As the second largest country in South America (and the 8th largest in the world), Argentina has a lot of ground to cover - literally. When planning my trip, it was really important to me that I get a mix of city and nature, to hit a few must-have destinations while still leaving room for things a bit off the beaten path. Loaded up on tons of visual inspiration (thanks to my VoyJoie Pinterest Boards), my first round of editing allowed me to narrow down my choices to 5 key destinations: Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza & Patagonia.
I was fortunate to have 12 days in Argentina but I also wanted to ensure I spent a minimum of 2-3 nights in each destination so it didn't feel like I was constantly moving around. So I rolled up my sleeves and started looking into what each location had to offer...
True confession - I tried my best to see if I could squeeze in all 5 destinations and I did not succeed. There were a couple of factors that got in the way.
So where did I finally end up going? Drum roll please...
It was a great trip and the timing in each area worked perfectly for me. I felt like I got a great sense of each destination and left Argentina fully satisfied with how much time I had there. I was also blown away by the country so I knew that I would be back for more...
Here is my final itinerary for my trip to Argentina:
