Hidden Gems and Must-See Locations of Argentina

It’s that time of the year again when you finally get to plan your vacation for the year-end with family, loved ones, or friends. 

One of the most popular destinations that’s been ranked among the best places to visit in 2022 is Argentina – so if that’s where you’re headed in the near future then you’ve made the right choice!

Argentina is a huge country, and can take weeks to fully explore and truly experience. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t experience the best parts of Argentina even if you’re only going to be staying there for a few days. 

The trick is to create a flawless itinerary that covers the best places, and follow through with it without fail. This way, you’re guaranteed to truly experience the best of Argentina in all its beauty. Without further ado, here are some of the most common (and uncommon places) that you need to visit in Argentina, whether you’re traveling solo or with family. Happy journey!

Puerto Madryn

Are you a beach person who feels most alive when you’re near the sea and can feel the breeze washing away all your worries and stress? If yes, then this is a place that won’t disappoint you and needs to be on top of your list.

Puerto Madryn is a seaside town in Argentina and draws in both locals and tourists every year because of the stunning view of the ocean, the fresh air, and the exotic wildlife that surrounds the area.

If you love the ocean and sea life, you wouldn’t want to miss out on whale watching, where you’ll be given a tour from the mainland where you can watch whales gather to meet and mate, especially between the months of July to September.

If you aren’t much of a whale person, don’t fret because there are roughly around 180 species of birds that live here, making it a bird-watchers paradise. All you need is a pair of binoculars and you’ll be occupied for hours.

But don’t worry, if you have kids and need to engage yourself in family activities, there are tons of seafood restaurants all over the town, so you’ll be able to experience different cuisines while also getting to shop from the local markets.

Buenos Aires

This happens to be one of the most happening cities in Argentina where tourists go to enjoy the rich culture and cuisine of the country. Right from the most beautiful city street art to splendid colonial buildings and museums, you’ll be able to capture the most memorable pictures in this city with your loved ones and family.

Apart from the beauty of the city, you’ll also have a chance to visit numerous cafes, art galleries, museums, mansions, boulevards, boutique shops, and gardens. One of the best ways to truly make the most of your visit here is to learn Spanish with experienced tutors a few weeks before your trip, as this will allow you to truly gel well with the natives and understand the history of the place wherever you go.

Mendoza

To finish off, Mendoza will give you a combination of breathtaking beauty and luxurious comfort. Deemed to be one of the most beautiful cities in Argentina, you’ll be able to either go skiing or hiking or biking, depending on when you choose to visit the city.

Other outdoor activities that you can participate in along with your family are horse riding sessions, night adventures, river rafting, train riding, and camping.

Combining all the 3 places mentioned above will allow you to fully get a taste of all of Argentina, especially if you’re traveling with your family.
