Is Argentina Worth Visiting?

Argentina, nestled on the southeast tip of South America, is a land known for its diverse geographical splendors, dynamic culture, and rich history. This vibrant nation features a stunning contrast between the soaring Andean peaks, lush rainforests of the Gran Chaco, the arid Atacama Desert, the expansive grasslands of Pampas, and the frosty glaciers of Patagonia. Home to the sultry Argentine tango, mouth-watering asado barbecues, and high-quality Malbec wines, it also boasts bustling cities such as its capital Buenos Aires, often referred to as the 'Paris of South America'. Impressive colonial architecture, the passionate football culture, and the iconic gaucho (cowboy) heritage are among the highlights that make Argentina a captivating destination for travelers worldwide.

Solo travel experience

I traveled to Bariloche, and I felt safe as a solo traveller. The weather was not very cooperative, but I managed to see wonderful places. Cerro Campanario has the best views by far. It is easy and cheap to take bus 20 from the center. I would also recommend to visit the Llao Llao cafeteria for gorgeous views. To enjoy the lakes I would recommend a boat tour to Bosque de Arrayanes. The food was great. Argentina has the best meat in the world, but also yummy cakes and chocolates. For best ice cream I recommend Mamushka.

Solo travel experience

I went to Argentina alone. I embarked on a combined horseback and hiking expedition in the Patagonia region, with a several-day stay in Buenos Aires. I felt very safe. The locals advised me to stay away from a certain area of Buenos Aires, but all the time, throughout the country, I felt very comfortable. It's beautiful and the food is great.

Solo travel experience

I went to Mendoza and visited the vineyards. Then I went to Cordoba and went on a walking tour. Next, Puerto Iguazu, where I crossed the border with Brazil to see the waterfall from both sides (the Argentine side is better, but both are amazing - I could spend a few days there). Then I went to Buenos Aires and I really liked it there. I went on walking tours, visited markets, and enjoyed tango lessons. I crossed the border into Uruguay for a few days. I was travelling alone, using public buses.

Argentina is a very cool country and there are many places to visit. Jujuy, Salta, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza, Bariloche. Buenos Aires and Cordoba were my favorite cities. You need to have cash, as not all places accept credit cards. I traveled alone and didn't have any problems, but it's not the safest country I've visited.

I stayed in Buenos Aires for 3 days. It was sufficient for me. Great city. Then I flew to Bariloche. From there, I took a bus south to Patagonia. I met other women and we spent time together. I loved Patagonia.

Solo travel experience

I went to Ushuaia, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, and Mendoza in Argentina, and then I took a ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay and spent the weekend there, and then about a week in Montevideo. I never felt unsafe - I stayed with an old friend in Montevideo, though I mostly roamed around alone.

Solo travel experience

I loved Argentina. Mendoza, for its beautiful views of the countryside (don't miss Aconcagua) and plenty of vineyards. Ushuaia - the end of the world and the "penguin island". Calafate for the Glacier National Park. Buenos Aires is such a wonderful city in every way - there is so much to do and see. Salta/Jujuy for Puramarca (hill of seven colors), Tilcara, Humahuaca, Salt Flats.

Beautiful places, great hikes, and lots of nature. Also many small charming towns that you can simply wander around. Very safe while traveling alone, and I did almost everything by (night) buses.
