Argentina

Argentina stretches 5,000 km (3,000 miles) from north to south. In the north, the vegetation is tropical and sub-tropical. In the central area, near Buenos Aires, the climate is temperate, like Southern Ontario or New York state. In the pampas or plains of the western part of central Argentina, the countryside recalls the American west, with beef production a major industry. Patagonia in the far south is like no other place on earth, with monumental glaciers tumbling into mountain lakes and vegetation becoming more and more sparse as you travel south.

Argentina, with a population of 37 million, is one of the three major countries of Latin America, the others being Brazil and Mexico. The major city is the capital, Buenos Aires. Most travellers think that Argentina is very similar to Europe. In any Argentinian city, there are many descendents of British, French, German and Italian immigrants
