Welcome to Argentina. Boasting a rich culture and assorted landscapes, the country occupies most of the southern half of South America and is the world's eighth largest country. Here you will find some of the world's tallest mountains, expansive deserts, and impressive waterfalls, with the diversity of the land ranging from wild, remote areas in southern Patagonia to the bustling metropolis of Buenos Aires in the north. This is one Latin American country where Europeans and North Americans can feel at ease and travel relatively inconspicuously. From sophisticated Buenos Aires where the tango was born, to the remote pristine Patagonia Region, Argentina offers something for every type of visitor. This is where one may dine on what is absolutely the world's best beef, experience the Argentine "Gaucho" (Cowboy) along the rolling, fertile Pampas, rich in agriculture, sheep and cattle-grazing. Heading south you'll find vast wilderness of the Patagonia, home to shimmering lakes, Glaciers and pristine eco-systems.
