Your Argentina journey will begin today as you board an international outbound flight to Buenos Aires. Your private guide will meet you at the airport and will escort you to your lavish hotel in the heart of the city. After check-in, you can relax in the comforts of your hotel room to get prepared for your 6-day Argentina tour.
Buenos Aires is not only the capital city of Argentina but is also one of the cultural capitals of Latin America. World-known for its stunning art, music, theatre, dance, and lively nightlife, Buenos Aires neither sleeps nor gets tired ever! A day is too less to explore much of this rich and complex metropolis, however, it is safe to say that you definitely will enjoy spending your entire day in this amazing Argentine capital.
When it comes to sightseeing, Buenos Aires is definitely a place to be experienced rather than seen, and so it is worthwhile taking a day to wander around the various neighborhoods, especially Palermo Soho and Hollywood and San Telmo. From San Telmo, you can mark your way to the most famous sites downtown, such as the government palace of the Casa Rosada, the Obelisco, the cathedral and the Plaza de Mayo. You can also head towards the river and explore the lavishly modern neighborhood of Puerto Madero as well as the natural oasis of the Reserva Ecologica.
At night, you may like going to a tango show and get your fix of tango, including a three-course meal, or a milonga dancehall where the locals dance into the wee hours.
In complete contrast to the madness of the urbane Buenos Aires, today you'll be taking a short plane ride north to the small town of Iguazu, which happens to be the home to the popular Iguazu Falls. This majestic collection of about 250 waterfalls is a UNESCO World Heritage site which sure is going to make you amused with its beauty!
The falls separates the border between Argentina and Brazil, and each side has a different kind of offering to its visitors.
On the Argentine side, you’ll have the pleasure to wander through the Misiones jungle with the roar of the falling water surrounding you and witness monkeys and coatis as you go. However, be careful not to try and touch them, as they can bite and scratch you. At some of the points, you will find yourself directly under the falls, so prepare to get wet. On this side, you can also opt to take a boat trip which will bring you right into the splash of the falls themselves.
Though Iguazu is a sleepy town, but do check out the food market towards the edge of the town up the hill from the Siete Esquinas junction for having a truly local experience.
As you are in Northern Argentina, why not take advantage of the proximity to the Northwest provinces of Salta and Jujuy?! Given to its close proximity to Bolivia, this area is the most indigenous in the country and has a quite different culture as well as atmosphere than anywhere else in Argentina.
The city of Salta is a scenic, colonial affair, having a heavy emphasis on religious structures and regional culture in terms of handicrafts and food. As you’ll take the cable car up to the top of the mountain, you will be treated to panoramic views of the city and its surrounding mountains. While you are in Salta, make sure to sample some of the locally fried empanadas at Patio de las Empanadas and visit a Pena, which is a music venue where musicians play and sing folklore music.
Today morning, when you are ready, you’ll fly back to Buenos Aires and further catch an international flight back home to complete your Argentina journey with some amazing memories in your backpack for the New Year!
