A trip to Argentina gives the visitor an experience of Latin America at its most prestigious and fanciful. An immensely rich country, as its name suggests, and with a diversity that galvanizes the traveler who comes here, with a whirlpool of culture and nature that's quite unique throughout the world. The great metropolises of the North, and the purity of the southern landscapes of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego are worlds apart. The latter, all ice and rough grassland, with a disarming beauty and majesty, are certain to leave a powerful mark on any traveler seeking wide, open spaces. The contrast between North and South can be even more disorienting if we experience the profusion of sophistication in Buenos Aires and the feel it has of a European capital city.
Whether you decide to enjoy the tango dancers and antique shops of the vibrant San Telmo district or choose to stroll along one of its wide avenues with the Spanish influenced facades, the Argentine capital is waiting to take you on a Latin American adventure. This Argentine discovery will take a surreal dimension for the adventurous traveler who chooses to set off on an expedition to the city of San Juan. With its perfect situation at the foot of the Andes, this mountain range, so symbolic of Latin America, is a natural sanctuary that's been frozen for all eternity, and a visit to the province of Mendoza will give you an even better view of it. The boldest will even continue on towards the Aconcagua, the highest peak on the continent. Argentina encompasses great distances and variety, like the province of Santa Fe, in the heart of the famous Pampas. In this green vastness, with its plains and lush meadows of such breathtaking intensity, you'll come across the proud gauchos, those famous Argentine horsemen and an allegory of authentic Argentina.Read more
