As most people know, Argentina is full of great places to visit... For example, you can't come to Argentina and not visit Iguazú Falls, El Calafate or Mendoza... For us locals however, the porteños, these are places you need to visit once or twice, either because they are a little bit expensive or just because they are too far away...
