LOCATION, EXPLORING AND SIGHTSEEING:

The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. From the northern deserts to the southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia, Argentina's geography is varied and stunning. Argentina is geared up to thrill - from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the grasslands of the Pampas.

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night.

  • This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European feel about it.
  • BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.
  • Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity.
  • Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare!
  • Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.
