Argentina is the second largest country in South America, constituted as a federation of 23 provinces and an autonomous city, Buenos Aires. It is the eighth-largest country in the world by land area, the second largest in Latin America and the largest among Spanish-speaking nations, though Mexico, Colombia and Spain are more populous.
From Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south, Argentina is a vast natural wonderland. It boasts some of the Andes’ highest peaks and it is home to rich wetlands that rival Brazil’s famous Pantanal, mountains painted in rustic colours, deserts dotted with cacti, massive ice fields in Patagonia, cool flamingos, capybaras and more. All are stunning sights which makes it a popular travel destination.
