Argentina is an enormous country, the eighth largest country in the world. Today it offers economic and political stability, excellent hotel and gourmet industry, and an efficient, modern airport and air/land communications system. Ranging from subtropical forests in the north, to the icy Antarctica to the southernmost point on the continent, Argentina's geography offers diverse year-round travel opportunities. From some of the world's tallest mountains and impressive waterfalls, to wide-open pampas and ancient forests, the beauty and variety promise something truly special for everyone.
Due to its geographical, natural and cultural diversity, Argentina is known as the land of the six continents: the fertile central region of the Pampas, marshy northeast Mesopotamia, densely forested Chaco northern region, high northwest plateaus, the mighty western Andes, and stunningly beautiful windswept plateaus of Patagonia. In addition, the south of Argentina is a popular destination spot and gateway for exploring the Straits of Magellan and Antarctica. These diverse regions make for unforgettable adventures.
Countless possibilities abound: from sunny world-class beaches to ancient glaciers; bucolic river valleys to the gigantic, ice-capped southern Andes mountains; from archeological sites, small Indian villages, colonial towns and Jesuit missions to vibrant, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires; from outstanding wineries to gaucho traditions and impressive ranches; from Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas, to Iguazu Falls, one of the world's most impressive waterfalls; high seas fishing and sailing regattas to some of the best skiing in the world. Golfers, hikers, bikers, fishermen, whitewater rafters, adventure sports enthusiasts, mountain trekkers, sightseers, shoppers, food aficionados, nature and city lovers alike will all appreciate Argentina.
While the natural beauty of Argentina is breathtaking, its cities, culture, and people also make the country a great place to visit and also truly unique. It has deep cultural ties to Europe, which is especially apparent in Buenos Aires with its broad avenues, excellent museums, great theater, world-class restaurants, and pulsating nightlife. The multinational peoples of Buenos Aires have created a complex, energetic, and seductive port city that offers an urban lifestyle and architecture that are markedly more European than any other in South America. Yet the city is neighborhood- or barrio-centered — composed of many smaller districts, intimate details, events and interactions — each with a slightly different color, shape, and character.
