Argentina is a country of seemingly endless variety. The world's eighth largest country, it stretches from its tropical north to a glacial south, the mountainous Andes in the west to the sweeping Atlantic coastline in the east.
This is a land of great passion, where national football matches mesmerize a nation and the city streets rock and weave to the aphrodisiac effects of the tango. Argentines live intensely - perhaps a product of a rocky political past, or perhaps because they don't dare relax for too long, knowing the abundant delights that sit on their doorstep that would take a lifetime to explore.
Holidays to Argentina typically start in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires, a heady mix of Havana's colour and Paris's elegance. The great natural playground of beautiful Patagonia is another highlight, while the vineyards of Cafayate in the northern province of Salta reveal another side to the country.
