Are you looking for one of the best recreation spots on the planet? If so, you may want to give some consideration to Argentina; a South American country famous for its diverse wildlife, unique atmosphere, dramatic water scenes and artful Islands. Not only that, but you can also find plenty of exotic attractions too. In an effort to make your itinerary as memorable as possible, I have compiled an extensive list to help guide you through this fun and entertaining terrain.

Before you go though, it is important to make sure you’re up to date on all vaccinations including—but not limited too—MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Varicella, Hepatitis, Yellow Fever, Rabies, etc. Given the immense variety of Obamacare health care options available, seeing a doctor should definitely become a priority before leaving. A memorable trip to Argentina shouldn’t be speckled with sickness, vomiting, and overall uncomfortableness.

Natural Wonders:

Argentina is literally brimming with many natural wonders, which is why it has gradually become a tourist hotspot. A good way to start your trip is by visiting the alluring Iguazu Falls, which possesses an almost mesmerizing quality because of its clamoring mammoth waterfall. If you want to enjoy the Iguazu Falls completely, then you must take a walk on the footbridge, which allows you to capture exotic images of the waterfall, while immersing you within a pleasant, misty environment. You can also enjoy water-related activities such as the Wild Adventure, boat ride tours, diving, swimming and so on. Up next is the Perito Moreno Glacier, where you literally become engulfed within a snowy wonderland.

It is on the Perito Moreno Glacier that you can find spectacular gullies, crevasses, glacier streams, small lagoons, and truly magnificent icicle displays. Yet another natural wonder in Argentina is the Los Glaciers National Park, which not only is a wonderful place to walk on the ice (wearing cleats of course), but you can also find the Monte Fitz Roy Mountain. The Monte Fitz Roy Mountain is one of the best places for trekking, mountain climbing, and so on. If the adventurous activities were not enough, then it might be worth a visit simply to enjoy the awesome climate and amiable weather.

The Quebrada de Humahuaca is one of the more notable Argentinian valleys, located in the northwest Argentina province. There you can also find the wonderful Calchaquí Valleys, Iberá Wetlands, and more.

Man-Made Attractions:

While there are several fantastic natural wonders in Argentina, you can also enjoy a number of spectacular man-made attractions, as well. Coming up first is Plaza Dorrego, which is one of the more attractive plazas, located in the heart of San Telmo. Another popular attraction is the Obelisco de Buenos Aires, which is not only a spectacular site, but also a national historic monument, showing the pride and glory of Argentina.

You can also find the La Recoleta Cemetery situated in Recoleta. From there, you should make it a priority to visit the Buenos Aires House of Culture, where you can experience first-hand the fantastic culture of Argentina. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit all the other man-made attractions such as the Argentine National Congress, Congressional Plaza, Buenos Aires Cabildo, and Casa Rosada. These are the “must visit” spots in Argentina.

Shopping and Food in Argentina:

After all the exotic adventure, you can relax and enjoy more recreational activities. If you plan to do a lot of shopping you must visit the Alto Palermo mall, Abasto Shopping, Galerías Pacífico, Patio Bullrich and Paseo Alcorta. It is within these malls that you can buy many of the latest fashionable and trendy items. You can also taste the delicious beef-based food, and I say beef because Argentina is famous for its beef-oriented dishes.

So enjoy the wonders of the Argentina by including the above mentioned spots in your trip and have fun over there.
