Are you ready for the sophisticated side of South America? Argentina, and its stunning capital Buenos Aires, are bright lights in the South American sky. A society teeming with unique culture, distinct flavour and a bravado like no other, Argentina will definitely keep you coming back for me.

Argentines are known for being a refined people. They can be found on extended lunches sipping on the finest of wines or devouring home-grown carne (meat) that is shipped the world over. And, there’s never a need to look at your watch while in Argentina, as time seems to slow down and an easy pace allows you to enjoy life and meander through the day.

But, once the sun goes down, Argentina will not slow down! Known for not kicking off the night until midnight, Argentines dance, laugh, sing and drink through the night and won’t cap it off until early the next morning. So, be prepared – Argentina will keep you on your toes.

If you do want to escape the big city and enjoy the countryside – why not head to Iguazo Falls in the north and experience waterfalls that straddle the Brazilian border or head deep into The Pampas region and see a land set back in time as old school cowboys (vaqueros) tend to the pastures and roaming cattle. Or, for the biggest of adventurers, head down to Ushuaia and catch a boat down to Antarctica for a really different vibe.

No matter where you go or what you do, Argentina presents a diverse and decadent landscape – allowing you to slow down and take in some nature or carry on and embrace the city chic that is – Argentina.
