Argentina

A vast and varied country, the home of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi has much to offer visitors, from the highest mountain in South America, Aconcagua, to glaciers to the exciting city of Buenos Aires, and the laid-back Mendoza. Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and a popular departure point for cruises to Antarctica.

Patagonia draws most visitors. El Calafate in the southwest has the majestic Perito Moreno glacier, one of the world's few advancing glaciers. Argentina is also one of the three countries bordering the Iguazu Falls. And La Plata, near Buenos Aires, is known as 'the perfect city' for its street grid pattern.
