Tango. Malbec. The niagara falls of the southern hemisphere (maybe better?). What more could you want?
Buenos Aires is undoubtedly the Latin American city that most closely resembles the cosmopolitan and aristocratic atmosphere of the big European capitals. You will see the multi-colored tin houses of La Boca and popular tango ambience that thrives on the steets of San Telmo. The trek highligt will be the majestic Argentine Falls and the Iguassu National Park, which has been declared a World Natural Heritage site (UNESCO).
