Astonishing Argentina: Glaciers, Waterfalls, and Tango all in one country

Buenos Aires is known as the Paris of the South but Argentina has so much more to offer than the European influenced town of Buenos Aires (BA). I loved BA and the culture and the people but I loved El Calafate/Patagonia and Iguazu Falls even more. BA has such a romantic feel through the streets and showcased in their love for food, dancing, and wine. The steak was absolutely the best I’ve ever had and the Italian food was as good as Italy! The migration of Italian and Spanish families in the late 1800s is definitely showcased in so many aspects in the country’s lifestyle.

The adventures in the small town of El Calafate were something I will cherish forever. I am not a fan of cold weather but seeing Perito Moreno glacier for the first time and its sheer size and beauty will make you forget the temperature. Trekking for two hours on the glaciers was definitely not a walk in the park but it was one of the most adventurous and incredible experiences I’ve ever had!

The last stop was Iguazu Falls at the border of Argentina and Brazil. These falls were in a rain forest and were visually 10 times larger than Niagara Falls. It was incredible to see how all the different falls come together but are unique from different vantage points. The boat ride in the falls is scary and exhilarating and totally worth it!
