Argentina, A Vast Natural Wonderland
Argentina, part of the Southern Cone, is one of the main destinations in Latin America and the most visited in South America. Its vast geography makes it the 8th largest country in the world. This vastness includes plains, plateaus, and mountains and thus explains its great biodiversity. Here you will find tourist attractions, natural wonders, culture, traditions, and a superb cuisine.
