Argentina is one of the countries with the greatest tourist attraction in all of Latin America. The visitors' arrival occurs at all times of the year, something that is explained due to the wide diversity of climates throughout its territory.
We have compiled the 5 most emblematic and beautiful places for you to consider when visiting this country. Let's discover them!
1. Buenos Aires
The capital of the country is one of the most beautiful and traditional places that tourists travel when they arrive in the country. The reasons are quite simple: there is a lot of culture available there.

For example, if you are passionate about soccer, you can visit the mythical stadium of Boca Juniors, “La Bombonera", while you will visit the narrow passages of Caminito, along with its picturesque houses and the popular Buenos Aires tango playing in the background.
Although, of course, not everything ends there: you will also have different cultural heritage of Buenos Aires to visit, such as the Teatro Colón, Luna Park, the Women's Bridge or the emblematic Plaza de Mayo.
2. San Carlos de Bariloche
Located in the province of Río Negro, it has a climate with particular characteristics, where millenary forests stand out, something that you can appreciate, for example, on Victoria Island, home of a relaxing forest of arrayanes.
On the other hand, it is a tourist destination with a wide range of activities. You will find traditional excursions, snow sports such as snowboarding or sky, or romantic outings with local chocolate (one of the gastronomic specialties of the place).
The capital of the province of Tierra del Fuego is considered the "southernmost city in the world."
Among the main attractions, you can find different ice skating rinks, visits to different glaciers, some cultural museums (mainly, we highlight the “Museum of the End of the World”), in addition to a particularly relaxing environment, ideal if you want to depart from all your Concerns and obligations.

4. Quebrada de Huamuaca
Let's leave the south of the Argentine territory a little and place ourselves in the north, more specifically in the province of Jujuy, where an arid and rocky terrain appears, together with formations with orange and reddish tones, which creates an ideal climate for a tourist visit .
In case you did not know, the Quebrada de Humauaca is considered by UNESCO as one of the Natural Heritage of Humanity. In addition to these fantastic colors, we highlight the villages and homes with structures of yesteryear, which will make you understand the culture of the place.
5. Iguazu National Park
Here we not only have a Natural World Heritage Site according to UNESCO, but also one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
¿Conocés el salto Dos Hermanas en el Parque Nacional #Iguazú? Hacia el final de los paseos inferiores, se encuentran estas dos cascadas casi iguales que caen a una pileta natural. Allí hay bancos donde se puede descansar mientras se escucha caer el agua contra las rocas. pic.twitter.com/NFoOchUJO2— Parques Nacionales (@ParquesOficial) 9 de marzo de 2019
Located in the missionary jungle of the province of Misiones, we can appreciate a unique landscape, where the water falls like a spring, combining with the green tones of all the vegetation that makes up this beautiful landscape.
In addition, we highlight the appearance of the Iguazu River, along with a large number of wild specials that you will want to know, such as toucans or coaties .
