Located at the southern tip of South America, Argentina is a geographically diverse country. To the west, the Andes mountain peaks reach nearly 23,000 feet. The lush pampas grasslands dominate the central eastern portion of the country nurturing cattle that become the world famous Argentine beef – asado. The western central region is home to Mendoza and its internationally recognized wines.
Untamed Argentine Patagonia in the south is a reminder that mother nature is alive and well. Natural forces beyond our control of wind, rain and snow create majestic sites unlike any other in the world.
To the east on the South Atlantic Ocean, the capital city of Buenos Aires with its architecture that resembles and rivals that of Paris, is a distinct reminder that Argentina is a country with the ancestors of three million Europeans immigrants. For a people with strong European cultural ties, Argentina has become a country with its own distinct personality. It is a country all its own.
