Things to Do in Argentina

Anywhere one goes in the world, he or she will find a multitude of sites and activities to do. Argentina is one of the biggest countries in the world that is said to be the "land of six continents" all in one. The best idea may be to devote a vacation to each region in order to enjoy the most of it.   You can travel from deep in the rainforest taking pictures of exotic animals and plants, to watching opera in at the Buenos Aires--the capital of Argentina, to the beach to soak up the rays of the sun, or to the mountainous region of the south in Patagonia where glaciers share their overpowering presence. The question isn't what you can see, but do you have enough vacation time to see it.

Explore Buenos Aires

There is much to see here in this metropolis for cosmopolitans. Take a walk through the center of the city through Plaza de Mayo to familiarize yourself with the city and its history where many historical events took place.

Shop SanTelmo

Head over to San Telmo in Buenos Aires to shop amongst vibrant colors, exotic boutiques and cobble stone streets. If your feet still have energy, then take off your walking shoes and put on your dancing shoes to enjoy the vibrant life of the tango. Or if you just want to rest, relax at one of the world's best opera houses named Teatro Colon.

La Recoleta

Other places you may enjoy are the La Recoleta, a famous Argentina cemetery where aristocracy and military officials are buried including Juan Peron, several presidents and wealthy characters. You'll find this famous cemetery in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires.

Iguazu Falls

After the hustle and bustle of the city, you may venture out to greener pastures to Iguazu Falls, which is taller and much wider than the Niagara Falls. It is truly a natural wonder. Take one of the many tours and explore about two and a half miles of churning white noise laid out in a picturesque scene.

Whale Watching

Then travel south to Valdez Peninsula where over two hundred thousand tourists visit each year to see the whales and orcas.

Pampas

On your adventure to the southern part of Argentina, visit Pampas, where world-class beaches are strewn on the landscape with a painter's flair.

Mar del Plata

Try Mar de Plata too where you can swim with the seals. Mar Del Plata is a seaside resort where ground tours are available and paragliding as well. And after sun has gone down, enjoy a few cocktails as the nightlife begins to heat up.

Perito Glacier

After the beach, explore the Perito Glacier. This site is excellent for all ages, and you can walk right up and along side the glacier to experience them first hand. Located in Los Glaciares National Park it is also one of the world's largest reserve of fresh water.

Ushuaia

After the glacier, venture further south to what is known as the "end of the world" or possible the end of your vacation to visit Ushuaia, where looming mountains stand strong and majestic lakes mirror the sky.

Each place will provide a lasting impression to take with you for a lifetime to share stories and pictures with friends and family. This is not just a sightseeing tour, but journey full of lasting memories. Choose your vacation carefully so you don't miss anything you want to see.
