Highlights
A place to enjoy all four seasons and every type of scenery imaginable. Each and every region in this country can offer something different, as Argentina has most of the physical conditions known to man: heat, cold, forest, desert, mountains, endless plains and big cities. Yet, the most remarkable feature in this wide variety of areas is its unspoiled nature, making the country a very attractive touristic destination.
Located in the southern extreme of the American continent, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world and one of the most exquisite, too. The beauty of the jungle of the Northeast gives way to the grassy Pampas (sprawling westward from the city of Buenos Aires) and to the windswept Patagonian desert further south.
From the Northwest, the semi-arid area of the Puna, inhabited by llamas and alpacas, turns South into the Patagonian Andes, a land of forests, lakes, and glaciers, narrowing towards Antarctica.
Argentina’s name
It comes from the Latin “argentum”, that means silver. The origin of this name goes back to the trips of the first Spanish conquerors to El Río de la Plata (The River Plate). The shipwrecked people of Juan Díaz de Solís’s expedition found aborigens who gave them silver objects. Near 1524 they spread the news about this Plate Hill, a mountain full of that precious metal. From that moment on the Portuguese called Solis’s river as “El Río de la Plata”. Two years later, the Spanish also started to use that name. The National Constitution passed in 1853 included the name “The Republic of Argentina” as the official name of the government and territory of his Nation.
Situation, extension and limits Placed in South America (therefore in the south hemisphere of the planet), Argentina has an extension of almost 3,8 million Km, 2,8 belong to the continent - with approximately 54 % of plains (meadows and savannah), 23 % of tableland and the other 23 % of hills and mountains. The rest is in the Antarctic sector. Its 3.800 kilometres of surface go from 22º up to 55º Latitude South. Argentina borders on Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Chile on a perimeter of 9.376 kilometres. The Atlantic Ocean side accounts for 4.725 kilometres.
Geography
The main characteristic of Argentine geography is the immense contrast offered between its huge oriental plains and the impressive Andes mountain chain in the west, which includes the highest summit of the western hemisphere: the Aconcagua, (6959 meters).

From Jujuy to Tierra del Fuego, the mountain chain shows a wonderful variety of landscape: altiplanes on the northwest (desert, valleys, ravine and coloring hills) and lakes, forests and glaciers of the Patagonia in the south.

Chaco, in the north of the country is a forest area limited by three rivers: Bermejo, Salado and Pilcomayo.

Between the rivers Parana and Uruguay we find the Argentine Mesopotamia (which includes Entre Ríos, Corrientes and Misiones provinces). It is formed by hills, lagoons and swamp that mark the former tracings of those big rivers. In the middle of the subtropical jungle, cliffs look as spectacular as Iguazú Falls. In the center of Argentina, the pampeana region is the most extensive and famous plain. We find strong agricultural and cattle development, in Buenos Aires, in the north-east of La Pampa and south of Cordoba and Santa Fe. The area is located between Tandil and La Ventana hills on the south, and Cordoba hills in the west. Towards the south, from the Andes to the sea, the sterile and stony Patagonian plateaus go down affected by the wind most time of the year. The Atlantic littoral bordered by high cliffs, creates amazing figures, as Peninsula Valdés, with its spectacular state-run of marine animals.
Climate
Argentina has a great weather variety: mild and humid in the pampeana plain, cold and humid in the extreme west of the Patagonia, subtropical in the north Mesopotamia and hot in the Northwest. From November until March, the average temperature is 23ºC and, from June to September, 12ºC. In June the temperature goes from 18°C to 9°C.
Population
Nowadays, Argentina has a population of over 40 million inhabitants. The majority of the population is Spanish and Italian descendants. But there are also French, Swiss, Polish, Jewish, Armenian, German and British communities. With the massive European immigration, native blood was diluted to a point that the pure aborigine population (Mapuches, Collas, Tobas, Matacos and Chiriguanos) represents nowadays 0.5% of the country’s total inhabitants.
Religion
The official religion is Roman Catholic Apostolic, though there is total freedom of worship. Besides Protestantism, Judaism, Islamism, orthodox Greek religion, the orthodox Russian one and others are practiced as well.
Language
The official language of Argentina is Spanish.
Entry Formalities
All countries in the world are accepted to enter Argentina. No delegates will be denied a visa to enter our country and the entry formality is only the current passport with or without Visa, depending on the passenger nationality. No vaccination certificate is required, except for passengers coming from countries where cholera and yellow fever are endemic.

