Sealions on the rocks surrounding Ushuaia

Argentina is a wonderful country. But it is also very big and very difficult to travel particularly when you are there only for a relatively short period. 

I received many emails from the visitors of my website about my travel in Argentina and Patagonia, asking me how I planned my travel there and how I managed to see most of the “highlights” in only 15 days.

I try to summarize an itinerary for you in 500 words, whatever for details you can read more on my website.

Here our recommended 15 days Itinerary in Argentina:

Day 1 – Arrive in Buenos Aires in the morning and check in in a B&B you booked well an advance in Buenos Aires, possibly in the area of Plaza de Mayo. Visit the area of San Telmo and Puerto Madero.

Day 2 – Visit Plaza de Mayo, the Casa Rosada, the Cathedral and the famous shopping area of Avenida Florida
