Argentina Travel Guide
Travel in Argentina has reached new heights and is quickly becoming a hot spot of international travel. Laying claim to one of South America’s most popular cities, Buenos Aires draws high-end travelers and back packers alike. With an enormous array of sprawling landscapes over 3500 kilometers, the geographical diversity and beauty of Argentina attracts nature lovers and adventure seekers. Beaches littered with South American beauties and boutique shops with high-end fashions fill some of the trendier locations, but all of it makes up one of the largest growing tourist economies on the market: Argentina.
Perhaps one of the best travel tools is the favorable exchange rate in Argentina. Because of the economic depreciation of the peso on 2001, this South American paradise has since become one of the most affordable countries in the world for travel.
Tourism has become the third largest source of income for Argentina after a 12% increase in 2004. Since then, tourism has continued to boom, with an even larger increase in 2005 solidifying Argentina’s economic relationship to tourism.
Besides being world renowned for its wine and food, Argentina is famous for its natural beauty, existing in epic proportions. This includes the waterfalls of Iguazu, the deserts of Salta, Patagonian glaciers and world famous skiing. Besides sharing borders with Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil and Uruguay; Argentina is home to the southern most city on earth and its final border – the end of the world.
