COVID-19
We have re-checked every business in this book before publication to ensure that it is still open after the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 will continue to be felt long after the outbreak has been contained, and many businesses, services and events referenced in this guide may experience ongoing restrictions. Some businesses may be temporarily closed, have changed their opening hours and services, or require bookings; some unfortunately could have closed permanently. We suggest you check with venues before visiting for the latest information.
Welcome to Argentina

During the years that I lived in Argentina, and during many visits since, I’ve felt enlivened by this colorful land where dogs wear soccer shirts and septuagenarians dance tango until dawn. It’s a country whose cultural riches are ever present and always accessible; a land of superlatives and such sublime natural wonders it’s almost too much to take in. Life in Argentina can be challenging, but everyday absurdities are met with humor, resilience and kindness.

Argentina’s Top Experiences
1 NATURAL WONDERS
From the mighty Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the thunderous, crackling advance of the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south, Argentina is home to a vast natural wonderland. The country with the Andes’ highest snowbound peaks is also home to rich wetlands, rust-hued desert, deep-blue lakes, lichen-clad Valdivian forests and Patagonia’s arid steppes. In this vast land, stunning sights abound and big adventure awaits.

Iguazú Falls
The Río Iguazú, flowing through the jungle between Argentina and Brazil, plunges suddenly over a basalt cliff in a spectacular display. Iguazú Falls are a primal experience for the senses: the roar, the spray and the sheer volume of water.

Parque Nacional Los Glaciares
Perito Moreno (pictured above) is one of the most dynamic and accessible glaciers on the planet. Its slow but constant motion creates incredible suspense, as building-sized icebergs calve from the face and spectacularly crash into Lago Argentino.

Parque Provincial Aconcagua
The tallest peak in the western hemisphere, Aconcagua is an awe-inspiring sight. If you reach the top (not a task to be taken lightly), you’ll be granted bragging rights as one of a select group who have touched the ‘roof of the Americas.’

2 PORTEñO PASSIONS
Arriving in Buenos Aires is like jumping aboard a moving train. The modern metropolis whizzes by, alive with street life, from sidewalk cafes to parks carpeted in purple jacaranda blooms in springtime. Porteños (people from Buenos Aires) savor public life, whether it’s meeting friends for a steak or a late-night gelato. Passion-fueled activities abound, from dancing tango to chanting and stomping alongside other stadium fanatics at a fútbol (soccer) game.

Tango at a Milonga
Nothing captures the essence of Buenos Aires like the sensual and melancholy tango. To experience the dance in its most authentic form, head to a milonga (a tango club or event).

Football Games
In Buenos Aires, fútbol (soccer) inspires intense passion. The atmosphere is particularly boisterous when Boca Juniors and arch-rivals River Plate face off at La Bombonera stadium (pictured above).

Steak Dinners
Feast at one of the capital’s many parrillas (steakhouses), where waiters carve generous cuts of prime beef. Parrilla s run the gamut from roadside grills to neighborhood joints to upscale restaurants, so there’s a price for every pocket.

Top Experiences
3 Hitting the Trail
Hiking is a fantastic way to experience Argentina’s mesmerizing landscapes. Opportunities abound, from stomping through cactus-filled deserts to scaling mountain peaks to backpacking past deep-blue lakes and through verdant forests. Bariloche is a popular hiking destination, with outstanding day and multiday hikes. Lining Argentina’s western edge like a bumpy spine, the Andes rise to nearly 7000m at Aconcagua’s peak and offer some of the continent’s finest hiking and mountaineering.

Volcán Lanín
Trails at Parque Nacional Lanín include the ascent up the perfect cone of Volcán Lanínis, one of Argentina’s most spectacular trekking challenges.

Torres del Paine
This exceptional Chilean park abuts the Argentine border, with some of the world’s best hiking.

Fitz Roy Range
With rugged wilderness, glaciers and shark-tooth summits, the Fitz Roy Range (pictured above) is the trekking capital of Argentina.
