With bustling Buenos Aires as its capital, the sultry tango as its preferred form of expression, a game of soccer as its favored pastime, and a savory slice of asado as its perfect meal, it’s obvious to see why spectators and visitors alike have dubbed Argentina the “ Paris of the South.” Yet, there is even more to this South American country than what first meets the senses. In the second edition of Moon Argentina, part-time Buenos Aires resident and Latin America expert Wayne Bernhardson presents first time travelers and returning visitors with the tools they need to partake of Argentina’s inspirational settings and vibrant people. Travel with ease as Bernhardson lends advice and unique perspectives on Argentina’s most famous attractions, such as tango capital, Buenos Aires , the Iguazú Falls, and the Moreno Glacier. For those seeking to get off well traversed paths, Moon Argentina provides equally comprehensive coverage of less visited, but impressive sights like the Iberá wetlands, the wineries of Mendoza, the canyon country of the Andean Northwest, the endless coastline and vast steppes of Patagonia, and the “uttermost part of the earth” in Tierra del Fuego. Additionally, the book includes 60 maps, color photographs, a glossary, and a Spanish phrasebook. Trip ideas are included to show the reader the best of Argentina, the history of Argentina, the art and architecture of Argentina, renowned Argentine vineyards, and Argentina ’s natural environments.
