Travel, Holiday and Tour Packages

Argentina is located in the southeastern of America and also is the largest Spanish-speaking country in Latin America. The name “Argentina” comes from the Latin word for silver, argentum. The original European settlers believed the country was full of silver, and there was a legend about a mountain made of silver in Argentina that reached Spain in 1524. Argentina is famous for their national football team with FIFA ranking and with the increasing stardom of their current top scorer, Lionel Messi, the officials of his hometown of Rosario have banned parents from naming their children “Messi” because they said it would lead to too much mass confusion. Besides that, Argentina is also famous for their diverse landscape, cosmetic surgery tourism, and the Tango dance. It was said that the Tango dance actually started out as an improvisation from brothels of Buenos Aires, reserved for prostitutes who shook their tail feathers with clients. On the other hand, The Iguazú Falls are comprised of over 275 cascades in the north of the country, on the border between Brazil and Argentina. The water tumbles over an impressive height of 80 meters and 3 kilometers wide. Many consider them the most amazing waterfalls in the world. The falls are surrounded by a subtropical rainforest and countless species of rare animals, including the endangered Vinaceous-breasted Amazon, a wild green parrot.
