Posted on November 17 2015
Argentina is one of the best places to visit in South America. No matter what type of vacation you’re looking for. Explore the funky architecture and nightlife of Buenos Aires, go skiing on the snowy mountains of Bariloche, or return to nature in the Amazon Rainforest. No matter what part of this beautiful country you visit, Argentina has a lot to offer.

Ever wished you could fly? Well, now you can. If you visit Argentina, you can go ziplining, which both allows you to achieve that dream of flying, and gives you a bird’s eye view of the stunning Amazon Rainforest. Another plus is that many ziplining-services are kid-friendly. So whether you’re six years old or eighty-two, ziplining is an activity that’s perfect or the whole family.
Strap-in and buckle up. Argentina is truly a thrill-seeker's mecca!
2. Iguazu Falls
Have a sense of adventure? Then imagine yourself in Iguazu: one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Take a boat ride down the Amazon river, while getting gorgeous views of waterfalls. Iguazu Falls is the largest waterfall system in the world, and rests on the Brazilian border. Truly one of the top reasons to visit Argentina!

3. The Spanish Language and Culture
Argentina is a Spanish-speaking nation with a rich culture and beautiful old world charm. But even if you don’t speak the language, many of the people in Argentina speak more than one language, so you’d be sure to find someone who knows English. And remember, no visit to Argentina is complete without wondering through the quaint shopping streets enjoying the local offerings and culture up close.

4. Mid-Day Naps and Late Nights
Be sure to bring a sleeping mask and some fun evening outfits for the vibrant nightlife of Argentina! Time is thought of a little differently in South America: from around 2-5 p.m., all stores and businesses close down for mid-day naps, and they eat dinner at around 11 p.m. Even the kids stay up very late with their families.
5. Mendoza Wine Country
If you love wine country culture, Argentina is the place for you. Mendoza has a huge wine culture, similar to Napa Valley, CA. It has almost 400,000 acres of vineyards. Mendoza is also a sunny, relaxing area, that offers over 300 sunny days a year.
