Fodor’s Choice Argentina

The most captivating women, the best footballers, the juiciest steaks — Buenos Aires is a city awash in superlatives. But what about the rest of Argentina? Few travelers make it out of the capital to the sunny wine regions of San Rafael and Mendoza, and though mountaineers know Everest and the Matterhorn, do they know much about Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the western hemisphere, near the Chilean border? Everyone’s heard of Tierra del Fuego, an island literally at the bottom of the world, but how many travelers can hold forth on its starkly beautiful city, Ushuaia? Argentina is a realm of endless natural variety and rare beauty. Isn’t it time you take a look?
