Argentina is the 2nd largest country in South America. It has a population of 40 million and approximately one third live in the capital, Buenos Aires. In such a massive area, the geography is immense and diverse, with an extremely varied climate. From the hot and dry northwest to the thunderous glaciers of Patagonia, from the staggering Andes mountain range to the fertile Pampas, it’s possible to find and do everything in this land of contrasts. Argentina houses several of the world’s natural wonders including the highest peak in the Americas, Aconcagua, and the impressive Iguazu Falls. Argentina must-tries include tasting some of the world’s best meat and wine, dancing a seductive Tango and drinking the addictive mate, a traditional tea drunk from a gourd with a metal straw.
Chile is situated in the Southeast corner of South America, squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. The country is only 240km across at its widest point, but being more than 4200 km long, it has an impressive range of geography and climate. In the extreme north you can find the most arid desert in the world, whereas towards the centre the environment changes completely into fertile lands, beautiful beaches and stunning mountains with excellent skiing. The south is the area of lakes, forests and volcanoes, until you arrive at the ancient glaciers of Patagonia and Antarctica. Chile also has plenty of attractions off-shore, like Easter Island and its surrounding treasures, Robinson Crusoe with its unique fauna and vegetation, and Chiloé, a place full of mystery and special folklore.
Uruguay is located by the Atlantic Ocean between Argentina and Brazil. It spans 600 km from north to south and 500 km from east to west, being one of the smallest of the South American republics. Its population is about 3 million inhabitants; half of which live in the capital, Montevideo. Its 500 km (300 miles) of fine sandy beaches, forests, hills, hot springs, art festivals, numerous opportunities for sport and entertainment and above all its people, make of Uruguay an ideal place to visit all year round. Don’t miss the Uruguayan "chivito", must-eat sandwich that you can have only in Uruguay.
