Just two hours further than Europe and a four hour time difference from the west coast, Argentina is a cultured, vastly varied, stunning, travel destination.  Argentines are sophisticated, energetic cosmopolitan people with a rich European-style way of life.  English is spoken widely and locals are proud and eager to share the beauties of their country to tourists.  Activities that beckon are horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, condor watching in Patagonia, vineyard tending, wine tasting, cooking classes, in Mendoza, sightseeing the many neighborhoods of Buenos Aires with unique shopping, spending an evening in a malonga, learning to tango and enjoying dining and dancing.
