Argentina is sometimes oversimplified as ‘European’ South America. The capital, Buenos Aires, has a Parisian flair, visible in its airy boulevards and cafe culture. Yet wander into a local milonga (tango hall) in one of the lesser-visited districts, and you’ll know you couldn’t possibly be anywhere else. You’ll see couples of all ages participate in this haunting dance. Meanwhile, on stretches of windswept pampas, gauchos rally their livestock in much the same way as they have since the 19th century. This country’s traditions are its lifeblood.
Our South America specialists will suggest Argentina attractions that match your interests, helping you make the most of your trip. They can tell you where to find the best Mendoza vintages, what to do in Argentina’s Patagonia, such as hiking in El Chaltén, or how to view the Iguazu Falls.
