One of the most visited cities in all Latin America, Buenos Aires is a lively cosmopolitan metropolis that sits close to the Rio de la Plata, the river that forms part of the border between Argentina and Uruguay.
From the rugged streets of La Boca and cobbled roads of San Telmo to the European-inspired architecture of Recoleta, Buenos Aires surprises at every turn.
The city is renowned for the tango dance-style that originated here, music and art festivals and a thriving nightlife, with bars and clubs open until the early hours nearly every day of the week. Be sure to sample the local cuisine; the province produces some of the finest beef in the world and it would be a shame to leave the city without trying a choripan!
Located in the Argentinian province of Santa Cruz, El Calafate is a small city that borders Lake Argentino and is within close range to the world-famous Los Glaciares National Park.
With a population of just over 6,000, the town has a village-like atmosphere and, like the nearby municipality of El Chalten, remains in existence mainly due to tourism and its proximity to the various mountains and glaciers in the region. Interestingly, the city is named after a local bush that produces berries, which are said to guarantee your return to Patagonia should they eaten.
El Calafate is regarded as a gateway to the nearby national park, where visitors can experience and see a number of enormous glaciers up close, including the iconic Perito Moreno glacier.
