Sitting at the southern tip of South America, Argentina is home to some of the highest peaks in the Andes, stunning waterfalls and wondrous glaciers.
Sharing a border with Chile to the west and Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil and Uruguay to the north, Argentina spans 2.8 million km² and has a population of just over 41 million people. The country's capital, Buenos Aires, was founded by the Spanish in the 16th century and the country remained under Spanish rule until the 1800s.
Those looking for big city vibes and vibrant nightlife should head to Buenos Aires, whilst wine lovers should spend their time in Argentina's wine capital, Mendoza. For the adventurous, San Carlos de Bariloche is a dream sitting in the centre of Nahuel Huapi National Park and Córdoba offers plenty in the way of rolling hills and stunning architecture.

Best way to get around
Riding the bus is a great way of seeing the country, and most will just need small change. If you're heading to Buenos Aires you'll need a specific bus card. Buses are usually numbered and carry their final destination on a placard in the window.
Argentina is a pretty large country, so it can save you both time and money to fly if you're travelling longer distances.
Renting a car can be a good option for travellers who plan on venturing outside of the capital.
