Though Buenos Aires has been nicknamed “the Paris of South America,” it hardly does justice to this large and impressive country to only visit its capital city. Rather, much of Argentina’s beauty can be found in its varied countryside, which ranges from glacier-filled Patagonia to wine country and stunning national parks. For hikers, wine-lovers, and pure adventure travelers, there’s little in the world like it. Still, we won’t judge if you do head back to Buenos Aires for an extended stay. This classic and iconic city offers endless pleasures, whether you dance at a tango club or explore its chic shops.
