Don´t look for silver in Argentina. Evita, Maradona, Messi, Pope Francis, Gabriela Sabatini, passionate tango, soccer, delicious meat, Gauchos, wine, Aconcagua, penguins, waterfalls, glaciers, Tierra del Fuego, the  Andes, maté tea, trains to the sky - all this and many other things characterize the country of Argentina.

When the first Spanish colonizers gave this wonderful country its name, they thought it was overflowing with silver. In fact, there is very little silver in Argentina, but this country has other hidden treasures. Argentina is golden with its magical and diverse wildlife, amazing food and excellent wines, passionate tango and soccer, a turbulent history and lively people.

Don’t forget to bring your swimsuits in winter and skis in summer. Seasons in Argentina are opposite ours as this country is located in the southern hemisphere. If you want to ski in the Andes, you have to visit Argentina from June to September. If you want to travel to Patagonia and see the famous glaciers, book your air ticket for the period between December and February. You can visit Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls year-round.
