If you’ve ever flirted with the idea of escaping to exotic, culturally-rich South America, learning the local language, mastering the tango, and perhaps staying a little longer than you really ought to – be warned, Argentina will steal your heart.
The friendly locals were a standout for me. They genuinely want you to have a good time.
In most social situations I was greeted with a single kiss on the cheek, the perfect representation of how welcoming they are.
Floreria Atlantico bar in Buenos Aires appears to be your typical flower shop from the street, but inside you’ll find a secret freezer door, which leads down to the basement where the bar is. With intricate craft cocktails you’ll be charmed by this speakeasy-style venue. It’s a popular spot with locals, so booking ahead is a must.
Bordering Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls are the largest waterfall system in the world. The falls are great during the day, but seeing them at night is an experience I will never forget.
When I went, it coincided with a full moon and I was able to do a moonlight tour of the park. This is one of the few places in the world where ‘‘moonbows’’ (lunar rainbows) are frequently seen. Experiencing this natural phenomenon in a place of such beauty was unforgettable.
