As the eight largest country on earth, Argentina offers some phenomenal sightseeing activities and is steeped in culture. Some areas of the country that are worth the extra sightseeing time are Patagonia, Mendoza, and Buenos Aires.
Patagonia is located in the southern part of the country and stretches from the Andes to the Atlantic. The Andes region features towering fjords, glaciers, and unspoiled wilderness. The middle of Patagonia features vast steppes and plains. On the eastern side it reaches the Atlantic where there are beautiful cliffs, European settlements, and where visitors can see a unique ecosystem that is only rivaled by the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Finally in southern Patagonia is where Los Glaciares National Park is located and where visitors can see the word’s third largest ice cap, rivaled only by ice caps in Antarctica and Greenland.
Mendoza is located in the west central region of Argentina. It is the largest wine producing area in Latin America. If you’re a wino, you must visit Mendoza.
Buenos Aires is Argentina’s capital. As mentioned before, Argentina is steeped in European culture and the symbol, the Obelisk, reflects just that. Buenos Aires has many open squares similar to ones in Spain and is also the commercial and financial capital of Argentina. Since anglers arrive in and depart out of Buenos Aires we recommend at least one day there to see the sights, sounds, and tastes it has to offer.
