Argentina is considered a country of contradictions because of the Patagonian glaciers in the south and the tropical rainforests in the north. It has the world’s greatest waterfall, as well as an interesting desert and country sides filled with wineries. Buenos Aires is still the major place to visit in Argentina. The European atmosphere and the local culture bring a sense mystery and suspense to mind, as well as excitement. The bars and restaurants in Palermo and the Milonga tango dance hall are important local places that must be experienced. The city is called the “Paris of South America” for a reason and it never disappoints its guests.

The Glaciers National park in the south is worth the adventure. The Perito Moreno glacier is the park’s number one attraction, because it’s one of a kind. The park is also the home of Mount Fitzroy, which is one of the Andes most incredible expressions with its unique rock cliff face and incredible sheerness. The Iguazu waterfalls in the tropical north is the world’s largest. It drops off volcanic cliffs and is creating by several rainforest rivers that merge in this enormous display of power. One of the most rugged landscapes in Argentina is found in the northwest. Salta and Jujuy has high plains, Llamas herds and green valleys and is well worth the visit. Everyone should consider visiting costal Patagonia. It has one of the world’s richest underwater ecosystems, especially around the Puerto Madryn Peninsula. Whales give birth and care for their young in the spring and the winter around the peninsula and in summer and fall the water around the peninsula is filled with dolphins, seals, sea lions and penguins.
