Argentina Travel Guide

Use this online Argentina travel guide to plan your trip to the land of waterfalls, glaciers, tango and Tierra del Fuego. Buenos Aires is like a modern European city: life races past grand baroque buildings, hip bars and chic boutiques, but step into a milonga and the mysterious rituals of tango belong to a previous century. At one end of Argentina the mighty Iguazú Falls thunder through lush jungle, while at the other extreme, silent glaciers stretch out endlessly in Patagonia. The serene Beagle Channel meets Argentina's most southerly city, the windy and rugges Ushuaia, a jumping off point for the wilds of Antarctica.
