Argentina is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. From incredible, lively cities to vast expanses of nothingness, romance abounds in the land of tango and Malbec. We check out the best destinations for newlyweds who’d like to take their honeymoon in Argentina.
The magic of the Iguazu Falls is certainly unparalleled. This collection of 250 waterfalls is mesmerisingly beautiful, and one of the most romantic ways to experience the falls in all their glory is to take a moonlight tour of the national park, which happens once a month during the full moon.
Recoleta, Buenos Aires
Recoleta is surely one of the most romantic neighbourhoods in all of Argentina. This upscale area is the reason why Buenos Aires is nicknamed ‘the Paris of South America’, and it lives up to its name. French-style buildings abound, the area is saturated with stunning hotels and residences and it is where Eva and Juan Perón lived for a time. There are also plenty of high-end boutiques and shops where honeymooners can while away a few hours.
Palermo, Buenos Aires
For the trendsetting couple, Palermo is the perfect place to stay for a honeymoon. Full of hip bars, restaurants and cafés, Palermos Soho and Hollywood are the places to be seen in the Argentine capital. There is no shortage of stuff to do and see, and with new chic eateries popping up all the time, it is a great choice for foodies and those who enjoy a delicious cocktail.
Couples seeking out a bit of adventure on their honeymoon should head for El Chalten, the trekking capital of Argentine Patagonia. With endless trails, hikes, waterfalls, glaciers and rivers, there is nowhere quite like this tiny town in the rest of the country. Not only that, but because tourism to the area is increasing all the time, there are lots of craft beer bars and restaurants serving traditional Patagonian dishes such as disco de pollo and cordero a la cruz.
People looking to experience Argentina’s indigenous side should head north to the province of Jujuy. The tiny enclave of Tilcara is a picturesque little settlement, and visitors will be charmed by the location, which is at the foot of the famous Quebrada de Humahuaca, the area’s most stunning rock formation. Buy artisanal goods and eat the delicious fried empanadas the region is known for.
San Antonio de Areco
Aspiring cowboys and cowgirls should drive the two hours outside the capital of Buenos Aires to Argentina’s very own Wild West town, San Antonio de Areco. This is gaucho heartland, and you will be able to experience the real rural life of Argentina in this tiny yet enchanting village. Eat traditional Argentine food and buy yourself some alpargatas (espadrilles) and leather belts typical of the gaucho style.
Bariloche in Argentine Patagonia has something for everyone. Whether you are looking for a ski holiday in winter, to pig out on chocolate in the city, take a road trip around the Ruta 40 and the lake district, to fish in the amazing lakes that proliferate in the area or stay in a world-class hotel with dramatic views of the surrounding scenery, Bariloche has it all.
