Description

Vast and vibrant Argentina has it all - adventure, culture, luxury, scenery - and it's still great value. From eating beefsteak in Buenos Aires to drinking Malbec in Mendoza, from the tango rhythms of town to remote landscapes and hidden gems, this second edition of the most in-depth guide on the market provides the necessary practical and background information to take visitors beyond the tourist haunts. The guide covers all the unmissable experiences from horseback trekking through the Andes to watching penguins, seals and whales on the Valdes Peninsula. Bradt's Argentina details many small-scale, offbeat and sustainable projects for those interested in culturally-sensitive, eco-friendly travel.
