    Andrea

    Born in the heart of Buenos Aires, I combine my typical "porteño" urban style with my love of the pampas (grasslands), the “mate” (national infusion) and the horses, being a passionate supporter of the Argentine culture and its traditions. I am a National Tourism Guide and have a Bachelor of Tourism degree from the University of Moron (Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina). For years, I escorted groups of local a...

    After having traveled through many continents and countries I came for a 3 month visit to Argentina. That one trip turned out into a life changing experience; I felt a special 'click' with the country and its people I hadn't experienced elsewhere. Soon after, I decided to try to build a living in Argentina, and that was now 12 years ago. The first years I completely immersed myself into the Argentine culture ...

Things to do on Argentina Vacations

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.

 

The stunning falls of Iguazu, Argentina

Iguazu Falls

 

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.

 

So What's Argentina all about?

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.

 

When to go to Argentina

What time of the year is best for Argentina Vacations?

 

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.
