Overview


While many visitors to Argentina are seeking the urban vibe of Buenos Aires, complete with a reasonably priced first- class steak and a chance to experience tango or soccer at its ultimate, the country offers a wide range of scenery and vacation choices. From the hippy hangout in the valley of El Bolson to the brash busy beach scene at Mar del Plata to Bariloche, one of the main tourist destinations where lakes and mountains offer an array of outdoor sports, Time Out's local journalists cover it all. Embrace your inner gaucho and saddle up in the Argentinian pampas or choose from peaceful isolated pine-fringed sands or seaside city resorts, all covered in this guide. We help you navigate the region as a local would, sharing insider tips on dining,shopping and where to find the best local artisans.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Booksmack!
Why is Uruguay in small letters on the cover? Oh, right, because no dude in his right mind would go there! You can't even spell this red-headed stepchild of a country. This book's pictures, however, are magnificent. Even the Queen of the Empanadas with her freaky-ass hat (p. 133) won't scare you away. The only book that seems to correlate the amount of its coverage with the significance of the region, this is useful, but not packed with details. It's the Chelsea Handler of Argentinean guidebooks: brassy and sexy but in need of some refinement. Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes", Booksmack!, 12/2/10
