Argentina offers many attractions and destinations to tourists - stunning natural beauty, an elegant Capital with its very own flavor, and a passion for culture are as tempting as ever. Patagonia, Tango, the Pampas, Gauchos, Fine Dining, and Exquisite Wines, all make Argentina the best travel destination of South America.

For residents of the northern hemisphere, Argentina presents the possibility of enjoying two summers in the same year. Its elongated geography makes a visit in during any time of the year worthwhile. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Buenos Aires (the summer is hot and humid). Mendoza, Cordoba and the Lake District are all spectacular in autumn, when the leaves are fiery reds and yellows, the temperatures are comfortable and the crowds are thin. Patagonian destinations, such as the Perito Moreno Glacier in Santa Cruz, are best visited between December and February, when the weather is milder and more travel services are available. Northern Argentina, including the Iguazu Falls on the subtropical border to Brazil, is also more pleasant in the southern hemisphere's winter or spring when heat and humidity are less oppressive. Ski season runs mid-June through mid-October, and the resorts are most crowded in July and August when every Che (person from Argentina) seems to be on the slopes.
