Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. It is located on the southern shore of the Rio de la Plata.
Argentina spans a massive 2,263 miles (3,650km) from north to south, giving the narrow country a huge variety of landscapes and attractions ranging from the desert cattle ranges of the Pampas in the north to the glaciers and penguin colonies of Tierra del Fuego in the south.
In between those extremes lies the sultry heart of Argentina, Buenos Aires. The birthplace of the tango, Buenos Aires is a fascinating city of history and culture and is overflowing with amazing restaurants, theatres, nightclubs and dance halls. Two hundred and thirty miles (400km) south of Buenos Aires lies Argentina's most popular beach resort, Mar del Plata, which attracts around three million local tourists every summer.
Many of Argentina's most popular attractions are not in the cities however, but spread across its verdant landscape. The famous Iguazú Falls, voted one of the natural wonders of the world in 2011, draw tourists from all over the globe, as do the excellent vineyards of the wine region in Mendoza, and the popular ski resorts Bariloche and Las Lenas
Argentina is a patchwork made up of colourful panoramas and even more colourful people. A hugely popular tourist destination in South America, a holiday in Argentina is an adventure likely never to be forgotten.
