Argentina stretches south from Bolivia and Paraguay – a long, sprawling country boasting a smorgasbord of landscapes from the towering snowy peaks of the Andes and fertile plains of Patagonia, to the verdant basins of tropical forest and miles of rustic urban sprawl.
Buenos Aires will catch you off guard – it’s so European! Blessed with boutique shops and aromatic steak restaurants (you have to try the steak here), the capital city will delight you time and again. But don’t worry if cities aren’t your thing; Argentina boasts myriad natural attractions such as the breath-taking Iguazu Falls and historical sites including ancient ruins and forgotten cities.
Despite the hardships of the past, Argentina’s people are surprisingly open and friendly, although don’t be surprised if they are also brutally honest – political correctness hasn’t quite caught on here just yet.
