This week we visit: Argentina
Argentina is a beautiful and huge country and to really see everything, you’d have to spend years doing nothing else but visiting the various locations in this South American country. As you probably do not have that many vacation days, it is best to concentrate on the most breath-taking sights for your first visit.
Sights like the Perito Moreno Glacier, located in the Los Glaciares National Park, famous for its incredible glaciers that you can see up close and personal. Perito Moreno glacier is 97 sq mi in area and it is actually the third biggest store of fresh water in the world. It goes without saying that it is an incredible sight.
If you like your water liquid and falling down instead of frozen, you will want to head to Iguazú Falls, another natural sight that will blow your mind. There are almost 300 waterfalls there, with the Devil’s Throat being the most famous one by far.
In case you are looking for relaxation and hedonism, it is best to visit the Mendoza Province which is riddled with innumerable vineyards and wineries, all making exceptional wine. You can spend years just visiting them all, enjoying great food and even better wine.
Bariloche is one of the most spectacular places in all of Argentina. If you have ever been to the Alps in Europe, you will feel right at home. The city looks more like something you will find in the Swiss Alps, not only because of the surroundings, but the architecture as well.
Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and you will most likely be arriving to the country via the capital. It is a lively and busy city which also possesses some very peculiar sort of calm. It resembles some European cities and provides a truly cosmopolitan feel.
