DESTINATIONS • ARGENTINA

INTRODUCTIONS

Argentina is the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world and offers great diversity of landscapes, climates, and cultural expressions: high mountain ranges and hills, rainforest and desserts, woodland and valleys, glaciers and canyons, waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes, rivers, and a sea cost with vast beaches, cliffs, and sea biodiversity. Together with these landscapes, the population is also diverse, which is shown in their rich traditions and habits. Buenos Aires, its capital city, shines brightly with its European touch, as one of the most interesting and alluring cities in Latin America.

Geography

The Argentine relief is typically characterized by a deep contrast posed by Eastern plains and the magnificent western Andes mountain range, which is praised for its highest peak of the Western hemisphere, namely the Aconcagua, which is 6,959 meters high.

This mountain range extends from the province of Jujuy to Tierra del Fuego, and shows an incredible variety of landscapes: from the Northeastern plateau-dessert, valleys, gaps and colorful hills-to the region of lakes, woods, and glaciers in the Patagonia.

Nestled between the Parana and Uruguay rivers, the Argentine Mesopotamia (comprised by the province of Entre Ríos, the former limits of these long rivers) is featured by low slopes, lagoons and estuaries. In some sectors, in the subtropical rainforest some land fractures are produced allowing for spectacular waterfalls as the Iguazu Falls.

In central Argentina, the Pampas region is the most known and widest plain area, with intensively agriculture and livestock farming activity, covering the provinces of Buenos Aires, Northeast of the province of La Pampa and South of Córdoba and Santa Fe. To the West, the landscape is interrupted by the Cordoba mountain ranges.

To the South of the Andes to the sea, the barren and stony pathogenic depressions lashed by the strong winds most of the year prevail. The Atlantic coastline, edged by high cliffs draws winding shapes such as the Valdés Peninsula, with its incredible view of sea animals resting on the coast.

POPULATION

The current population of Argentina exceeds 40 million inhabitants, and around a third part of which is established in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires: The Federal Capital City and Greater Buenos Aires. This figure shows a population density of 14 inhabitants per km2.
