10 Best Places to Visit in Argentina – Travel Video


Located in the southern region of South America
in a large, elongated shape, Argentina was sparsely inhabited by a few indigenous tribes
before Spain’s colonized it in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, the country is an independent republic
featuring varied landscapes from rich plains to thick jungle, majestic mountains, pastoral
steppes and impressive glaciers. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Argentina. Number 10. Mar del Plata Once a retreat for Argentina’s aristocracy,
Mar del Plata today is the country’s top beach resort city. Located on the Atlantic Coast in the Buenos
Aires Province, Mar del Plata attracts millions of tourists every year to its sandy beaches
and lively culture. During the summer weekends it can get very
crowded here but outside the summer months, the city takes on a much more relaxed feel. Number 9. Cordoba At the geographical center of Argentina is
Cordoba, the country’s second largest city. Surrounded by picturesque valleys and mountains,
Cordoba is best known for its concentration of Spanish colonial buildings. Most of these historic palaces, churches and
monuments are found in the city center within an area known as the Jesuit Block. Cordoba is also home to more than 200,000
students, providing the city with a youthful and lively atmosphere. Number 8. Puerto Madryn Located on the shores of Gulfo Nuevo, the
city of Puerto Madryn is best known as the gateway to Peninsula Valdes. It is also a popular summer destination because
of its beautiful beaches although the water can be very cold. With the explosion of tourism in recent years,
Madryn has undergone rapid growth, and the town’s small permanent population swells
exponentially during the summer months. Whale Watching tours are also popular as the
Southern Right Whale uses the waters of Gulfo Nuevo for breeding and giving birth. From July to September the whales are so close
they can be viewed from the mainland. Number 7. Bariloche With its chocolate shops, Swiss-style architecture
and picturesque setting of pristine lakes and snow-capped mountains, San Carlos de Bariloche
appears more like a village in Switzerland. Instead, it is an enchanting city in the Río
Negro Province of Argentina. Commonly referred to as simply Bariloche,
the town also serves as a gateway to spectacular landscapes and outdoor adventures. The nearby mountains are a hot spot for snow
skiing, containing one of South America’s largest ski stations at Cerro Catedral. Number 6. Ushuaia Formerly used as a penal colony because of
its isolated location, Ushuaia’s remote beauty is now what makes it one of the most
popular places to visit in Argentina. Regarded as the world’s southernmost city,
Ushuaia is located on the Beagle Channel, serving as a popular base for Antarctica cruises,
winter sports and wildlife viewing. The nearby mountains provide hiking in the
summer and snow sports in the winter. Number 5. Mendoza Located in Latin America’s largest wine
producing region, Mendoza is a popular tourist destination not only for its wine but also
for its proximity to Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas. Furthermore, Mendoza offers access to beautiful
scenery and outdoor adventures such as hiking and river rafting. At the heart of Mendoza is its main square,
Independence Plaza, which is surrounded by restaurants, shops and beautiful buildings
that are illuminated at night. Number 4. El Calafate Formerly a sleepy town in a remote region
of Patagonia, El Calafate is now a booming tourist town thanks to the establishment of
the nearby Los Glaciares National Park. The town serves as a starting point for many
tourist excursions of which the Perito Moreno Glacier is the most popular due to its spectacular
display of cracking and thundering ice breaks. El Calafate itself is a charming town where
tourists can stroll down the main street and visit souvenir shops and museums like the
Glaciarium to learn about all about the region’s glaciers. Number 3. Los Glaciares Los Glaciares or Glaciers National Park is
home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders. Located in the Santa Cruz Province of the
vast Patagonia region, the national park features the largest ice cap outside of Greenland and
Antarctica. The repeated advancing and retreating cycle
of the glaciers presents a never ending show of cracking ice and thunderous booms as giant
blocks break away and crash into the lakes with enormous splashes. While the glaciers are located in the southern
section of the park, the northern section features majestic mountains such as Mount
Fitz Roy, offering hiking and mountain climbing. Number 2. Buenos Aires Pulsating with vitality and seductive charm
from colorful European architecture to animated neighborhoods and sizzling nightlife, it is
no wonder that Buenos Aires gave birth to the captivating tango dance. Located off the southeastern coast of South
America, Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina and one of Latin America’s
largest cities. This vibrant cosmopolitan city is composed
of several districts called barrios. Some of the most visited of these barrios
include the Microcentro where The Obelisco is located. San Telmo is popular for its flea markets
while La Boca’s multicolored architecture and tango street dancing make it a world famous
district. Number 1. Iguazu Falls One of the world’s most stunning natural
wonders, Iguazu Falls is a series of magnificent waterfalls located on the Iguazu River, straddling
the border between Brazil and Argentina. The falls in and of themselves are a breathtaking
spectacle, but their beauty is all the more enhanced by the surrounding lush forest teeming
in exotic wildlife. The falls area and wildlife are protected
by the Iguazu National Park. The park features many excellent walkways
while boat rides take people close enough to the falls to get wet from the spray. The town on the Argentine side is called Puerto
Iguazu and offers some of the best top-end hotels and spas in Argentina.

