Argentina is a holiday-maker’s paradise with its lovely landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture. Being the eighth largest country in the world, its diverse and year-round tourism possibilities are one of Argentina’s distinguishing features, resulting from a singular geography that ranges from the subtropical forest in the northern border to the icy Antarctica in the farthest south. Throughout its lengthy coastal area, Argentina offers numerous opportunities to enjoy sunny beaches and the possibility to watch a wide variety of wildlife in the Atlantic Patagonian area. In turn, the Andean Patagonian area displays its majestic forests, lakes and ancient glaciers, with an amazing combination of active, snow and adventure tourism. This outstanding natural beauty gives holidaymakers the opportunity to choose from a varied selection of holidays.

Argentina is situated in South America, between the Atlantic Ocean in the East and the Andes mountain range on the Western border with Chile, where the highest mountain peak outside the Himalayas is situated (Aconcagua - 22,834 ft - 6,960 m). The northeast rocky desert plateau (Altiplano), the rich plain in the centre (La Pampa), the jungle in the extreme northeast, the southern plateau of Patagonia, the rugged Andes in the west, the lakes and glaciers in the south, all of this diversity provides holidaymakers a wide range of holidays opportunities.
The first prehistory human settlements where in south (Patagonia) around 13,000 years ago. The Spanish arrived to Argentina in 1516. In 1810 the independence from Spain was declared and the current ‘República de Argentina’ (Argentine Republic) was declared in 1816.
By the turn of the 20th Century, Argentina had a strong economy, attracting more than 6 million immigrants, mainly from Italy and Spain. After World War II, a long period of Peronist rule was followed by a military junta that took power in 1976. Democracy returned in 1983 after the Argentine military attempted to take the ‘Islas Malvinas’ or 'Falkland Islands' from British rule. After a terrible economic crisis at the end of the 20th Century, Argentina has seemed to find a new stability.
The native Argentineans and the immigrants from the Middle East and Europe, mainly from Italy & Spain, had carved, in the last 500 years, the country’s art, its festivals, the food, language (Spanish), music and dance (tango).
