Learn More About Argentina Tours
South America tours that include visits to Argentina center around Buenos Aires, the county's capital. With a huge influx of French architecture throughout the city, it almost feels Parisian. In fact, with its wide boulevards and outdoor cafes, Buenos Aires is known as the "Paris of South America."
Buenos Aires is filled with varied neighborhoods, such as Recoleta with its beautiful cemetery where Eva "Evita" Peron is buried; Palermo (especially Palermo's Soho) with its many parks and gardens; and San Telmo, which is one of the oldest neighborhoods and full of tango clubs. Another must-see district is Boca, Buenos Aires' "Little Italy," full of colorful houses made of wood and corrugated tin.
On an Argentina tour, visitors can visit real working ranches in the Pampas, a day trip from Buenos Aires. Here, snap photos of the hard-working "gauchos," and enjoy a barbecue lunch. After all, Argentina is known for its delectable steak. And before you leave the country, make sure you get a chance to watch the sensuous tango - or perhaps you'd like to try it yourself!
