Argentina Vacation

Argentina is one of South America ‘s most popular destinations, and for good reason. The allure of wine, steak, a vibrant art scene and stunning Patagonian landscapes draws millions of tourists every year.

 

There’s so much to do when you visit Argentina; that’d it’d be impossible to get through it all in one go. Argentina offers a wealth of beautiful, untouched natural landscapes, as well as a chance to visit to Argentina's hip capital city, Buenos Aires. Wine tours in charming Mendoza, where the neighboring mountains of Chile loom large, are an essential visit, as are the epic waterfalls of Iguazu.

Best time of the year to visit Argentina?

Generally speaking, the north of Argentina is much warmer than the rest of the country and the south, in Patagonia, is very cold.  Central Argentina has distinct seasons, particularly around Rio Plata and Buenos Aires. From December to March is summer, when it's extremely hot and most people in the region will take their vacations. March to May and September to November are the ideal times to go since temperatures are far milder. From June to August it can get chilly.

Food and Culture of Argentina

Argentina is famous for its wine and its steaks, and as soon as you try them you'll taste why. Although out in las pampas the steak might be fresher, you'll still get world-beating steak in most restaurants in Buenos Aires and an excellent bottle of wine to boot.

Other staples of the Argentinian diet include their variation pizza and pasta, empanadas, mate and various other meats that are part of the customary (and delicious) asado (barbecue).

The culture itself is very much influenced by European immigration. Argentinians, particularly those from Rio Plata, speak Spanish with a distinct accent that's heavily influenced by Italian (and, to a lesser extent, neighboring Brazil).

Argentina is famed for its contribution to the arts. Literary giants such as  Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortazar are from Argentina, while films such as El Secreto de Sus Ojos relatively recently did the rounds on the international film market.

With respect to music, tango is Argentina's most famous export and in tourist areas of Buenos Aires, for example, you'll find many couples dancing this sensual style. Around Salta you'll hear far more folk music. When it comes to the nightlife, Argentina eschews its tango roots for electro-cumbia, reggaeton, electro and general chart music.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Argentina

Argentina vacations invariably start in the country's capital city, Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires the "Paris of South America", but although this manages to invoke the romantic cafes and vibrant cultural scene, it doesn't manage to do justice to Buenos Aires’s unique charms. This is an exceptionally beautiful city. Areas such as leafy Palermo have charisma by the bucket-load, while the crumbling, rustic streets of San Telmo will surely enchant.


Nearby cities Cordoba and Rosario are also notable and worth a visit. Both are lively areas full of students that offer a great nightlife and good cafes. Rosario is also the city in which Ernesto 'Che' Guavara and Lionel Messi were born, so there's plenty to research there.

To the north of Buenos Aires, on the border of Brazil and Argentina, is Iguazu Falls. There are few places on earth more impressive than these Goliath-like falls that span two countries. The Argentinian side is, according to general opinion, the slightly more impressive side thanks to the proximity to the waterfalls. Be sure to bring a raincoat, you're likely to get splashed.

Heading towards the border of Argentina and Bolivia you'll find Argentina to be much more arid. Here the main jump-off point is Salta, which itself is a charming colonial city. Tours are available from here to the Mountain of Seven Colors and Argentina's famous salt flats in Jujuy.

Mendoza, located on the border of Chile and Argentina, is the country's wine capital and the choice of possible destinations for wine connoisseurs. The city itself is leafy and attractive, but its real appeal is the surrounding countryside where the wineries are located. Huge mountains loom in the distance, making cycling tours of the area an unforgettable experience. You'll be able to visit traditional, bespoke wineries that produce unique wines, as well as large, modern wineries that employ the latest techniques.

Moving south you'll find Patagonia, Argentina's pièce de résistance when it comes to hiking and nature tours. This is a sprawling, beautiful region of mountains, glaciers, lakes, forests and rustic lodges that is in equal parts romantic and thrilling. Bariloche is a good stop off on the way, and one of the most visited cities in Argentina. It's a great place to begin your exploration of the area before you head further south. At the very bottom of the region, South America's most southerly climes, you'll find the Perito Moreno Glacier. This is one of Argentina's most iconic sites, and a must-visit destination.

Argentina Reviews

Dk, May 2018

We just returned from 18 day trip to Argentina. We’ve arrived to Buenos Aires and travelled to El Calafate, then to Salta province, then to Iguazu and back to BA. Lujan made plenty of interesting suggestions, and created an excellent itinerary for us. Despite our time difference, the emails were answered quickly, and our questions and concerns were promptly addressed. Our transfers and excursion pickups were always on time, and generally the quality of the local services and hotels was very good. This was one of our best travels, and we are grateful to Lujan for helping us.

Hotels, drivers, guides, and more were excellent. Gwen did a wonderful job planning and orchestrating our trip. Ranch outside of El Califate was the highlight of our trip. Riding horses at Lake Argentina with snow covered Andes in the background can not be matched

Lujan is amazing, when we first came into contact I was skeptical of giving money to someone ive never met before however now that the trip us over and I reflect back, Lujàn took care of every detail and delivered everything she said she would. As a solo traveller through patagonia who didn't know the language I would call if an issue or misunderstanding arose and she always took care of it. I give her 5 stars.

Thank you, Lujan! Together we were able to customize an individual itinerary perfectly matching my tastes, timing, and finances. Though I have changed my plans more than once, there were no problems in communication whatsoever. As a result this 5-day trip to Iguazu Falls and Patagonia (El Calafate) became a true highlight of my Argentinian vacation. The choice of flights, hotels, tours was excellent. There was not a single problem, it worked amazingly well in every detail! I wish Lujan all the best, and highly recommend her to others.

Being a solo traveler I had researched possible options for organizing accommodation and places to visit in South America and came upon trip.me via the Solo traveler web site. The thing that interested me was the local knowledge, and support of the local industry. Lujan responded to every email I wrote and answered all my inquiries within a few days. Being halfway around the world provided its own challenges to communication. The accommodations B&B style were all of very good to excellent quality each having a unique benefit, eg prompt laundry service in-house or walking distance to town. Lujan provided me with a range of travel experiences air and bus, worked hard to get my accommodation sorted on the W trek in Patagonia as I had left arrangements a little late. When I had a minor meltdown in Puerto Natales being unsure about my bus ticket Lujan phoned my accommodation within half an hour of my email to reassure me.
