Argentina officially the Argentine Republic is a federal republic located in southeastern South America. Sharing the Southern Cone with its smaller neighbour Chile, it is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north; Brazil to the northeast; Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east; Chile to the west and the Drake Passage to the south.

Argentina has top fives tourist attractions including:

  • Andes Mountains

The majestic mountains tower over the landscape forming the backbone of Argentina.  Glaciers defy the laws of gravity and skiing is widely available throughout many of the small rural villages found in this region.

  • Patagonia

There are few places on the Earth that are as isolated and beautiful as Patagonia.  It is one of the best kept secrets of Argentina and the world.  Hosting the self proclaimed “southern most city in the world”, Ushuaia is the gateway to Antarctica (Ushuaia is also a place where tourists can find cheap last minute cruises to Antarctica).

  • Mendoza

This picturesque city in the foothills of the Andes is right in the middle of Argentina’s famous wine country.  Commonly known as Argentina’s Napa and Sonoma valleys, here one can enjoy flavorful wines, fruits, and local delicacies.

  • Iguazu Falls

Taller than Niagara falls and twice as wide, the Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina are one of the most impressive sites that you will ever see in your travels around the world.  275 waterfalls cascade through the Argentinean and Brazilian national parks and once tourists see the Devil’s throat you won’t regret the trip.

  • Bueno Aires

Commonly known as the Paris of the South, it is internationally known for its impressive boulevards, outdoor cafes, and historical facades.  Being such a diverse city, this is usually the first place everyone explores for all the things to do in Argentina.  The cobblestone streets, boutiques, and shops give this city its exquisite old world European charm.
