No wonder Buenos Aires - capital of Argentina - is called the "Paris of South America".

At the same time, is the land of polo, soccer, tango, mate and steaks the size of a hot water bottle.

So big that you might seek partnership before attacking one of them. Ask for a "bife de chorizo" or "parrillada" and you will agree with us.

Your Argentina travel experience wouldn't be completed until you try "empanadas", "locro" and "humita", that goes back to the times when the epic gaucho roamed the Pampas with his horse and guitar as sole companions.

Italian and Spanish food is also tremendously popular, from pizza to paella, and everything in between.
