Argentina, optimistically named by the Spanish for the silver reserves that were never found, is a vast country where the true wealth comes from the land itself. This natural landscape is on a huge scale, ranging from sub-tropical jungle and desert canyons to frozen ice-caps. Undoubtedly, one of the natural highlights are the immense waterfalls of Iguazú, which are probably the most dramatic and awe-inspiring on our planet.
Look beyond the big skies, shelving glaciers and never-ending plains of the pampas, and you will encounter a proud people stirred to passion by the tango and a love of fine wines. Buenos Aires, is one of Latin America’s most stylish capitals, fascinating and multi-faceted reflecting a colourful mix of immigrants over the centuries including Italians, English and Welsh.
Argentina’s tourist infrastructure is comprehensive: the accommodation, transport and excursions are of a high standard. There’s a well organised network of national parks for adventure in the open air and the profusion of wildlife is reflects the awesome diversity of this huge land from tropical rainforest, windswept plains and down to the temperate climes of the Patagonian coast.
