Argentina is a vast, culturally rich country, from the northern deserts to the mountain-spiked fin del mundo (end of the world). The country has emerged from its 2001 economic crisis an “it-list” destination thanks to its abundant natural beauty, succulent cuisine, and innovative design.

Argentina Cities and Regions

Bariloche

Argentina’s premier ski destination, by mid-June, temperatures here have dropped to around 30 degrees, perfect for maintaining a cover of snow on Cerro Catedral Mountain. Besides the fact that conditions include over 42 miles of trails and lift tickets are cheap – we’re talking from as little as $25 for adults – snow bunnies who make the trek down south can revel in the vast of array of nightlife, dining, outdoor activities, and casino action that have made Bariloche the second-most-visited destination in Argentina.

Buenos Aires

Centuries of tango, an avant-garde art scene and European flair flavor this cosmopolitan capital. Unique neighborhoods and a lively café culture and nightlife add to its zest. See our Buenos Aires Travel Guide

The Pampas

Argentina’s famous beef hails from these grassy plains stretching east from the heartland to the beach-resort-heavy Atlantic coast (hint: Mar del Plata is the hippest sand-spot).

Cordoba

From the UNESCO-recognized Manzana Jesuítica (Jesuit Square), contemplate the church’s architectural and educational influence on this colonial-era capital (Argentina’s second largest city), then commune with nature in the nearby Sierras.

Ushuaia

Perched against a mountainous backdrop with picturesque bay views, the world’s southernmost city is the jumping-off point for trips to Antarctica and penguin tours through the Beagle Channel.

Patagonia

This rugged, windswept expanse awes with its desolate Wild West feel, blue-tinged glaciers, snow-capped Andean peaks, petrified forests, exotic wildlife, and Welsh-inspired teahouses.

Lake District

Amid the mountain scenery and glistening glacial lakes, hiking, skiing, and fly-fishing opportunities make this alluring region Argentina’s year-round playground.

Mendoza

Nestled in the arid Andean foothills, in the shadow of mighty Aconcagua, this leafy, canal-lined wine capital with Class V river rapids draws white-water-rafting enthusiasts and oenophiles.

Northwest Provinces

From sun-baked salt flats to subtropical jungles, this region has the most diverse terrain, as well as pre-Columbian settlements, colonial architecture, and the site where Argentina’s independence was declared.

Northeast Provinces

Delve into 17th-century Jesuit ruins, shake your booty during Argentina’s carnival celebrations, or stare into the Devil’s Throat at Iguazu Falls on the Brazil/Paraguay border. See our Iguazu Falls Travel Guide.
