Instagram is everybody’s favourite app, and it’s a great way to do some visual homework about a destination before you go there. We round up the best accounts on Instagram to get your head round Argentine culture, celebrity and nature ahead of your trip to South America.

Lionel Messi @leomessi

Football prodigy and local hero Leo Messi should surely be top of the Argentine Instagram list. His account seems to give a fairly accurate portrayal of his life; from photos of Messi kicking balls on the pitch to reading bedtime stories to his son, Leo seems like an all round regular guy – except for his golden boot of course. Typical Argentine activities that Leo engages in are cooking asados, hanging out with his family at Christmas and hanging out with his hot girlfriend by the pool. You’ll also be treated to a glimpse of his very terrible tattoos. Enjoy!

Sergio Aguero @10aguerosergiokun

Argentina’s second hottest football sensation is Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero. The Argentine international/Manchester City player can be seen on and off the pitch, sometimes beside incredibly tacky Christmas trees, other times looking pensive after a fresh haircut. Overall Aguero looks like a pretty happy dude, albeit with occasionally dodgy facial hair – though he’s a footballer, so it’s allowed.
