Spreading nearly 3,000 miles down the backbone of South America, Argentina is a vast country with many ecosystems--lush subtropical jungle, vast grasslands, and stony, sub-Antarctic Patagonia--that draw ecotourists from all over the world.

Argentina also reflects Latin American and European influences through its architecture and the arts. When classes are over, go enjoy some of the Argentine national passions: polo, beef, tango bars, and soccer matches.

If you love outdoor adventures, Argentina offers trekking, mountain-biking, skiing, mountaineering, and whitewater rafting.
