Argentina

Overview

Argentina’s natural appeal is undeniable and astoundingly varied, with rolling mountains giving way to deserts, from the thundering Iguazu Falls to Antarctic Patagonian landscapes. Grasslands feed the cattle that supplies the country’s legendary meat industry, while football, tango and artistic richness steer life in the cities. Argentina is considered by many to be a mix of European and South American cultures, which is nowhere more apparent than in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires, both in its aesthetics and its spirit, where porteños sit at outdoor cafes under the shade of tree-lined boulevards sipping on strong coffee and people watching.
