Argentina


Bienvenido, from one laid back culture to another!

Argentina, the world’s eighth-largest country, is a varied landscape of experiences and cultures. From the rapid beat of their large cities to their famous Dulce De Leche Alfajore biscuits, and renowned natural wonders like Iguazu Falls, there’s something for everyone to fall in love with!

Argentines are proud of their laidback lifestyle, that includes an afternoon siesta in some provincial towns, family gatherings which go on for hours and hours, and dinners starting at 11pm. It’s true! It is not uncommon to see a restaurant empty at 9pm, but bustling with hungry diners from midnight onwards.

Did you know that it’s an Argentinian tradition to eat gnocchi (ñoquis) on the 29th day of every month?! Italian migration to Argentina is big, in fact that’s where the largest number of Italians live outside of Italy. Who would have thought that this South American gem was a fantastic place to discover not only Argentina’s rich culture, but also Italy’s!?

The country is known for its extreme wilderness, with the Andes Mountain range stretching across the country. Argentina boasts the highest point in the Southern Hemisphere (Mount Aconcagua) and the lowest (Laguna del Carbon). Also, both the coldest and the hottest temperatures ever recorded in South America, were recorded here! Talk about a country of extremes.

Scratch the surface for yourself and discover what an incredible student exchange destination Argentina is!
