Argentina is blessed with dramatic landscapes, immense potential and a variety of experiences that run the gamut from outdoor adventure to cosmopolitan style. It's famous for the gauchos and plains of Patagonia, world-class trout and salmon fishing, glacier skiing in the Andes and the European sophistication of its bustling capital, Buenos Aires.
The country went through economic instability and hyperinflation in the 1990s, then de-linked from the U.S. dollar and restructured its finances. While inflation is a cause for concern for Argentines, it very much works in the favor of tourists. That means visiting Argentina can be one of the best values anywhere: First-world infrastructure for the most part, along with food, wine and service with a unique blend of European culture, North American drive and a laid-back Latin American attitude.
