Introducing Argentina

Argentina exudes passion. From the steamy dance of tango to the cult of futbol, Argentinean culture is as flavorful as its cuisine.

When is the best time to visit?
Since Argentina is a vast country, with climates ranging from the warm North to the icy South, when to visit really depends on where you plan on going. But as a general rule of thumb, travelers should aim to visit from April to June (fall) or from September to December (spring). Learn more

Where should I go in Argentina?
City life in Buenos Aires is a constant blur and a must-see for any visitor interested in soaking up the exciting culture of this country. Argentina boasts a host of natural splendors as well, from the Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the icy beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier and the Andean salt flats. Whatever destination travelers prefer, most will agree on one thing: there’s nothing like a well-grilled Argentinian steak accompanied by a glass of local red wine. Learn more

How many days do I need?
To truly experience Argentina, and eat your way through their diverse cuisine, plan to spend at least 10 days in this high-energy country. Learn more

Getting around in Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina, though most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions. Learn more

The view from here is amazing. This is my second trip to this ethereal land within a year of each other. First was the Southern provinces of Patagonia. Which lead to the craving to see so much more of South America. The Northwest regions of Argentina’s frontier lands, to stand on the Tropic of Capricorn, And who better to make it happen than my trusted friends at KimKim. Ana, my darling one of kind planner. Give her your wish list and she will make it happen. Take it from me, I’m hard to please and Ana didn’t fail me on this second go-a-around.

I can truly say that I’ve managed to see a forceful awe-inspiring wonder that is Argentina’s Northern provinces. Mendoza, Tunuyán, Luján de Cuyo, Salta, Cafayate, Maimará, Purmamarca, Tilcara, Humahuaca, Pucara de Tilcara, San Salvador de Jujuy, Guachipas, the Wetlands of Pellegrini, Lago Iberá. Folks you have to be in good physical shape for the wetlands, (no back injuries, no anxious behavior, or motion sickness if you are prone.) As this road is treacherous to getting to your destination. Approximately a 7 hour drive from Misiones to Corrientes to Pellegrini. But so worth it. If you are game. The beauty and its powerful effect of mindfulness and tranquility is absolutely incredible. A land untouched by time. Animal enthusiasts will sure want to experience this land.

A sincere shout out to the guides, drivers, and hotel staffs who become part of my family while visiting and exploring their beautiful country. Daniel- a kind sprint his dedication in getting up at an un-godly hour of the morning to take me to the airport in order to catch my domestic flights to my destinations. Ramiro my triple AAA 1# Trekking and mountain explorer who took me to 4500ft above sea level elevations just to catch a view of the highlands and into the life of the Vicuñas territory. Guided me through the Salinas Grandes Salt Flats, showed me the beautiful history of Andean culture and the ruins of Pucara de Ticara as old as 5000 bc. And managed to share a meal with me and my family in the Pena’s of Salta to drink and laugh hysterically as we listened to folklore music and the history of samba culture, where the youth of today still is passionate of its music and heritage that is Salta to this day. A beautiful and kind city full of music, dance, and history, and the best empanadas this side of my beautiful Mendoza. I can go on and on, but you need to experience this for yourselves. I’ve just given you a small taste of what South American means to me. My pachamama. Love to all. Sandra Rawlings

I can't stop raving about the smaller wineries in this region. Salta's Torrentes wines are one of a kind, especially at this little winery that specializes in sparkling wines. Burbujas Winery. I met Andres and his lovely wife. His family owned winery is custom to small runs but his story and legacy from the Noruega blood line is what you need to stop and listen as he describes his craft as enólogo. And how he nurtures the land, Ecosistma. and cradles his craft. I highly recommend these type of vineyards to the larger ones

From the 1892 Colonial Mission Style hotel, to the town square with all its shopping. I was fortunate enough to see Salta celebrating their Anniversary this day. Parade of Gauchos and China's on traditional attire, dancing through the town of Salta, gauchos yipping and hollering while the crowd watched in awe. Taking pictures at the marvel coming down the street. Our guide Ramiro, knew one of the gauchos and flagged him over to where we were on the steps of the Cathedral and I took a picture with a gaucho. Getting my shoes shined by an old world traditional back in the 40's was a treat. Eating pastel de papa, at an outdoor cafe while a troop of young Salteños matching through the town in uniform and wearing the Salta flag, all ages from 5 to 18.
