    Over the years, people have asked me what my favorite country I've traveled to is. I keep pointing to Argentina, where I spent a month in 2007. It has the best of everything: culturally vibrant and colorful cities like Buenos Aires, scenic mountain ranges, friendly people, amazing Italian-quality cuisine at 1/6 the costs, peaceful natural reserves, and even quirky towns in the middle of nowhere like Gaiman, or "little Wales", where you can eat authentic crumpets with tea after visiting the hordes of penguins that gather on the seaside. And of course there's tango, which is always fun to watch in Argentina even if you lack those skills yourself.

    I only went to 2 areas of Argentina. Buenos Aires and Mendoza. Buenos Aires I gave a 2 star, I didn't care for it. It almost felt like being in Paris, I sensed some arrogance. Shopping was difficult because it was hard to get good service. I'm used to getting a lot of attention while shopping, my friends and I are big shoppers but I felt like I was begging the sales workers to assist me. The food wasn't all that impressive. However, everyone was super nice in Mendoza. I had a great time wine tasting! Mendoza gets a 4 so I averaged it out to a 3 star.

    I loved Argentina. You have everything from one of my all time favorite cities, Buenos Aires, to some of the best waterfalls in the world at Iquazu to the simplicity in the mountains. Definitely worth a trip.

    I love this country. Argentina, in specific, Buenos Aires, is my favorite city in the world. I have everything I could want here and have met the best friends. The food is not as fun and exciting as Thailand or something exotic like that, but the steaks and wine cannot be compared! I highly recommend a visit or living in Argentina!

Description

All too often Argentina is encapsulated in one city. Sure, Buenos Aires is a wonderful place to get a cosmopolitan feel for South America, but venture out of the capital and you’ll find that Argentina tantalizes visitors with its dizzying array of attractions. From tango to penguins, Argentina is filled with the expected and unexpected. While Argentina was on the brink of economic self-destruction in the not-too-distant past, the economy has rebounded. Traveling in Argentina often feels like traveling in Italy or Spain, but without the euro prices. Highlights here range from marveling at the hundreds of lakes that sparkle in the heights of the Andes Mountains to hiking the windswept plains of the Patagonia. Eating beef is considered practically sacred here, and these days, often accompanied with Argentine wine (Argentina is the fifth largest producer of wine in the world). Sleep off dinner in one of Argentina's unique places to stay: eco-spas, working cattle ranches, and fantastic value city-center hostels and hotels for all budgets.
