Argentina continues to be one of South America’s hottest destinations. You’ll want to start in Buenos Aires, of course. But don’t begin and end your trip in the capital. Here are four more amazing spots to add to your itinerary.
Buenos Aires: Find three great hotels in three of the most popular neighborhoods—including Puerto Madero, Recoleta, and Palermo Hollywood—of Argentina’s hip capital.
Cañuelas: Take a day trip to get out of your comfort zone, travel to the countryside, spend the day with the ponies, and eat an outdoor lunch with lots of Malbec just 60 miles outside of Buenos Aires.
Iberá Wetlands: Wake up really early in a cute cottage, board a four-wheel-drive jeep, grab a pair of binoculars, and head toward an overflowing lake to see greater rheas, endangered pampas deer, capybaras, and dinosaur-like caimáns on a safari-style excursion.
Uco Valley: Drive down a dirt road, pass orchards full of quinces and pears, watch a slow-moving river, gaze at high mountains partially obscured by low-hanging clouds, and taste more than just Malbecs in the Uco Valley.
San Carlos de Bariloche: Escape to a gorgeous area to ski, hike, sail, and sample chocolate in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.
