Destination Overview

Argentina is the largest Spanish-speaking nation and the eighth largest country in the world.

It is located in southeastern South America and is nestled among Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Chili, and the South Atlantic Ocean. The country was colonized by Spain in the 1500s and has hosted many European immigrants over the centuries, giving it a rich and very European atmosphere. Argentina has been described as the “Paris of Latin America,” and its reasonable cost of living makes it a very attractive destination.
