Argentina is a big country, about one third the size of the continental US. Its regions each have their own distinct culture, geography and special attractions.
In planning your trip to Argentina, consider that the country has within its borders a rain forest, Andean cordillera, a spectacular wine region, desert sierras, beaches, giant glaciers, and mountain lakes. The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, the site of Magellan’s voyage in the 16th century is a wonderment all to itself. Iguazu Falls, a natural wonder of the world competes for visitors’ attention with the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of three Patagonia glaciers that is not retreating.
