From the activity of her cities to the allure of her countryside, Argentina demands all five senses to be truly enjoyed. So go ahead: taste her tantalizing food, feel a waterfall’s mist, smell the fruity depth of a Malbec, listen to the thrumming cadence of an Argentina guitar, and experience the best Argentina Christmas.
Buenos Aires – Arrival in Argentina
Land in Buenos Aires this morning and drop off your bags at your perfectly located and luxurious hotel before setting out to discover this vibrant world capital, one of the greatest on the continent. The city is broken down into barrios, or neighborhoods, each with their own feel, flavor, and identity contributing to the diverse but seemingly constant grandeur of Buenos Aires. Experience the hustle and bustle of Microcentro, relax at a colorful and comfortable parilla in La Boca, or simply stroll through Recoleta, from the verdant expanses to the excellent restaurants, and even including a cemetery that is well worth a visit. Dinner is always a festive fare, and because almost all of the ingredients are local, the prices are surprisingly low at even the most highly regarded Buenos Aires eateries.

Argentina is a country filled with romance and adventure, fierce loves and fiery passions, all set to the strains of a nylon stringed guitar strumming the beat of its national dance. This 10-day holiday voyage will showcase all the highlights of northern Argentina, and while Christmas may be in the middle of summer, you’ll find that this type of yuletide is one you could get used to.
Lose yourself in the great and verdant splendor of Iguazu Falls, from the Devil’s Throat to any number of minor cataracts boasted by the borderlands of Argentina and Brazil. Treat yourself to an oenophilic feast of wine, beef, and delicacies in Mendoza, the heart of the Argentinian wine region and one of the new premier destinations in gastro-travel in the world. Then celebrate the holiday in Buenos Aires, perhaps the most beautiful city in the Americas, where tree-lined streets and elegant hotels and office buildings comingle with the heat of a local grill and the beat in an underground tango club.
The rapid flurry of Castellano, the driving pulse of a late-night dance club, the languid, feast-filled days and the flurry of nightlife in one of Latin America’s hippest cities, all of it is here in magnificent Argentina. Come to escape the dreary winter of Christmases in the North for an end-of-year celebration in the middle of summer, along the rise of waterfalls or above the grape-filled valley of wine country, with nothing on your mind but the transcendent beauty of this incomparable country. With all this to offer and more, you might want to change your holiday plans with the in-laws.
