Visitors to Perito Moreno in February will see the huge chunks of falling ice, and during springtime, as well as during September’s wine festival, Mendoza and Quebrada de Humahuaca are prime attractions to explore.

Visit the vast Palermo neighborhood and its many districts for trendy shopping and eclectic restaurants. Swing through La Boca barrio to see the brightly painted houses in all sorts of pastel colors and hit San Telmo's Plaza Dorrego for antique markets and casual tango dancing where anyone can participate.
