Elegant cities and natural wonders in Argentina

Argentina can easily seduce, with its flowing red wine, elegant tango moves and mighty natural wonders. The first port of call for most is the capital Buenos Aires, where stylish portenos sip coffee at curbside cafes and where heated debates on futbol are the norm. Beyond BA, there are other sophisticated cities like Cordoba and Mendoza, while the vast plains which stretch between them are still home to gaucho life. It's hard not to wax lyrical about the country's diverse topography. When you stay at an Argentina vacation rental, expect glistening glaciers and tumbling waterfalls, snow-capped peaks and steamy sub-tropical rainforest.

Things to do

Layers of history left by the Spanish in Argentina

Argentina's history stretches back a long way and throughout the years, layers of culture have rubbed off from the Incans, Jesuits and Spanish, not to mention the other European immigrants who have made the country their home over the last century. The modern cultural capital is Buenos Aires, whose museums and galleries can rival any of those found in New York or London. Across the country, though, remnants of its past are present and reflected through the old Jesuits structures, elegant Spanish colonial cathedrals and ancient pre-Columbian ruins. This is a country much more diverse than you might think.


Argentina's outdoors is truly great

If you're looking to delve into the great outdoors, you've come to the right place when you nab an Argentina vacation rental. There's hiking footpaths criss-crossing the whole country, from the northern deserts to the snow-peaked monoliths of the Andes and the vast plains. Some prefer to find sunny riverbanks for fly-fishing, while others saddle up to go horseback riding across the windswept Patagonian steppe. Extreme sports nuts won't be disappointed when they're ice climbing up glistening glaciers, hopping on rafts to hit the raging rapids, or taking the gondolas up the mountains to ski down the snowy pistes outside Bariloche.


Argentina: snowy winters and sizzling summers

The weather differs greatly from north to south. In the depths of southern Patagonia, the long cold winters make travel a little tricky, while the extreme north's dry deserts have sizzling summers. In a nutshell, the crowds and lofty prices reach their peak during the summer months in January and February, as does the temperature, which often breaks into the high 80s. If you're looking to hit the trails, your best bet is in spring and fall, when the climate is much more agreeable, and the Argentina vacation rental prices drop off, along with the hordes of travelers.

Natural features

The highlight of Argentina

The highlight and the very reason for visiting Argentina for many is the astonishing wildlife spotting opportunities. If you score an Argentina vacation rental near the Valdes Peninsula, you can get up close to fluking whales, orcas and playful dolphins. The tropical jungles around the mighty Iguazu Falls teem with native toucans showing off their colorful beaks, jaguars which slink around the forest floor and howler monkeys whose haunting call can be heard more than 3 miles away. There's a whole host of birdlife in every corner of this magnificent country.
