Argentina: Buenos Aires, Ushuaia and the Falklands

Argentina: Buenos Aires, Ushuaia and the Falklands

Argentina, the second largest country in South America, offers a wide variety of natural wonders and cultural attractions. Our first stop is to the cosmopolitan capital city of Buenos Aires, a cultural centerpiece, which includes the La Boca district, a picturesque old port known as the birthplace of the Tango, plus the Casa Rosada, the presidential palace, also known as the pink palace, this is where political history was born on May 25, 1810, when the patriots gathered and rid the city of Spanish conquerors, and where Evita Peron gave her famous speeches. Next we explore the Tierra del Fuego peninsula and visit the most southern city in the world, Ushuaia, at the foot of the Andes and tucked along the Beagel Channel, named for its majestic shape; then we travel south to the Falkland Islands, remembered for its war in the 1980s, and well known for its rugged beauty, wildlife and brightly colored homes. Captain John Davis of England discovered these islands in 1592. 04/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
