A contrasting country
Argentina gets its name from the Latin word argentum which means silver as it was once a rich source of it. The country, however, has since evolved into becoming one of the top producers and exporters of livestock and cereals. The region of Gran Chaco is especially known for being an optimum place to breed cattle and grow stocks, in particular cotton. In contrast the region of Patagonia is a glacial province renowned for its fjords, lakes and mountains. Though sometimes daunting it is a region that is mesmerising to witness.
Argentina is also known for having both the lowest and highest points in the western hemisphere with Laguna del Carbon (105m) and Cerro Aconcagua (6960m) respectively. It is a country of many contrasts that will leave you in awe at such diversity. A trip to Argentina will be an unforgetable adventure.
