Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide Argentina is an essential guide to the second-largest country in South America, brought to life with hundreds of evocative photographs. Our inspirational Best of Argentina section highlights the country’s unmissable sights and experiences, while a comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip, and our selective listings bring you the best hotels and restaurants.

Lavish magazine-style features offer a unique insight into life in Argentina, from the architecture of Buenos Aires and a day on an estancia to vineyards in the Mendoza region. A detailed Places section, with full-color maps cross-referenced to the lively narrative, guides you around the country, from the barrios of the capital Buenos Aires to the remote wilderness of Patagonia.
