In recent years, Argentina has grown in popularity as a tourist hotspot, attracting visitors from all over the world. Perhaps the extreme diversity that the country offers is one reason why people are flocking to this corner of the globe, taking advantage of the fact that a trip to Argentina is like a hundred different holidays in one. From the northernmost to southernmost tips, Argentina spans a massive 3, 800km and covers an area of 2,776,890 sq km, making it the eighth largest country in the world and the second largest in Latin America.
Argentina and neighbouring country Chile, which occupies a thin slice of the same region, are found at the southernmost extreme of South America and are unparalleled in their exceptional geographical diversity. To the west you will find the Andes, one of the longest mountain ranges in the world extending 4,500 miles throughout South America. Argentina is home to Anconcagua, the highest peak in all of Latin America. Whilst to the North East you can witness the world famous Iguazú Falls. The central valley houses the agricultural centre of the country and if you head further southwards you can explore the beautiful Argentine lake district, before venturing into Patagonia and crossing over to Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) and experiencing extreme weather conditions, glaciers and icebergs.
Argentina has a population of over 40 million, and the Argentines themselves are a further reflection of the diversity of their homeland. Unlike other South American countries, Argentina is far more heavily populated by people of European descent (86%), than those of mestizo, indian or indigenous origin. This gives Argentina a distinctly different feel to it, especially in Buenos Aires city and province, where half of the country's population reside.