  1. several missing places in this video ( and at least a couple of the places in it aren't on anybody's list to visit from overseas: Mar del Plata, Puerto Madryn, Ushuaia)

    Places you must go include:
    Salta, Jujuy, Rosário, CaFajate, Santa Fé, Lá Puna, El cuyo… San Rafael, San Juan…

  2. Good video so far but the music sucks really, it pronounces COrdoba – NOT – corDOba, Ushuaia you say it this way, Usuaia like having no H, El Calafate is El calaFAte and you have to pronounce the E at the end, there are tons of good music to play in videos like this one but this one OMG, I couldn't watch it until the end sorry but thank you for stopping by and sharing my country 🙂

  3. What about the North, Salta/Jujuy??!, is full of great and beautiful landscapes, food and people. The photos of this video are quite lame too.

  4. I just returned from Argentina and was very disappointed. This was a trip we had been looking forward to for so long. We found buenos aries to be a very boring city and nothing like the descriptions in the posts. Many tourists we met in Argentina felt the same way. It lacks the flare and vitality of other south American cities. We spent four cheesy, boring days in buenos aries but then moved onto Iguazu. The Iguazu falls were breathtaking from both Argentina and Brazil. We also travelled to Salta which we loved. I wish we had decided to stay in Brazil and see the Iguazu falls from there instead. Buenos aries needs to get a better personality.

  5. Oh dear Argentina, I miss you.
    The generosity of the people, the food and the nature of Argentina itself. Beautiful and pure. I am of Lao descent and I am so thankful to Argentina for taking many of our peoples under their wings when we had our civil war. I spent 5 years of my young life in Misiones. I would go back any time. Vamos Argentina! ❤️🇦🇷🇱🇦

  6. al video le falto: las villas miserias de buenos aires, cordoba, rosario, los cartels de drogas , la TV prostubilaria que presentan, aborteros , la inflacion , el desempleo, etc etc. Gracias

  7. I’m watching this as I am traveling to celebrate my birthday in Argentina, specifically in Buenos Aires, but I am also open to any other city. My whole birthday month will be in Central and South America- specifically Nicaragua, Peru, and Argentina. I thought about Chile but I am not sure yet.

  8. are they going to update the video: high inflation, high unemployment, insecurity everywhere, drugs and prostitution in every corner of the city, strikes and demonstrations every day..

  9. Good music. Commentary not so good, mistakes on the names of the places. You're missing the north of the country, Talampaya National Park, Ischigualasto Provincial Park, etc.

  10. I'm afraid we couldn't find anything worth getting excited about in Argentina. We travelled to Buenos Aires, Salta and Iguazu. Buenos Aires was, I am sorry to say a poor imitation and caricature of places in Europe. It was cheesy and quite boring. Salta was beautiful and Iguazu is probably the most amazing place in Argentina. However the Brazilian side of Iguazu is more strikingly beautiful and better for photographs. I hope Argentina returns to being a Latin American country rather than trying to adopt a slightly ridiculous, pompous European feel.

  11. What about the Northwest??La Rioja,Catamarca,Salta,Tucuman y Jujuy?Is nothing in this videos,why?This provincias have amazing lanscapings.

  15. Неудивительно, что Аргентина является популярным туристическим направлением, благодаря потрясающим пейзажам, обилию экзотической дикой природы, колониальным городам и городам, изобилующим великолепной кухней и яркой культурой. Расположенная в южной части Южной Америки в большом вытянутом виде, Аргентина редко населялась несколькими коренными племенами до того, как Испания колонизировала ее в 16-17 веках. Сегодня страна является независимой республикой с разнообразными ландшафтами от богатых равнин до густых джунглей, величественных гор, пастбищных степей и впечатляющих ледников.
