Argentina

 
With 4.2 million tourists annually, Argentina rank as number 43 in the world of countries with most international tourist arrivals.
 
 
Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is constituted as a federation of twenty-three provinces and an autonomous city (Buenos Aires).

It is second in size, after Brazil, in South America and eight in the world. The population in 2008 is 40.7 million (estimate) and the biggest town is the capital, Buenos Aires, which, with a population of 12.4 million in Greater Buenos Aires, makes it one of the largest conurbations in the world.
 

The official language is Spanish, but there are many ethnic groups like Italian, German, Jewish, Welsh, Irish and others.

Argentina has many tourist attractions. To the north of Buenos Aires, you can visit the Iguazu Falls, which is one of the best natural wanders in the world. The waterfall comprises of about 270 falls along 2.7 kilometers.
 
 
Patagonia is one of the largest regions in Argentina, located to the south. You can find whales, penguins, seals and sea lions in Peninsula Valdes, the biggest wildlife preserve in Argentina. Also visit the world renowned national parks in El Calafate and Tierra del Fuego.

Mendoza
 is the ideal destination for the lovers and admirers of wine and food. It also offers remarkable sights in and around the Andes Mountains, and the wine regions located in the western sides of Mendoza are truly picturesque.

Salta
 is located in the northern region of Argentina and is the region where the weather conditions remain stable the whole year round.

One of the favorite vacation destinations for many local Argentineans as well as the international tourists is the Atlantic coastline of Argentina. It remains at its best in the months of summer.

Because of longitudinal and elevation amplitudes, Argentina is subject to a variety of climates. As a rule, the climate is predominantly temperate with extremes ranging from subtropical in the north to sub polar in the far south. The north of the country is characterized by very hot, humid summers with mild drier winters, and is subject to periodic droughts. Central Argentina has hot summers with thunderstorms (in western Argentina producing some of the world's largest hail), and cool winters. The southern regions have warm summers and cold winters with heavy snowfall, especially in mountainous zones.
