Argentina


Argentina, land of tango and Gardelīs cradle

Argentina is one of the eight largest countries in the world with more than 2.5  million square kilometers to tour and discover. Its capital; Buenos Aires,  main tourist destination in South America, is the home of the music of Gardel, the literature of Borges, and the sensual tango. The rest of Argentina is also very attractive and interesting to visit. The so-called "interior of Argentina", zones that surround the capital, provides diverse climates with a large variety of natural regions.  

Argentina consists of eight well-defined regions. 

Valley of the MoonThe northwest, is a vast region that is characterized by its arid landscape, desolate plateaus, "yellow-leaf" forests, adobe pueblos, folklore, cordial people and an indigenous ambience that in some ways remembers Ecuador or Peru. Here we find the famous Tren de las Nubes (Train of the Clouds), that tours the northern part of the Andes mountain chain, reaching heights of 4,200 m (13,775 ft) above sea-level. The principal starting point for touring this region is  Salta.
Argentina

The Cuyo region, located at the foot of the Andes is one of the most dynamic and stable regions of Argentina due to its agricultural riches and its energetic resources. The high peaks overlook the region and the beautiful national parks dominate the land. National parks include Tupungato Volcano Provincial Park and especially the Aconcagua Provincial Park where one finds the Cerro Aconcagua (Aconcagua Mountain), known as the "Roof of South America". This region's capital is Mendoza, one of the largest wine-making regions in the world.
Iguazu Falls
Chaco is a region that touches Bolivia and Paraguay. Its distinctive trait is that of a massive, internal basin in which the currents of water that descend from the snow-capped mountains are lost. It is here that the combined elements create the  Iguazu Falls, the magnificent waterfalls that give Iguazú National Park its name.

The subtropical region of Mesopotamia is encircled by the Parana, Uruguay, and Iguazu rivers. The region possesses a variety of vegetation such as corridor-like jungles that follow the course of the rivers, tiny wooded islands, and grassy plains. Colón and the Palmar National Park are located here.

Buenos AiresThe Pampa is an immense, herbaceous plain primarily tree-less and muddy. It embraces the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, La Pampa and part of Cordoba. Of course, here is where the capital of Buenos Aires is located, one of the most important tourist destinations in Argentina and of South America.

The Patagonia Argentina (shared with Chile) is comprised of the provinces of Neuquén, Río Negro (Black River), Chubut, Santa Cruz and the Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire). It is divided into the Andean Patagonia and Antarctica. The Andean sector is characterized by its cold climate, with abundant precipitation, and vegetation with dense forests of araucarian, cypress, larch, lenga, coigüe (evergreen) trees, etc. Places to visit include the city of Esquel and the Alerce National Park, the Glacier Perito Moreno which is found in the Glaciers National Park, and one of the favorite destinations of Chilean tourists during the winter,  San Carlos de Bariloche and la Ruta de los 7 Lagos (Route of the 7 Lakes).

The Patagonia Antarctica or extra Andean, different from the Andean region, has characteristics such as staircase-like ascending  plateaus between 700 and 1,000 meters (2,295 and 3,280 ft) high, sierras with an average height of 1,000 m (3,280 ft), and fluvial valleys that cut across the region from west to east. Its climate is cold, arid, and windy, with cold average temperatures that become more frigid the further south you go. Located in this region are the Peninsula of Valdés, Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia
