Of all the destinations I love travelling to, Argentina is one of my favorite places to go. There are lots of reasons to travel to Argentina, and here are some of the reasons why I love travelling to Argentina.
Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful and lively cities in Latin America. It is where the tango was born and the city is filled with street dances and plenty of other activities. You simply have to see La Boca for yourself. It is packed with tango clubs and other memorabilia related to tango.
Outside of dance, Buenos Aires has all of the amenities that are to expected in a world-class city. There’s all the food, shopping, clubs, museums, zoos, theaters, and other cultural hotspots you can handle. Soccer is a major deal in Argentina and there’s plenty of it to enjoy in the city.
If you’re a fan of wine – and let’s face it we all are – you’ll probably already know that Argentina has a reputation for being one of the very best wine producers. When you visit Argentina you can take a driving tour of your own, or hop on to one of the many wine tours to enjoy the very best of Argentinian wine.
There aren’t many places in the world that you can go and see the ice glaciers. You could go to the arctic of course, but do you really want to go somewhere that cold? And be stuck there? Argentina has a lot of great places to see the natural beauty of glaciers, but my personal choice is the Los Glaciares National Park. The park offers boat tours, as well as foot tours, where you can see the glaciers for yourself and the wildlife inhabiting them.
Fans of glaciers should also take a trip to the Glaciarium; a museum dedicated to glaciers. There you can see the Perito Moreno glacier or take a trip into the basement and enjoy a bar made entirely out of ice for a true one-of-a-kind experience. The bar is so incredible that you need a special permit to visit and it you’re only allowed to stay for 20 minutes. The good news is the drinks are free!
One of the greatest things about Argentina is the diverse wildlife. Fans of sea life should take a trip to the Valdes Peninsula and see southern right whales along with penguins and other sea mammals and birds. Southern Argentina is also famous for the diving opportunities that allow you to get up close and personal with the sea life and even the occasional sunken wreck.
For something different there is the Ibera Wetlands; the second largest freshwater wetland in the world. It’s filled with a range of species such as capybara, marsh deer, caiman, wildcats, maned wolves, the neotropical otter, and more.
These are just some of the great reasons why I love travelling to Argentina. It’s one of the most beautiful countries in the world, so I’d have to recommend taking a trip there yourself one day.
