Things to do in Argentina

Quintessentially Latin, Argentina is home of the tango, and one of the most thrilling ways to experience this is at the Esquina Carlos Gardel Tango show in Buenos Aires. Spend the evening sampling local food and wines and watching this passionate dance.

Other things to do in Argentina that we recommend include visiting the Peninsula Valdes to spot southern right whales, seals, penguins and birdlife. Or, don crampons and trek across the creaking ice of the Perito Moreno Glacier.
