Argentina holiday ideas accommodation places to go when to visit argentina map


Argentina is named after the silver that so impressed the first Spanish conquistadors who arrived in the early 16 th century. It’s a country of contrasting landscapes: snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes, tropical jungle, winelands, pampas lowlands, and is the second largest country in Latin America.

The capital, Buenos Aires, is a buzzing, multicultural city, a balance of old and new, sometimes called the Paris of South America. At its heart, historic San Telmo is one of the oldest districts, popular with locals and visitors alike with its busy cafes and bars, cobblestoned streets, antique shops, imposing mansions and live music. There is a thriving arts culture. The Rio de la Pata is considered the birthplace of tango, there are numerous annual music festivals, theatre is popular with over 280 venues including the Teatro Colon opera house, and there is a lively street art scene.  

The country’s main attractions include Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian border, the photogenic Lake District which is perfect walking territory, the vast wilderness of Patagonia, the mountains, glaciers and waterfalls of Tierra del Fuego National Park, and the southernmost town Ushuaia, departure port for Antarctic cruises.

Argentina can be visited all year, though different regions have their own best times. Patagonia in the south is most easily visited in summer from December to March. Whales are best seen off Peninsula Valdes in October and November. The Lake District is wonderful from spring to autumn. The waters of Iguazu Falls are at their peak after rainfall, usually in April.
