Often considered the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires, Argentina, is a bustling cosmopolitan city brimming with stunning architecture, intimate sidewalk cafes, and trendy neighborhoods. The birthplace of Tango, like the dance itself, is captivating, seductive, and bursting with frenetic energy. Whether you’re walking among the headstones in the Recoleta Cemetery (Cementerio de la Recoleta), the resting place of Eva Peron, or bicycling through the colorful cobblestone streets of La Boca, the distinctly European feel of this metropolis is undeniable. No visit to Buenos Aires would be complete without visiting one of the cities renowned parrillas (steakhouses). Steak not your thing? Follow your nose to one of the hundreds of kiosks pushing out fresh baked empanadas and alfajores by the dozens. Still have room? Do not miss the opportunity to taste some of the worlds best ice cream at a local heladeria before a night out on the town or an evening of tango in the milongas.
Argentine Patagonia is an adventure enthusiast’s path to the end of the world. South America’s most iconic national parks and natural monuments reside in the Austral Andes near the Chilean border. Los Glaciares National Park, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, is the icy embodiment of the region’s rugged and dynamic ecosystem. From the park’s northern extremes, El Chalten and the precipitous Mt. Fitz Roy to the zoetic ebb and flow of the Perito Moreno Glacier in the south, Patagonia’s potential for adventure is limitless.
Patagonia still not far enough off the beaten path? Step to the edge of the continent with a visit to Tierra Del Fuego, home to the southernmost city in the world. Ushuaia, Argentina is the jump spot for your adventure to the “White Continent,” Antarctica.

Experience an incredible diversity of bird life and the raw, turbulent beauty of Iguazu Falls and Garganta Del Diablo, a system of two hundred and seventy-five spectacular cataracts dropping more than 350 feet into the boiling river below.
