You’re about to embark on a travel adventure to “the land of silver”. Discover the cultural and natural richness of the southernmost country in South America in this Argentina travel guide. Live a close encounter with people and nature in Iguazú and Patagonia.
Argentina is one of the southernmost countries in the world. Located in South America, its populations arise up to more than 40.000.000 people whose mother tongue is Spanish in its Argentinian version (with a slight difference in pronunciation and words from Spain). Is the second largest country in the region after Brazil (in its territory France could be fit 3 times!), and all kinds of weather and natural landscapes can be found all over the country.
From the sophisticated Buenos Aires and its tango and soccer culture to the vastness of the Pampas, the multicolored mountains and Falls of the North to mighty Patagonia and its glacier, the Argentina vacation is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Argentina was born as an independent country in 1810 and was named after the Latin word argentum, which means “silver”, the color of the Río de La Plata which can be seen in Buenos Aires. It has 24 provinces and its currency is the peso argentino. We invite you to read our Argentina travel guide!
