The second largest country in South America, and home of the irresistibly sexy tango, Argentina is a land of rugged mountains, rich rolling plains, lush jungles and inspiring deserts. Argentina's cultural heritage is a fascinating mix of Old World customs and native traditions. With its political stability, incredible terrain and friendly people, Argentina is once again at the forefront of South American travel.
Most visitors to Argentina prefer to stay in vacation rentals in the country's capital, Buenos Aires. With plenty of wide-open, green spaces for walking, boating and enjoying the scenery, Buenos Aires is a great place to relax and enjoy the best of Argentina. The city also boasts fantastic museums, impressive cemeteries and some of the best Spanish and Italian cuisine outside of Europe. Buenos Aires is well-equipped with public transportation, so any vacation home you choose will be within a short distance to the exotic sights and sounds of the city.
There is also plenty to do outside Buenos Aires. The Andean Northwest is the second most traveled area outside the capital. This desert area is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, starry night skies and proximity to Peru and Bolivia. The increase in tourism to the area has made vacation homes in major provinces like Salta and Jujuy in high demand.