Transportation within the city
Buenos Aires is arranged in blocks, so it’s easy to get around if you know the essentials. The city has a large and ever-expanding public transport network, and almost 40,000 licensed taxis (that’s 3 times as many as New York). The hop-on, hop-off tourist bus is a must if you’re short of time and keen to see the highlights. Bicycle lanes and pedestrian streets in the city centre make cycling and walking a nice alternative.
Bus
Known locally as ‘colectivos’ or ‘bondis’, buses are a cheap and efficient way to get around the city. Over 180 numbered lines run regularly, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and you0ll rarely find yourself more than a couple of blocks from a stop.
Fares within the city range between $13 and $14 pesos and must be paid with a rechargeable SUBE card (details below). Tell the bus driver where you are headed (most passengers give the name of the crossroad nearest to where they wish to get off) and he will let you know the fare.)

The Metrobus is a system of dedicated bus lanes designed to cut journey times on several of the city's main arteries. Several Metrobus stations have free WiFi access. Make sure you stand in line (bus queuing is respected in Buenos Aires), and note that people queue to the right of the bus stop, not the left.
Subte (Underground train network)
The subte may be the oldest in Latin America (the first line opened in 1913 - click here for a timeline), but it remains the quickest way to get around the city. Four líneas (lines), A, B, D and E, run in parallel from the centre to the western and northern outskirts, while línea C runs north–south, connecting the two major train stations of Retiro and Constitución. Línea H, the newest line, runs from Las Heras Avenue south to Hospitals.

To travel on the Subte, you'll need a rechargeable SUBE card (see below). SUBE cards can be recharged at the windows in subte stations. Each journey costs $13.50 pesos, no matter how many connections you make.

Trains operate every three to ten minutes depending on the line, from 5am to 10.30pm Monday to Saturday, and 8am to 10pm on Sundays and public holidays. Unsurprisingly, trains can get very crowded during rush hour (8am-9.30am and 5pm-7pm). Línea A carriages are air-conditioned.

A number of subte stations have free WiFi access.
Cycling in BA
Buenos Aires has over 130km of bicycle lanes, and public bicycles are available for residents and tourists to hire from over 80 bike stations across the city. This public bike share system, known as Ecobici, allows registered users to borrow bicycles for free, 24/7.

Users can take bikes for up to an hour. If they want to continue to use the system, they must wait 15 minutes before picking up a new bike.

How to register
Register as a user here www.buenosaires.gob.ar/ecobici/registro-sistema-ecobici or by downloading the BA Ecobici app on your cellphone (www.buenosaires.gob.ar/ecobici). You can also scan the QR barcode at the bicycle pick-up station to download the app. Once you validate your details on receipt of a confirmation email from Ecobici, you are fully registered and free to use the scheme. Real-time updates on the availability of bikes at bike stations, together with pick-up station addresses and cycle path maps, can be found here: www.buenosaires.gob.ar/ecobici/sistema-ecobici/mapa-bicis. More information, including discounts and promotions on cycle gear, and even a tool to measure your ecological footprint, can be found on the EcoBici website: www.buenosaires.gob.ar/ecobici.
Taxis
BA is awash with licensed black and yellow taxis, and in busy areas you are unlikely to wait more than a couple of minutes for one. Taxis can be flagged down off the street (on the right-hand side). You’ll be able to tell if one is available if the ‘libre’ (free) sign is lit up in red or white on the taxi’s windscreen on the passenger side. It is common to give a direction using the cross street, for example instead of saying “Corrientes 585” you would say “Corrientes y Florída”, since Florída is the nearest cross street to that address. Licensed taxis run on meters, and tariffs are exclusively in pesos (ARS $). Fares rise by 20% at night. If you want to order a taxi from a fixed place, there are several radio taxis companies from which taxis can be ordered in advance. A good idea would be to ask your hotel to recommend you one. Should you wish to make a complaint against a taxi driver, please call 0800-999-2838 or send an email to taxis@buenosaires.gob.ar.

Security: cut your risks
Buenos Aires is a safe city, but as in any other big city, precautions must be taken. Practice the same caution you would practice when visiting a major metropolitan destination in your country. Please follow these recommendations, and we are sure that your stay in Buenos Aires will be very pleasant.

• Move around with only a photocopy of your identification papers. Photocopies of valuables such as passport, tickets, driving license and travelers’ checks should be kept separately from the originals.

• Carry only the minimum amount of cash that you need for the day. Men should keep their wallets in their inside pockets. It is a good idea to keep small bills in trouser pockets, and not to take out the wallet more than necessary. Women carrying a purse should try to keep it next to their bodies. In case they carry shoulder bags, they must be sure not to let them hang loosely over their shoulder.

• Don’t carry all your cards with you; leave at least one in the hotel safe. If you lose or have your credit card stolen cancel it immediately by phoning the relevant 24-hour emergency number.

• It is better not to bring valuables to the meetings, unless absolutely necessary. Expensive jewelry, cameras and similar objects should never be left in the hotel room but rather locked in the hotel’s safety box.

• Do not wear your badges outside the Congress venue or carry around conference bags. Both identify you as a foreigner. Do not walk down deserted or badly lit streets after dark.

• Do not change money on the street; do it in banks or money exchange bureaus.
