Argentina is a nation of contrasts with landscapes ranging from
lush, tropical forests to the frigid ice fields of the Antarctic.
The beaches of the Atlantic coast roll onto the flat, verdant pampas
that stretch westward and dry out, eventually colliding with the
majestic Andes Mountains.

supporting theaters, art museums, historical mansions, national
monuments, and 2 professional soccer teams. Located 200 miles upriver
from Buenos Aires on the Paraná River, the city has a rich
history influenced by European ancestry in a uniquely South American
way—giving the busy city center a flavorful charm evident
in its language, style, and cuisine.
