Buenos Aires: The City

The city of Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina. It is a large metropolis that together with the suburbs has eleven million inhabitants. It is considered the most elegant city of South America. Despite its modern architecture and dynamic activity, it preserves old traditions. History is reflected in its buildings which reveal the various stages in the life of the city. Visitors will enjoy its monuments, churches, museums, art galleries and theatres, colonial neighborhoods, large commercial centers, typical restaurants and international cuisine. Buenos Aires has always been famous for its incredible cultural offer.

The Teatro Colón (Opera House), inaugurated in 1908, is the pride of the city and hosts the most famous artists of national and international opera and ballet. Those who admire pieces of art will find wonderful galleries and art museums where works by Argentine and foreign artists may be enjoyed. An exciting night-life is offered through different amusements, including the well-known local music and dance, the Tango. Late dinner-shows, late cinema and theatres functions, as well as late dining are almost a traditional routine of nightlife lovers. All restaurants and cafes are open till early hours of dawn. All types of international cuisine are available, although the best represented are the country's national dishes, the excellent quality of Argentine meat is famous all over the world.

Argentina: The Country

From a scenic point of view, nature has endowed Argentina with a variety of assortments and beautiful landscapes. Trips to the North include the renowned and spectacular Iguazú Falls and the Provinces of Salta, Jujuy and Tucumán. The province of Mendoza, to the West, is known for its excellent wine production and the Andes Mountains with the Aconcagua peak, the highest in the Americas. The region of la Pampa, the main cattle raising district and the land of the "gauchos", is an immense plain with splendid and comfortable "estancias" where you can enjoy the "asado", the typical barbecue, and a large choice of sports and recreations. Going South, the Patagonia offers multiple attractions such as hiking wooded mountains, skiing resorts, and trout and salmon filled lakes. The most popular locations are Bariloche, San Martín de los Andes, Península de Valdés, Lago Argentino with Perito Moreno Glacier and Ushuaia, the southernmost town in the world.

The landscape changes incessantly: from subtropical forests to extraordinary geological formations like the Mountain of Seven Colours in Jujuy.
