What to see in Argentina

Argentina Attractions


From the colourful and bustling barrios of Buenos Aires to the breathtaking Andes Mountain Range in north, Argentina has no shortage of sightseeing opportunities. Boasting a plethora of different habitats and environments to explore, it would take visitors a good few months to explore everything this South American gem has to offer.

The northern regions of the country offer an exciting blend of colonial heritage, natural beauty and an indigenous flavour while the spectacular Iguazu Falls in the Iguazu National Park, surrounded by lush green Brazilian forest are a must see. Enjoy a day of wine tasting in Mendoza, or head west towards the Chilean border and marvel at the Andes Mountain Range. The curious mix of desert, snow-capped mountains, sandy beaches and majestic glaciers in the Patagonia region is fantastic and the world's southern-most city, Ushuaia, is nestled on the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, a departure point for those keen on a trip to Antarctica and also offering some of the best brown trout fishing in the world.

The sights and sounds of Buenos Aires are a major draw for many. Stroll along the tree-lined parks and boulevards, visit Evita Peron's grave at La Recoleta Cemetery, explore La Boca, the city's most popular barrio, and take in the Latin American flair by enjoying a romantic night of tango. Bus is the most cost effective way to navigate this impressive country and domestic flights are available at affordable prices. Taxis are quick and cheap in the city. The best time of year to visit Argentina is during the autumn months from March to June when the weather is a little cooler.

With so much to see and so little time, it's best you get packing and head off to Argentina for the adventure of a lifetime!
