Travel to Argentina is in all ways the definition of fabulous, as most Argentineans would be more than happy to tell you facts about Argentina.
South America's darling and second largest nation (after Brazil) is teeming with fantastic culture, biodiversity, ultra hip cities like Buenos Aires, an unabated passion for fine wine, scrumptious steak and an uncompromised quality of life.
Following a recent economic crisis, the country is just as splendid a destination, like the Hawaii resorts while leaving a far smaller hole in your wallet.
Raise Your Glass, Your Consciousness and Your Elevation
Argentina's central fertile plain of the Pampas is the main agriculture hub and South America's world renowned wine producing region.
Córdoba, Argentina's second city, is the heart of this region and full of universities, historic museums and an extremely posh and youthful nightlife.
Just southwest of Córdoba is the wine capital of Mendoza. Come for the harvest festivals at the end of February and stay to enjoy the warm hospitality during a vineyard tour of the many bodegas in March and April.
Explore the surrounding rocky desert by hopping on a horseback riding expedition or paddling down some whitewater with a local guide.
Nestled against the Andes Mountain Range, the Mendoza region is also home to South America's tallest peak, Cerro Aconcagua, at 22,834 ft. Guided trekking expeditions to the top can be arranged for those with appropriate expertise.
Others may find the trip to base camp exhilarating enough. The area is an extremely popular Andes ski destination as well, including the winter resorts of Las Leñas and San Carlos de Bariloche.
