About this book

Vast and vibrant Argentina has it all - adventure, culture, luxury, scenery - and it's still great value. From eating beefsteak in Buenos Aires to drinking Malbec in Mendoza, from the tango rhythms of town to remote landscapes and hidden gems, this second edition of the most in-depth guide on the market provides the necessary practical and background information to take visitors beyond the tourist haunts. The guide covers all the unmissable experiences from horseback trekking through the Andes to watching penguins, seals and whales on the Valdes Peninsula.

'Bradt Guides are the favourites of travellers who wish not merely to see but to understand.' Dervla Murphy 'Bradt guides take you to the farthest corners of every country and are written in an opinionated, pleasing to read manner that make the books as much as a novel as guide. The Argentina book is no different with a plethora of long, narrative passages and fine background information.'
