Argentina Travel Guide

Argentina, a large, federal republic located in the southern part of South America, is known for tango, steak and football. The name ''Argentina'' derives from ''argentinos'', the Ancient Greek diminutive (tinos) form for silver (argentos), which is what early Spanish explorers sought when they first reached the region in the sixteenth century.

Its big, cosmopolitan capital, Buenos Aires (the most fascinating of all South American capitals), is known for its European atmosphere, passionate tango and vibrant nightlife. A vast and varied land, Argentina is the most American of all European countries and the most European of all American countries, and is a land bursting with adventure!
