Aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and expert advice from a trustworthy source, National Geographic Travelers provide ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the true feel of each destination not easily found online.

Argentina travel writer Wayne Bernhardson shares his insider knowledge in this completely updated and revised guidebook on the world's eighth largest country. Beginning in the exciting capital city of Buenos Aires, the book travels to every province, from the ice-chilled tip of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego in the south to the Incan-influenced realm of the north, taking you to the country's most famous sites, and lesser known ones as well. The book is peppered with ideas for getting behind the scenes to study the Argentine language, celebrate the tango, wine-taste in some of the world's most famous wineries, and more. Insider Tips from National Geographic and local experts show you where the locals go. Mapped walks include a self-guided ramble through BA's colonial core; drives range from the amazing landscapes of the Cafayete-Cachi Loop in Salta Province to the spectacular Sierras del Cordoba. The book is rounded out with a hefty Travelwise section, including special hotels and restaurants, shopping, activities, and entertainment.
