1 Tigre and the Paraná Delta

Like having the Everglades on the doorstep of Manhattan – Tigre and the nearby islets offer a vivid green reminder that Buenos Aires is a subtropical city.

2 San Antonio de Areco

This postcard-perfect pampas town is a goldmine of rural culture and traditional crafts – and home to one of the country’s main gaucho festivals.

3 Estancias

The fertile Pampas provide the ideal setting for many of the country’s best-appointed and most famous ranches, giving visitors a taste of country life within easy access of Buenos Aires.

4 Sierra de la Ventana

The craggy Sierra de la Ventana range in the west of the province has a well-earned reputation for enjoyable riding, cosy but rustic chalets and delicious picada platters.

5 Small beach resorts

The intimate yet fashionable resorts of Cariló, Mar de las Pampas and Mar del Sud offer quiet sands, aromatic pine forests and long walks along the oceanfront.
