Argentina is a country full of beautiful cities and amazing people. Its unique landscapes and cultural heritage make it one of the most visited places in the world. Whether it is a tango show on the streets of Buenos Aires, a football match in la Bombonera Stadium, or a show at Colon Theatre, Argentina has a lot to offer! Home to dramatic sceneries, this country is so large that it contains different climates and landscapes. Here’s a list of the most beautiful spots to visit.
The city of Buenos Aires is a huge metropolis full of cultural activities. As the capital city, it is the first place you arrive at when visiting Argentina. Very hot in summer and cold in winter, Buenos Aires offers historical neighborhoods such as San Telmo and La Boca for you to walk around. There are tango shows on the streets, small restaurants with exquisite Argentinian food, and museums. In Palermo, you can visit the 3 de Febrero Park, a huge place with ponds and a botanic garden. In the evening, you can enjoy a musical moment at Teatro Colon, one of the best ones in the world.
Mar del Plata
Once you get tired of the haze of the capital city, you should go to Mar del Plata. This coastal city is 400 km south of Buenos Aires. In summer, you can walk its beautiful coastline and spend some time at the beach. The coast stretches for almost 40 kilometers so, no matter where you go, you are always close to a beach!
Mendoza city is the capital of the province that bears the same name, and it lies 1,189 kilometers from Buenos Aires. It is the Argentinian capital of wine, as most of it is made in there. You can walk through beautiful vineyards, taste wine and even get close to the Cordillera de los Andes in the border between Argentina and Chile.
San Martín de los Andes
The whole Southern provinces of Argentina are unbelievably beautiful. But there is one city that is probably the most breathtaking, San Martin de los Andes in the province of Neuquén. It is famous for being the starting point for all tours to the Lanín National Park and its volcano. The city is surrounded by the Lácar Lake, one of the glacial lakes of the Patagonia. From this city, you can visit Chile and the Cordillera de los Andes, ski on the mountains or embark on the 7 lakes tour through the Patagonia.
Similar to San Martín de los Andes, Bariloche is a snowy city in the province of Neuquén. Here you can visit the bluest lakes and its amazing Nahuel Huapi National Park. It is a very popular tourist destination not only for foreigners but for Argentinians as well. When children graduate from school, they go on a trip to Bariloche, so there are plenty of youngsters around the city. During most of the year, you can go skiing at Cerro Campanario or Cerro Otto. In spring, you can walk around its lake and forests.
Far north from Patagonia lies the province of Misiones, a tropical rainforest that contains the largest waterfalls in the world: the Iguazu Falls. They are one of the seven wonders of the world. Though a third of the falls are on the Brazilian side of the border, the most breathtaking cascades are in the Argentinian side. The most famous drop, “Devil’s Throat” is 80 meters high. Visitors come from all over the world to visit the magnificent falls.
