del Carbón, which is also the lowest point in the Americas. With such heights and depths, the variety of different terrains and wildlife to see is astonishing.

Take in the Perito Moreno Glacier at the Glaciers National Park; explore the nature reserve at Ibera Wetlands, with its eco village; view the spectacular Iguazu Falls or explore the Nahuel Huapi National Park right at the foot of the Andes, for rivers, forests, lakes, mountains and glaciers.

Wherever you stay in Argentina, you’ll find a wide range of different types of accommodation, from student hostels to the trendiest of boutique hotels, palaces, farms, lake-side lodges and warm and homely bed and breakfasts.

Whatever experience you want, you’re sure to find it here.
