Going shopping in Argentina is one of the favorite activities for visitors and citizens alike. Its capital, Buenos Aires, is full of shops that cater for all tastes. From the most exclusive designers in the neighborhood of Palermo to the clothing and vintage stores of San Telmo.
One of the most valued items is Argentine silver. Of Creole tradition - formerly it was used in religious decoration and in household utensils - today it is one of the most common materials in the country's jewellery, often incorporated into pieces with rhodochrosite, a reddish pink stone typical of Argentina.
A typical object, found in almost all Argentinian homes is the mate bowl, a small wooden and metal bulb shaped bowl, used to drink mate, a traditional herbal tea infusion which is of great cultural significance throughout South America. Argentine wine is worth taking home with you and can be found in supermarkets throughout the country.
“The organisation which included tours, transfers and internal flights was excellent. Local tour companies were spot on with communication and we had friendly English speaking tour guides throughout. We knew the trip would be 'full-on' to fit in everything scheduled but it was just fantastic and worth the effort.”
“‘Stunning locations and great to explore so much in such a short space of time.’
“‘The hotel in Rio was excellent and in an amazing position. The airport pickups were all waiting for us on arrival and the pickups and guides for the tours were all punctual, friendly and informative.’
