Argentina Vacations

Argentina is well-known for its cultural diversity, beautiful nature, varied gastronomy, and vibrant nightlife, making it one of the most popular South American destinations. The country is home to Buenos Aires, known as the "Paris of South America," a tranquil coastline, the sugar-white Andes Mountains, and Mendoza, a rich wine region.

Located in the southern half of South America, Argentina is the world's largest Spanish-speaking country, the second-largest country in South America after Brazil, the fourth-largest country in the Americas, and the world's eighth-largest country.

Its seasons are the opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere due to its Southern Hemisphere location: it is hot and dry in December and January but chilly and wet in August and July.

Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital and a densely populated city known for its art, is home to three million of the country's more than 40 million people. There are large swaths of rolling plains and grasslands scattered throughout the country, home to the country's remaining population.

The vast majority of Argentines are of European descent, primarily of Spanish or Italian ancestry. Rioplatense Spanish is a distinct type of Spanish spoken in the nation. Many Argentinians do not speak English, but you should have little problem getting around in Buenos Aires.

The currency has been the Argentine peso since the 1990s. Changing money, using ATMs, and paying with credit cards are all easy in Buenos Aires. Paying by card may not be possible in rural areas.
