5 wonderful reasons to visit Argentina

It is no wonder why Argentina attracts thousands of visitors every year. With its distinct and beautiful geography, interesting history and culture, thriving nightlife, and unique local cuisine, South America’s second largest country is full of surprises and a long list of world-class tourist attractions. If you are trying to make up your mind or are curious about what’s there to see in Argentina, perhaps the following reasons why visit Argentina will leave you wanting to buy your plane tickets right away!

Dazzling landscapes

Argentina is the epitome of diversity; from deserts to glaciers, mountain ranges to dense jungle, its landscapes alone offer something for almost every interest.

In the northern part of the country, you will see more barren, otherworldly settings. On the other hand, in the south, you will find glaciers and Patagonia’s miraculous mountains. During a visit to the country, you can get the opportunity to climb the highest peak in South America.

Anyone who has spent time in Argentina will tell you that even the locals ask themselves what they have done to deserve such a beautiful place to live in.

Plenty of National Parks

Even though Argentina is roughly 11 times the size of the United Kingdom, its population is at roughly 44 million, meaning there’s plenty of wilderness to enjoy.

From north to south, there is a world’s worth of ecosystems contained within the borders of one country: ice fields and fossilized forests, humid wetlands and soaring mountains, plunging waterfalls and desert canyons, subtropical jungles and barren steppes. Its national parks are a wild playground for adventurers.

Out of its 23 provinces, just four do not contain a designated national park. Many of which have also been named as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including: Iguazu National Park, Los Glaciares National Park, Ischigualasto / Talampaya Natural Parks and Los Alerces National Park.

World-class wines

Having a strong Italian heritage it is no wonder Argentina has a well established wine culture. The wine produced in Argentina, like their popular Malbec, can certainly rival that of Europe, North America and Australia.

Much of the credit for such fine wine comes down to the varied climates, or specifically, terroir. This is a combination of environmental factors that affects a crop’s characteristics. As we’ve previously mentioned, you will find many imposing mountain ranges and barren expanses of land in Argentina, meaning these climates produce distinctive tastes and qualities unique to the country.

Take a tour to learn about the wine-making process and enjoy a few samples of the best that Argentina has to offer.

Steaks and cuisine

Argentinians are extremely passionate about food. The country is renowned around the world for the quality of its beef, something you should not miss during your stay.

Argentina has long been one of the world’s largest exporters of beef. The Pampas, a region of fertile lowland plains, is the perfect spot for raising large herds of grass-fed cattle.
This grass feeding process is what makes the meat tastier.

It is also a paradise for those with a sweet tooth given the fact that EVERYTHING is served with some “dulce de leche” either on top or inside.

A wealth of culture

The capital city, Buenos Aires, is recognized as one of the cultural hubs of South America.

The birthplace of Tango has an extremely multicultural identity forged in a melting pot of cultures from native American and colonial Spanish roots, to the influences of immigration from Italy, France, Great Britain, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. This eclectic mix of influences, which can be seen in the city’s architecture, food and in the character of its people, is what makes it a pretty distinct place on the continent.

Argentina is definitely unlike the rest of South America and is by far the best destination in the region for first time visitors.
