Exploring Argentina
Argentina is located on the southern tip of South America and offers tourists a wide variety of travel destinations. Argentina is home to an amazing geographical landscape including glaciers, rainforests, mountains and cities that offer infinite opportunities for exploration and adventure.

If you decide to explore Argentina you should bring a selection of clothing that will work in both warn and cool climates. If you are planning to hike or ski in the Andes you will need warm clothing but if you are planning to visit the tropical lowlands you may wish to just pack a few warmer items for the cool nights.

Argentina boasts the tallest mountain peak in the Americas; Cerro Aconcagua which stands at 6,960 meters above sea level. Whether you want to hike the Andes in Patagonia or go skiing it makes no difference. The country provides the perfect setting for a vacation full of activities.

Mountain resorts are available for skiers and hikers alike and mountain resorts are spread throughout the Andes so you can choose the resort that suits your needs best easily. If you choose to hike in a non-resort area make sure you have a guide to show you the ropes of hiking in the Andes since it is easy to get lost or trapped in unsafe conditions.

If you are in the mood for city life Buenos Aires is a fabulous city to spend your vacation in. Buenos Aires is a modern city that offers shopping, cultural events and historical museums that offer a look into life in Argentina. Buenos Aires has a population of over 10 million people and has a warm, rainy climate. The main language spoken in Buenos Aires is Spanish a language that many of us are familiar with.

Buenos Aires is also home to the Colon Theatre which is world famous for the music performances that take place there. The Colon Theatre presents all different types of music including orchestra performances and opera. You may also visit botanical gardens, zoos and parks that are known around the world for their beauty.

No trip to Argentina is complete without a visit to the Los Glaciares National Park located in the Santa Cruz province. You can hike on the glacier on a guided tour as well as view the glacier from a boat that gives you a greater understanding of how enormous the glacier really is. The Los Glaciares National Park is also home to many birds, animals and plants that set Argentina apart from other travel destinations.
