A blend of Europe and Latin American culture and heritage is what you get to witness in Buenos Aires.

The cuisine is as diverse as the place itself. Indulge the foodie in you to savor the sumptuous tastes. Argentina also offers a distinct and beautiful geography, interesting history and culture, thriving nightlife, unique local flavors, endless shopping opportunities, and much more. The country attracts thousands of visitors every year, here are a few reasons you should be one:
If you are into wine tasting then you must try some Argentine Wine. It is a rare and special treat to drink a glass of wine in the same city its grape was grown. Argentina is the fifth largest wine producing country by volume, so these opportunities abound. You can enjoy Salta’s aromatic Torrontes and classic Cabernet Sauvignons in the north or a meaty Mendoza Malbec in the central region of the country. There are many Argentina wineries that offer exceptional wine tours.
Iguazu Falls is a sight to see. The falls were established in 1984 as Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Along with Nahuel Huapi National Park in Patagonia, Iguazu Falls is one of the most frequented tourist sites in Argentina, and for good reason. Visitors can enjoy the awe inspiring views of the falls along with tours, treks, and water sports at their base.
Beautiful boutique shops line the streets of Palermo Soho, a hub of the relentlessly creative design district in Buenos Aires. Be prepared for long strolls interrupted by halting stops to gawk at window designs just this side of fine art. Be prepared to gawk a bit at the price tags, too, as these aren’t post-collapse prices. However the amazing shoes and belts, chic skirts and dresses, glittery custom jewelry, and stylish jeans make for a fashionable entrance for similar prices you’d find in a US mall.
Enjoying the culture and festivities is another great reason to visit Argentina! A country that is never shy to celebrate, Argentina has many a wonderful festivals. Buenos Aires is a host to festivals all throughout the year including the “The Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Film (BAFICI)”, “Fashion Buenos Aires” which celebrates fashion in a week-long event twice a year, “La Rural” the nation’s two-week farm fair and gaucho festival, a gay pride parade, as well as festivals celebrating art, music, tango and more. JuJuy celebrates the “Semana de Jujuy” when the quaint city bursts to life for a week of partying to celebrate its founding.
Argentina is one of the most popular countries to visit in South America and for good reason. It offers limitless opportunities for exploration–from trekking in the Patagonian Andes, sipping coffee on a sidewalk cafe in Buenos Aires, whale watching on the coast, indulging in Argentine beef and wine, to basking in the mists of Iguazu Falls. There is truly something for everyone to enjoy in Argentina.
