What's Argentina Like?
Argentina's capital is not typical of the country. Buenos Aires is a bustling metropolis with a very European feel, its streets reminiscent of Paris, its atmosphere redolent of southern Italy, where much of the population originated. The tango clubs maintain the city's reputation for culture, although the real hotbeds of city passion are the football stadiums. The southern region of Patagonia is a land of dramatic landscapes carved by glaciers, but also of quiet villages settled by the Welsh, retaining the language and the tea-shops. Rural Argentina is traditionally a land of the vaqueros or cowboys and the huge ranches that rear the nation's beloved beef. These days it is just as likely to be the location of artisan vineyards growing the purple malbec grapes that have given Argentinian wine an international reputation. Argentina hotels offer the opportunity to uncover the treasures of this remarkable country.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Argentina
In the cities, English is widely spoken and understood, although a knowledge of Italian can be useful. Elsewhere a few Spanish phrases will be required to negotiate transactions in bars and railway stations. You'll notice that everyone in Argentina seems to carry around a little cup with a metal straw. This is mate, made from the yerba mate plant. Mate drinking can be something of an etiquette minefield. When the mate cup is passed it is considered bad form to wipe the straw and worse still to stir the tea. In Patagonia the tea ritual is more familiar, served with milk and sugar and a variety of cakes as an afternoon snack.
