Corrientes

 
Corrientes Corrientes is one of the oldest cities of Argentina. Located some 1000 km from Buenos Aires at the confluence of the Parana and Paraguay rivers it is a pleasant place to stay a few days, although you shouldn't expect anything spectacular. The pattern of the city is that of a perfect grid. The Plaza 25 de Mayo is the centre of town (heard that one before) but the attractions are spread out all over all the city. For shopping head for the Junin mall between Salta and Catamarca streets. The shady riverside Parque Mitre is a perfect place to relax. The Convento de San Francisco on Mendoza street is one of the nicest attractions. The Museo Historico and the Museo de Bellas Artes are both well worth a visit too. A...
 

Esquina Corrientes

 
Esquina Corrientes Corrientes has Paye says the popular saying from the area. Paye in the land of the acient Guaranies means majesty, the leyend says whoever visits Corrientes falls in love completely. Posada hambare is exactly like that, its a place where youll fall in love and youll never forget it. It is the best place to perceive fluvial essence of the Mesopotamia. The place is unique for its nature and its environment, it is located in front of the Corrientes River giving the most spectacular view from the house. That River begins at the Esteros del Ibera and ends up by the Esquinas port, crossing by unexplored landscapes fulfilling by its beauty along its way, making the River become the only in the world that does not hav...
 

Humahuaca

 
Humahuaca Located in the North West of Argentina, the Quebrada de Humahuaca is one of the major tourist sights. The colonial architecture and the barren landscape will remind the traveler of Peru and Bolivia. The town of Humahuaca is located on the Rio Grande, at an elevation of 3000 meter. There are a few nice old churches and the famous Clock Tower in the cabildo, but for most tarvelers Humahuace servers as a base for exploring the region. Tilcara is worthwhile, it has a few museums and the pre-Hispanic pucara is well worth a visit as well. A few kilometer to the south the hillside cemetery of Maimara is a great photo opportunity. ...
 

Jujuy

 
Jujuy If youre travelling north from Buenos Aires, this might be the first time you really feel like you`re in South America. Jujuy still is an Argentine city, with western-style cafs and shops. But it has a large Quechua population, which gives this town a very intercultural feel. Except during the siesta, which is taken dead serious here, there is always a pleasant chaos in town. Do bring your earplugs if you intend to sleep at night. Around the bus terminal lodging is redicously cheap, but its always noisy there. A good nights sleep is essential to apreciate the feel of this town. This can be a good base for exploring the magnificent Andes by rented car, north to the Quebrada de Humahuaca or west to the Salinas Grandes...
 

Reconquista

 
Reconquista Reconquista may not be the big tourist city you would jump at the chance of travelling to. No bright lights, casinos, streets of restaurants or theme parks here. But if you're looking to experience part of small-town Argentina while not going too small, Reconquista is a good place to check out. With a population of 70,000 people Reconquista is small without being scarily so. Nearby Avellaneda is 4km across the river and it's 25,000 residents add to the general population of the area. Reco (as it's fondly known as to the locals) is located in the north of the province of Santa Fe, near the Rio Parana. It is a city traditionally designed with all streets parallel to eachother, interspersed with many green plazas (...
 

Bariloche

 
Bariloche Bariloche is well known as a posh ski resort in the Argentinian Andes. But the town has a lot more to offer than just ski slopes. There is a great National Park nearby, and there are many hiking, biking, rafting and other outdoor activities waiting for you. Every season in Bariloche has its own special charm. Winter brings the excitement of skiing and the graduate trips that arrive between july and september. Fishing tackle in November, long, hot days in summer and crowded chocolate shops at Easter are typical of the changing seasons. Bariloche's tourist area is located near the Centro Cvico, with the main shopping and business area centered on Mitre street, and to a lesser extent, Moreno and intersecting street...
 

Buenos Aires

 
Buenos Aires Buenos Aires is one of the most European cities in South America. It is a very stylish city with many interesting buildings from the nineteenth century. It is also known as the South American Paris for its architecture and style. Don't miss the neighborhood of San Telmo. A run-down but appealing area halfway between midtown and the south end of the city, it is comparable to New York's Greenwich Village. Cobblestone streets here are rich with early 19th-century colonial architecture and mansions once inhabited by upper-class Spaniards. Buenos Aires has been hit particularly hard by the economic crash that has shaken the country. People (including very young children) can be seen begging on the streets throughout ...
 

Iguazu falls

 
Iguazu falls Although commercialized and touristy, the Iguazu falls are definitely worth a visit. They are located on the border between Brazil and Argentina, and can be reached from both sides as well as from Paraguay. Legend attributes their origin to the anger of a god who lost the girl he loved. When you look down the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's throat) you will believe that there is some truth in this story. Iguazu falls are the second largest in the world after Victoria Falls in Africa and are deservedly one of the seventh wonders of the world. Their height isn't so inspiring as is their length - the falls seem to go on and on in the distance. When the water level of the river is high, the whole ridge is almost covere...
 

Mendoza

 
Mendoza Mendoza is the most important city of the West of Argentina. Set at the foot of the Andes mountains at an altitude of 760 meters, it is only 200 km from Santiago in Chile. The city was founded in 1561, and although this is not an Earthquake free zone, there are quite a few historic buildings of interest in the centre. The Ruinas de San Francisco mission in the Ciudad Vieja, the Museo Fundacional and the Parque San Martin are main attraction in town. On saturdays you should visit the Plaza Espana, where a artisans market is held. For a cup of coffee, choose one of the sidewalks terraces on Avenida San Martin. Around Mendoza there are many wineries one can visit. Other interesting options around are skiing in ...
 

Mocona Falls

 
Mocona Falls The Mocona falls are a spectacular sight, that would be quite touristy if it wasnt for the nearby Igauz Falls. The Ro Uruguay drops no more than 20 meters at this place, but the falls are as wide as three kilometers as the falls are diagonal on the already wide river. For the moment there is no infrastructure on the Argentine side of the river to get close to the falls. Hence getting to the viewpoint in the middle of the river implies wading through the shallow river water. Its refreshing and not dangerous, but it is a little tyring. On the Argentine side the place can be visited from El Soberbio (cheap good value place to stay right next to the bus terminal, ask in the closest bar) or other nearby towns. From E...
