ArgentinaAbout Argentina:

Argentina is located in South America, and is the eighth-largest country in the world. Sharing the Southern Cone with its smaller neighbour Chile, it is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north; Brazil to the northeast; Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east; Chile to the west and the Drake Passage to the south.

The name "Argentina" is derived from Latin argentum, a noun associated with the silver mountains legend, widespread among the first European explorers of the La Plata Basin. In the English language, the country was traditionally called "the Argentine", mimicking the typical Spanish usage la Argentina.

 

Climate: Buenos Aires and the Pampas are temperate; cold in the winter, hot and humid in the summer. The deserts of Cuyo, which can reach temperatures of 50°C, are extremely hot and dry in the summer and moderately cold and dry in the winter. Spring and fall often exhibit rapid temperature reversals; several days of extremely hot weather may be followed by several days of cold weather, then back to extremely hot.

SkiTo see in Argentina:

Many ski centres operate in the Andes during the winter; Las Leñas and San Carlos de Bariloche are particularly well-known.

The wine regions of Mendoza and Salta are also very popular tourist destinations, and many tourists are discovering that entering Argentina and using these cities as a base often suits them better than dealing with the bustle of Buenos Aires.

ValleyMendoza is a place where many find it is comfortable to learn or brush up on Spanish before touring South America.

The Traslasierra Valley is a natural geographic region of Córdoba, Argentina, located west of the Big Picks or Hills where Mina Clavero is the capital of tourism and is the most important commercial centre together with the city of Villa Dolores. Among this magnificent mountain range of almost 2800m (9200 ft), several charming villages will welcome you with a great variety of lodgings, restaurants, cultural events and outdoor activities for everyone. The sun shines most of the year inviting you to practice eco-tourism and adventure tourism experiencing a direct contact with nature.
