Argentina Transportation
The busiest airport in Argentina is Buenos Aires, but there are other airports as well. The large distances make air travel the fastest way to reach distant destinations. The once extensive railway network of Argentina has been greatly reduced, but there is a fast and comfortable bus network. Argentina has a wide network of roads and motorways. There are toll roads where you must pay as you drive through toll booths.

History of Argentina
The first permanent Spanish settlement in Argentina was established in 1580. The power was seized by a junta in 1810 and independence from Spain was formally declared in 1816. It was followed by a long period of civil wars. An era of economic growth began in the 1880's and lasted for several decades. A series of military coups followed one another until 1983 when the democracy was restored.
