Your Destinations

Buenos Aires

The city of Buenos Aires is the capital of the Argentine Republic and is located in the southern hemisphere. Including the metropolitan area, the total population of Buenos Aires is above ten million, making it one of the 10th most populated urban centres in the world. The Río de la Plata and the Riachuelo are the natural borders of the city on the east and south, respectively. The rest of the metropolitan perimeter is surrounded by the General Paz Avenue from north to west. This avenue provides a fast connection between the city and the Greater Buenos Aires, a densely populated area with important business and industrial activity. 

Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in both Latin America and the world. Be it for its splendid and varied architecture, with its old Colonial buildings, French palaces and state-of-the-art skyscrapers; for its vibrant nightlife and endless cultural options; or maybe just for the rich identity of the Porteños, who proudly bear the European heritage of their ancestors, more and more are coming to visit.

Salta

Fast becoming one of the Argentina’s must-sees, Salta is an old colonial city filled with remarkable architecture, rugged natural landscapes, mountains, vineyards and valleys. Its beating heart, the city of Salta, has emerged only in the last few years as a shining beacon on the tourist map. The winning blend of sophistication, Latin gregariousness and frontier hospitality makes the mountainous region as charming as it is. 

Purmamarca

Purmamarca is a charming village located in the Jujuy province. The higlight of this village is the magnificent Seven Colours Hill which looms over the town and creates a stunning picturesque backdrop. This area is surrounded by breathtaking desert landscapes and is home to a popular crafts market and many shops selling colourful textiles.
