Argentina Vacations

Argentina is a land of geographic extremes. Stretching through the center of the country and along the western border is the land of the Gauchos and La Pampa. The Pampa region is a region of flat grasslands that extends from the Atlantic coast to the Andean foothills. It is an area that originally suited the raising of cattle and horses, but today you will find numerous wineries in the area. Further south is the Patagonia and it's rolling terrain that rises from the west coast of Argentina to the Andes Mountains. Along the western border with Chile are the Andes Mountains. Culturally, Argentina has a definite European flair because of the large number of Italian and Spanish immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. The capital of Argentina is cosmopolitan Buenos Aires with a population of 3,000,000. The cities of Argentina follow many southern European standards: businesses and shops open early, then they close for a long break at midday, and then stay open into the evening. Social interaction occurs in the streets, local bars and nightclubs; and meals are a time for enjoying family and friends.
