It has become cliche to say that Argentina is as much European as it is Latin; yet to arrive in Buenos Aires and discover this is actually true still surprises. Argentina is so much more than this. With the Patagonian Andes as its glacial backbone, it is a land of extreme wilderness, while its vast pampas are still home to roaming gauchos - the original South American cowboys. Had enough of the wild? The birthplace of the tango and the world's 5th largest wine producer has enough high culture to satisfy the most discerning palate, plus a nightlife to match.
