Travel Notes: Latin America: Argentina: Argentina Cities


Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and in the summer it seems that every one leaves the city for the cool hill country of Cordoba or the beaches of Mar del Plata.

In the winter, Bariloche becomes the popular destination for skiers.

Quick Links

Bahia Blanca, Bariloche, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Mar del Plata, Mendoza, Rosario, Salta.

Bahia Blanca

When Ferdinand Magellan first sailed along the coast in 1520, the estuary probably reflected the salt deposits along the shore; giving the Spaniards the feeling of a somewhat milky white bay - Bahia Blanca.

Colonel Ramon Estomba later established the Fortaleza Protectora Argentina (Argentine Protective Fortress) here, on 11th April, 1828.

Municipalidad de Bahia Blanca:
The official municipality website is only available in Spanish.


Bariloche, Argentina

San Carlos de Bariloche is on the southern shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi, in western Argentina.

If you feel like you're in an Alpine town, it's probably because Austrians and Germans settled here around 1895.

Bariloche attracts skiers in the winter and hikers in the summer. Boating and fishing are also popular on the lake.

You'll also arrive here if you're travelling to or from Puerto Mont in Chile.

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

The capital of Argentina, founded in 1580, is situated inland from the Atlantic Ocean; on the western bank of the Rio de la Plata.

The Plaza de Mayo, close to the waterfront, is where the city began, and it has expanded in ever-widening semi-circles.

The Avenida de Mayo runs west from the Plaza de Mayo to the National Congress.

To the north of Avenida de Mayo are the more wealthier suburbs, while the colourful La Boca neighbourhood of working class families and descendants of Italian emigrants lies to its south.

Argentines like their meat and tend to dine out late. It's not uncommon to be the only guest in a restaurant before nine in the evening.

Cordoba, Argentina

Founded on the Rio Primero, in central Argentina, by the Spaniard Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera in 1573, Cordoba became one of the major centres of learning in South America.

The Jesuits founded the National University of Cordoba in 1613. The city is also home to an astronomical observatory and the National Meteorological Institute.

The beautiful hill country surrounding Cordoba makes it a popular summer escape from the heat of Buenos Aires.

Mar del Plata

The most popular seaside resort in Argentina is at Cape Corrientes on the Atlantic Ocean.

Midsummer is January and February, and the beaches are packed with people from Buenos Aires. It's literally, standing room only.

Mar del Plata:
Mar del Plata has excellent road and rail links with most of Argentina. The majority of people come to Mar del Plata for the beaches; General Pueyrredon district's 47 km coastline contains a huge variety to choose from.

Rosario is the second most important city in the Republic of Argentina.

It is located in the south of the province of Santa Fe, along the shores of the Parana river, and is approximately 300kms north-west of the capital, Buenos Aires.

Basic information for visitors to Rosario.


Colonial architecture draws the tourists to Argentina's north-west.

The cathedral and numerous churches, government buildings, and private mansions throughout the area reflect its Spanish colonial past.

Salta's fiesta time is in September.
