Argentina Travel Information


Argentina Flag Argentina (Spanish: República Argentina) is the 2nd largest country in South America. it is located at the southeastern corner of the continent, and is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the East, the Southern Ocean at the South, and the Andes to the West. It shares land borders with Chile in the West and South, and with Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay in the North. Additionally, Argentina also claims sovereignty over the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands which are administered by Britain (this dispute led to the 1982 Falklands War), as well as a portion of Antarctica.

As of 2009, the population of Argentina was estimated as 40,134,425. The capital and largest city, Buenos Aires has a population of over 3 million, with more than 10 million more people living in the city's metropolitan area.

In 1913, Argentina was the 10th wealthiest nation per capita, but it then entered a long period of relative economic decline. Today the country is today considered an upper-middle income country, and despite some improvements in recent years, the country is still struggling with some economic difficulties, particularly in the wake of the international financial crisis that began in 2007.
