Why we love Argentina

Blessed with vast areas of outstanding natural beauty, and with a capital city amongst the coolest in the world, Argentina is a superb place to visit.
The country is huge - stretching from the southernmost province of Tierra del Fuego to the Tropic of Capricorn in the north, and a wild Atlantic coastline in the east to the western plateau of the Andes - meaning it provides many epic adventures.
Go wild in Argentina and you will discover penguins, condors, flamingos, pumas, armadillos, and many more species as you explore mountains, lakes, lush groves, icebergs, waterfalls, jungles and forest in the wonderful network of parks and reserves.
Buenos Aires is great for fashion, shopping, its thriving nightlife, and diverse architecture, as well as some good old people-watching. Argentina’s other main cities are also worth checking out; such as Cordoba, Salta, Rosario, and Ushuaia, which is the world’s most southerly city and enjoys a beautiful waterfront vista.

Finding the right accommodation

San Juan has so many things that you won’t be resting much. But when there is no other choice, you can rest, and do it the best way.
The city of San Juan has many options to stay, from typical bungalows (commonly called "cabañas") to five-star hotels. Whether you're thinking of a budget trip or a luxury stay, San Juan is offering a large number of options.

Exploring San Juan

Parque Provincial Ischigualasto (Valle de la Luna) offers an extraordinary landscape, in which the shortage of vegetation, the variety in colors of the dusty ground and the shape of rocks and mounts make it one of the most attractive places for tourists, both national and international.  
Also, Embalse Ullum, is with no doubt one of the top tourist appeals of San Juan province. In it, one can enjoy multiple water sports as well as adventure sports all around. 
Barreal Blanco "Pampa del Leoncito" is a huge sweep of lake sediments with no vegetation that is characterized for a constant wind with gust speed up to 100kph.

Tips for visiting San Juan

Argentines are famous for their love of meat, especially beef cooked on the grill (parrilla).
The Argentine parrillada or asado is a barbecue of grilled meats cooked over an open fire, with beef, pork, ribs and sausages all on the menu, typically accompanied by the delicious chimichurri sauce and best served with a glass of wine.
Savory or sweet empanadas (pies or pasties), grilled Provoleta cheese and dulce de leche on your dessert add to the calorie count!
Yerba mate is a herbal-infusion - often drunk communally - and is another must-try on the Argentine menu.
