Argentina Travel

Often regarded as the Europe of South America, Argentina is brimming with sophistication, adventure, and diverse culture. However, the population of Argentina is mostly comprised of Italian, Northern European, and Spanish descent. Post World War II, Argentina acquired a very large Jewish community, making its population one of the largest after Tel Aviv. This is a country of many contrasts. Here, you will find sophisticated cities like Buenos Aires, Andean cities like Salta, Jujuy, or Pampas, and glaciers like Calafate. For food and wine enthusiasts, Argentina is a force to be reckoned with, pairing some of the best beef and wine imaginable.

Buenos Aires: Buenos Aires is the Capital of Argentina and is frequently referred to as the Paris of Latin America. True to its name, it possesses the best Opera House in South America. Buenos Aires is home to some of the most world renowned artists, museums, palaces (some have now become hotels), and great night clubs where you can dance the night away. Most are unaware that Buenos Aires is the birthplace of the Tango, which appeared around the same time that European immigration took place in the “conventillos” (tenement houses). The outskirts of Buenos Aires possess Estancias (a sophisticated Dude Ranch), where you can enjoy horseback riding and the best outdoor BBQ’s in town. Accompanied by folklore music and showmanship by the local “gauchos” or cowboys, Estancias should be on your “must see” list.

Iguazu: Iguazu and its sister park, Iguacu in Brazil, are the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Pictures could never live up to its grandeur of the awe-inspiring waterfalls. Iguazu is part of a national park that is home to over 400 bird species, accompanied by giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and Caimans. To get the full experience, you have to stay around three nights in places like Yacutinga Lodge, which is approximately three hours by boat from Iguazu 

Mendoza:Located northwest of Buenos Aires on the Andes range, Mendoza is home of the highest mountain in South America. Attracting hikers and world renowned mountain climbers, Mendoza is known for its wine production, wine tasting, hiking, trekking, zip lining, and wall climbing. The city of Mendoza has a charm of its own with its colonial architecture. The best time to visit is April and May, during the peak of the wine festivals.

Tucuman, Salta, and Jujuy: Located in the northern portion of Argentina, this region is known for pre-Columbian archeology, dating back to the colonization era. They are high plateaus with a variety of mountains and gorges, covered with huge cactuses. You will enjoy full contrast from high peaks, salt flats, and subtropical rain forests. The north is full of surprises and varies greatly from the rest of Argentina.

The Patagonia: Noted for its intense hiking and rugged beauty, the Patagonia boasts both green alpine meadows and glacial fields stretching for miles. Located in the southern portion of the country where weather and travel thrive in the summer seasons. Spanning the lower portions of Argentina and Chile, Patagonia beings on the province of Rio Negro and extends to the Tierra del Fuego. 

Bariloche: This is the door to the Patagonia area, which starts in Bariloche and ends in Ushuaia. The lake region, which it is also known for, is an area for fly fishing during the summer (Nov-March) and skiing during the winter (June-September). It is an all year round resort, which often attracts sports lovers with its beautiful scenery and a cross way through the lakes to Chile.   

El Calafate:  Situated in the heart of the Patagonia, Calafate is famous for its Glaciers, Perito Moreno, Upsala, and much more. These are some of the largest moving glaciers in the southern cone and also the doorway to Chilean Patagonia, Torres del Paine (Paine Towers). The season to enjoy Calafate is the summer (November through April), in which the following months tend to be very cold.

Trelew: Situated on the eastern and southern coast of Argentina, Trelew is well known for its Magellan penguins, sea lions, and whales. The season attracting most visitors is October through early December, although you can always visit and see other species during their summer (November through April).

Ushuaia: The southernmost city in the world, and is also known as Tierra del Fuego. It serves as the port city for all the Antarctic cruises, combining sea, mountains, and forest all at the same time. Ushuaia is also the last crossing available to Chile, either by sea on one of the cruises via Cape Horn, or by land to Punta Arenas in Chile.
