The stylish home of tango, Evita, Maradona and much more. This cosmopolitan city is a must-see for anyone planning an Argentina tour and, as it is the gateway city for international flights, there is no excuse to miss it.
Visit La Bombonera, the home of Boca Juniors soccer club, where the great player Maradona made his mark. If you can go when one of the super-clasico games (vs River Plate) are on, it is truly a memorable experience, even for people who don’t like sports!
Combine this with a visit to the Bohemian district of Boca, with its very colourful wooden houses, and sit in a café watching street performers.
Take a city tour, visiting some of the historic building and districts; and in the evening enjoy a tango show to get a full flavour of this city in one of its renovated theatres. Originating in the brothels set up by immigrants from Europe, this sultry dance performance makes for a spectacular night out and a great meal, often involving huge steaks.
Spanning three kilometers, this complex of 275 falls are another must-see for any lover of natural wonders, and will truly take your breath away, especially if you take the boat ride on the river below the Falls.
You could stay in the town of Puerto Iguazu in Argentina, or even pop across the border for a day on the Brazilian side at Foz do Iguazu. Find out about the difference between the two sides here. The area around the Falls is sub-tropical jungle, and home to a large amount of wildlife, so there is plenty to keep you busy. Why not make it part of a Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu and Machu Picchu tour?
This vast southern tip of the Continent is split between Argentina and Chile is a land set far apart from Buenos Aires and Iguazu. A beautiful, desolate landscape, wide open horizons and roads that stretch on forever. An absolute must for lovers of the outdoors, trekking, biking, and camping (although you are able to enjoy the region from some excellent hotels, too, if tents are not your thing).
The glaciated areas of Mount Fitzroy and the Torres del Paine (Chile) parks are the biggest draws for hikers in the area and very popular with people on an Argentina tour.
Patagonia is also home to some of the greatest trout and salmon fishing in the world. There are endless opportunities for adventure sports; and it is of course the gateway to Antarctica. Cruise ships leave to explore the ice caps from Ushuaia, and there are a whole range of tour options available to go and see some amazing wildlife. The North of Patagonia is also very beautiful, with the area around Bariloche and San Martin de Los Andes being especially nice with its endless lakes and forests.
Argentine wines are world-famous, and this laid-back city is the heart of the wine-growing region It makes an excellent base from which to explore the dozens of vineyards in the area.
You could choose to stay on the vineyard itself, in one of the many high-end boutique hotels, eating with the vines all around you, while enjoying endless tasting sessions.
You can take full day tours from the city, which visit a number of different vineyards, so that a whole range of producers can be enjoyed. The city itself has dozens of open-air cafes to enjoy people-watching. Outdoor sports such a cycling and zip lining are available too.
Awarded Cultural Capital of the Americas in 2006, this is a vibrant city with great museums and an old historic quarter to enjoy. And thanks to having the oldest university in Argentina, you are guaranteed some excellent nightlife. Just beware it starts and ends very late.
The countryside around Cordoba is also beautiful, rolling hills with small quaint villages such as Villa General Belgrano, which makes you think you are in the Austrian Alps.
If you like golf, this is a great place to play; and why not visit the childhood home of Che Guevara while you are in the region?
