Best Places to Visit in Argentina

Argentina's diversified geography includes everything from severe deserts to tropical jungles, as well as large stretches of ocean coastline and the rising Andes. Argentina's cultural, artistic, and architectural heritage is diverse, ranging from the subtropical north to the subantarctic regions of beautiful Patagonia in the south, and drawing on influences from all over the world.

Buenos Aires, with its great barrios, such as colorful arts quarters like La Boca, old-world Recoleta, and trendy districts like Palermo, feels more like Europe than Latin America at times. This vibrant capital city is the ideal spot to start exploring (and the best place to learn to tango, Argentina's most famous dance).

Aside from its many cultural attractions, the country's natural treasures, such as the stunning Iguaz Falls, the world's largest series of waterfalls, are also huge pulls - and for some travelers, the most appealing.
