Argentina Travel Posted on 03/09/2016

Argentina is a country with all sorts of incentives: its delicious and varied gastronomy, a homely and amusing atmosphere, stunning landscapes, and endless activities… they all make it a perfect place for tourists who want to “exploit” a place to its fullest. But perhaps one of the characteristics that make this Latin American nation so appealing is its natural and cultural heritage.

The culture is beautifully exemplified in its art scene, from museums to theatres to galleries to concerts, while natural wonders can be found in any of its 23 provinces. The artistic community in Argentina is thriving. Here is a selection of 4 of Argentina’s most beautiful places to fulfill your artistic itch:

1. Iguazú National Park

Be ready to marvel at nature’s power. Iguazú Falls was named one of the 7 natural wonders of the world by UNESCO, and once you meet them you will agree! Indeed one of Argentina’s most beautiful places for art lovers of natural landscapes pics.

Walk through the walkways to discover inner cascades, falls, and water jumps, to finally get to the main attraction: Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat). This National Park is unlike any other on Earth. Explore the magical rainforest that surrounds it, and have your camera ready: Tucans and colorful butterflies are ready to strike a pose!


2. Salta

In the northwest of the country hides a city that deserves its nickname without a doubt: Salta, “La Linda” (The Beautiful). An endless number of varied museums, theatres, cinemas and concerts, lovely colonial houses, and historic sites of outstanding architecture can be found in every corner of this beautiful capital of the province. 

But perhaps the cherry on top of this northwest land is its Salt Flats. A breathtaking infinite white shiny field made of salt qualifies as a one-of-a-kind shot, art lovers! Blue sky, and white salty ground, sound like one of the many Argentina beautiful places.
