ARGENTINA'S  ESSENTIAL TRIANGLE


WHY ARGENTINA?
Argentina is a destination rich in contrasts: its landscapes, weather and culture vary from the special charm of the North with its legacy of Pre Colombian and Colonial traditions, the abundance of wild life, flora and water at the Iguazú Falls & Jungle in the Northeast, to the vastness, isolation and breathtaking views of the Glaciers and marine life of Patagonia. The wine and sunshine in the Cuyo region and the brightness and exuberance of tango in Buenos Aires, the “Paris of South America”, and The Pampas, one of the richest natural regions of the continent and home to the “gaucho”, complete the wonders of this land of contrasts. Argentina, land of contrasts, has something for everyone. Let our expertise lead you to discover your own experience in “Our World”.
