Argentina is the home of the sultry tango - and also a land of wide open spaces, towering mountains and volcanoes, rain forests, desert, glaciers, and much of legendary Patagonia. Wildlife ranges from penguins to toucans to monkeys. But it is the hospitality of her people that you'll remember most.
Buenos Aires, a cosmopolitan city known for its sophisticated residents - "porteños", its café culture, and the tango. You will find interesting architecture, shopping, handicrafts from the provinces, good theater, music excellent museums. It is easy to see why Buenos Aires is known as “The Paris of South America.”
Perhaps the most unique of the Argentina regions, Patagonia, located in Southern Argentina and covering 1/3 of the total size of the country, is a combination of jagged mountains, rolling hills, lakes and rivers, thick forests, desert, coastline, world famous glaciers, famous ski hills, and a rare and diverse mix of flora and fauna.
On to Chilean Patagonia, filled with glaciers, lakes, fjords, pampas, and huasos (cowboys) herding sheep. Torres del Paine is doubtlessly one of the world’s most beautiful places.
Bolivia, a rewarding country for the resilient, you’ll find extreme landscapes of remote jungle, soaring mountains, and moonlike plains, a stalwart and proud people, remarkably intricate weavings, and a warm welcome. Perhaps the most remarkable feature being the Uyuni Salt Flats.
