Many adjectives were used to describe Argentina during the last few hundred years and many of them were checked out, and found to be tried and true by millions of tourists travelling and spending their holiday in this country. Argentina is one of the few countries that there is still a lot to discover in this peaceful land.
While flying over the Río de la Plata (Silver River), if you look down at the river, it seems to be a small sea followed by an immense wave of housing and buildings which is the city called Buenos Aires, which shows a little of the diversity of this country. Behind Buenos Aires the wideness of the horizon is endless.
It is with its 2,780,400 square metres of territory, the eighth largest country in the world. With a length of 3,700 km and width of 1,450 km, it covers a large part of South America and offers a great diversity of landscapes, terrains and climatic circumstances. These qualities are shared with only a few more other countries.
With it's dimensions seeming almost endless, Pampa is sure to impress its visitors. The Andes in the background, seem to be a wide, long, natural wall. The tropical forests in the north reach far into other countries of South America. In the south you will encounter the region of Patagonia which reaches as far as the mysterious Tierra de Fuego (Land of Fire).
The capital, Buenos Aires, is 35km from the international airportEzeiza, a worldwide huge melting pot that is one of the biggest and most populated cities in the world. The locals are very friendly and outgoing. Argentina is still one of the classic immigration countries and much cheaper than most of its counterparts. For the price of a sandwich in Western Europe, you will be able to savour a steak or undertake an excursion by bus to one of the memorable sites. Here one can have the pleasure of practising sports or make excursions or get the leisuretime organised. Nightlife is a formidable force in the big cities and for nature lovers, there is plenty to see away from the hustle and bustle of metropolis.
