Argentina is the second largest country in South America, behind Brazil. Its capital, Buenos Aires, is a popular tourist destination, offering visitors a wide gambit of attractions, from cultural tours ranging from the Obelisk to the La Bombonera stadium, home to the Boca Juniors football team. Patagonia is another region that is very popular with tourists as well as the city of Ushuaia and the El Calafate region, home to very cold weather and jaw-dropping landscapes, perfect to observe penguins and sea lions. The Glaciares National Park, with its enormous glaciers, is also well worth a visit. To add a little flavour to your trip, the most famous dish is chorizo steak, a succulent cut almost the size of the plate it’s served on, the empanadas and the all-conquering alfajor.
